Help me choose a Vostok

Hi all, 

I'm wanting to grow my mediocre watch collection but I'm not currently in the market for anything pricey. 

I've never owned a Vostok watch but I just wanted some recommendations, things to look out for, etc. 

Cheers in advance,

I'd say a Scuba Dude Amphibia of your choice.

Of course Amfibia Zissou because that's what I'm wearing today 😎

Love it! Thats a pretty swanky strap!

Good luck in your search!

They're all pretty cool, I don't think you can go wrong.  Just be aware that you're buying a $100 automatic watch, so don't expect fancy.  They're more of the gritty Russian solution to the problem of depth than the slick Swiss solution.  But again, they're cool and still a great value at $100.

For what it's worth, I like these...

Get one without a date function because setting the date on these is a pain in the pitootties.  Try this site for a nice selection and great service.

From everything I've read the crowns are a bit rough... Are they really that bad???😂

They have...character.  When you pull the crown out to set the time it wobbles around as if it were broken.  Other than that it's fine.

After I bought my Casio Duro, these were next.

Buy it from anyone but a Russian. There are Ebay sellers from Ukraine so try to patronize one of them.
