Vostok Amphibia

Regular price £139.00 Sale

"State Quality Mark of the USSR"

This quirky diving watch takes us back to a time when scuba diving was for real men fighting sharks with their dive knifes. It is really a refurbished 1960 Soviet army diver's watch. 200 meters waterproof and made in the USSR, complete with the State Quality Mark on the case back (see pictures)

The Amphibia watches have a very interesting construction. Contrary to other dive watches, the crystal and case are designed to flex and bend around each other, creating a seal that gets tighter the deeper it submerges. The winding experience is one of a kind because as the crown unscrews it hangs very loose. Clearly a design far from any other dive watch.

All images of the actual watch for sale.

This watch comes in a generic black presentation box, certificate of authenticity and one year warranty from Arlington watches.
