    My first ever Russian!...Thank you very-very much DM71 (Daniel)!

    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!!!!

    the package received..

    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?

    this watch will be treasured and worn with BIG Pride!!! i honestly love it!...

    Daniel told me its ok for me to change the rubber strop to handmade leather, you read me like a book Daniel.. i'll definitely do it!






    i still waiting the package from Sherry to arrive, i've been asking the post office and paying the postman to check about it... hopefully i'll receive it very soon... i so excited to receive the UFO Pulsar and '78 seiko digital =)


    i'll continue the pictorial latter... once again... Thank you so much Daniel!!!

    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.

    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
    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 ...
