    I just got back... sitting on my laptop and drolling on the VC videos from Mlcor... and receive the package from Quebec this mornin'!

    Daniel has send me a package without me knowing whats's in it, but since it's been about a month from the 10 days arriving target, he let me know that he sent me a watch, and like a reading my mind, he sent me a watch that i always wish but never thought that i ever own one... its a vostox scuba dude black dial with ministry Case!!! YeeePeeeee!!!!

    its like a belated birthday present for my birthday this month... when Daneil got my strap give-away, he told me he never won a give away, i told him so am i hehehe, he let me know that my luck is about to change, and i never thought he give me a watch that i've been drolling since it is impossible to get one here!

    i really like the combo and rubber strap... i know nothing about vostox, but i really love the exsotic russian writing, and i'm a BIG fan of cushion case plus it is black dial!
    i have not search the case size, but he it is sit on my 6,7" wrist and it think the size is perfect!, what do you think?

    Nice one, Iyonk - one of the Russian classics!
    And cool, Daniel, you rock!
    Beware, though - it is impossible to just have one Russian watch..
    It's the final countdown! PM me before they're all gone!

    I like the last strap watch combo best. The distressed look suits the watch very well, in my opinion.

    Yes, Henry, i feel the same too.. the distressed one seem to fit it nicely... right now it's back on the rubber for me to enjoy until i have time to make one especially for this watch..

    Good things happen to good people. Lyonk - you have been a pleasure to have on this forum. I also agree that the last strap matches the watch best.

    Side note - DM71, what a great gesture! Again, good things happen to good people.

    trust me it wont be your last I got my first back in the late 90's or 2000's can't remember had it that long but now I have over 60 with another couple on the way so I bet it won't be long for you

    but as kath say's not a bad choice for the first the old dude it's one of the sort after Russians that are new

    so +1 every one's else comments too very nice thought from Daniel
