My Vostok 420 Scuba Dude is the exact opposite of the Max Bill I wore yesterday. It was designed by an engineer instead of an industrial designer, it’s clunky instead of refined, it has the class of a farm hand dragging his muddy boots all over your carpets and was intended to be worn by people who would rather see you dead than at the opera. All that and more and that’s before comparing material, fit and finish or proportions.
However, it has its own charm. The small diameter is perfect for my wrist, the thick acrylic is an engineering marvel that I can't stop admiring and it's a very colorful and fun summer watch to wear once it's fitted with a Barton bicolor hybrid silicone strap and the Seiko Pepsi bezel. It's also cheap as chips and is infinitely customizable.
The brilliant case locking mechanism also ensure it can boast a feature that very few other watches share: a perfectly aligned case back that will remain straight and water proof no matter how many time the case is opened.
I'm a big fan of watches that are interesting because they are either unique, have interesting features, well designed or simply offer a great value for their price.
