St Patrick's Day special!

Not being someone who has much green in their clothing and accessory catalogue (or a catalogue of these things, for that matter), I decided that this vintage Komandirskie with a vertical fade green to greenish gold dial and butterscotch leather strap would make a great choice today. Just enough green to be valid as a celebratory accessory this evening when my sweetheart and I don our blinky green necklaces and green rugby jerseys for karaoke! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ€

I haven't shared enough of my vintage collection here. Please let me know what you think of this one. Cheers, all! ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ˜Ž

All I can say is to sing Frank Sinatraโ€™s โ€˜Fly me to the Moonโ€™ with powerful vibrato while enjoying a green ale.

Same decision I made! Also same dial but different cases. I like yours with the slightly smaller 420 case better though ๐Ÿ˜€

EDIT: actually, yours may not be the 420 case ... looks similar shape to mine; bezels are obviously different though. Prefer your round bezel to the scalloped one on mine.

That's a pretty cool old beast! I have several with similar bezels, and I fall in and out of love with the chunky design.

I think it looks great and they are seriously tough old watches. Pretty reliable and not bad accuracy, to boot! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I do like Vostok

Yes they're movements are a bit crude and antiquated but these watches have a real old world charm, and of course their movements and cases are all made in the Chistopol factory

Although I believe their stainless cases are outsourced

That appears to be the 307 dial which is still produced today. I can't pick the case reference but it looks nice and seems to be in quite nice condition. That strap complements the watch well and is a vast improvement over the very basic but functional standard strap.

That's very nice !!!
