    **** So what's your thoughts on the Vostok factory going to short time hours ****

    well after the rumours from several of the bigger watch distributor that no new sales of the vostok will be happening any time soon is it mass panic or things to come with the falling ruble and the unrest out there is it impacting the Russian watch industries more then we realize ?

    I for one don't really look to the politics out there at the minute I'm all about the watches more then anything but thought I would see what the general consensus is of the I.W.L folk is on this and thought to give a place to air one's view on this matter
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Russia usually shuts down for the first two weeks of each year for their new year celebrations, let's hope they reopen afterwards.

    It has been a difficult time for the Russian makers for sure. I've noticed fewer and fewer Russian movements in watches sold by Vostok Europe. They used to get quite nice movements from the Vostok Chistopol factory. Now makers like Zavtra are using Chinese movements.

    so things to come it's a shame but as I love the old and unloved pure Russian watches of the 70's 80's 90's then should be ok for a while lol. but does make it harder to find the true watches in the more expensive chronos now it is becoming a bit of a mine field to pick the true original one's which is a shame I take a lot of chance with some of mine but when you are paying sub 50 it don't really matter if you get a dud once in a while but think it will get to be more expensive hobbie on the Russian front now .. were at the time it was a cheap fun past time .. do love the unusually one's and the Russians had a knack for creating some wonderful ones

    Sounds like a good time to invest in some Scuba Dudes before they become extinct.......
