The Vostok name was adopted in the 1960s, and the Amphibia arrived in 1968. It is driven by the 31 jewel Vostok 2416b automatic movement. It has been described as being tougher than Russian steak.
It has a power reserve of over 30 hours. Water resistance is 200m, achieved by superb design of the glass, which compresses and flexes as the pressure increases. At higher pressure, the case back is also pressed tighter against the seal, increasing water resistance as the watch is submerged to greater depth. Vostok watches have even travelled into space, on the wrists of Soviet Cosmonauts J W Romanenko and Georgi Grechko.

Q: The crown and winding stem seem loose when I change the time/wind the watch, is this normal? On Vostok Amphibia/Komandirskie models, the crown and winding stem are connected by a ball and socket type fitting. This is an normal design feature that reduces lateral pressure on the stem should you decide to wind or change the time whilst the watch is on your wrist.
This feature is also used on some models of high end watches by Omega and Patek Philipe. Q: Does the bezel turn smoothly or with clicks? A: Vostok bezels rotate smoothly. Q: Does changing the bezel affect the water resistance?
A: --No-- the bezel is an external cosmetic part and plays no part in the water resistance. Q: How do I change the date?

A: Please don't hesitate to send me a message, I will get back to you as soon as possible. =========IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR WATCHES FITTED WITH A SHARK MESH STRAP===========. If this watch has a.
