Vintage wristwatches

Welcome to my collection of Russian or Soviet era wristwatches.

Vostok Amphibian Ivlia

Wristwatches Posted on %AM, January 07 2020 09:54:34

This is a pretty ordinary watch except for the dial. I thought the dial showed a viking ship but it’s a Greek rowing warship. In 1989 a copy of the ship was constructed. This type of ship was widely used in the northern Black sea in ancient times. The ship Ivlia (Julia? ) started a voyage 1989 from the Black sea to the Mediterranean sea and continued to the Atlantic sea. The voyage finally continued up the Seine river to reach Paris 1994. It’s this ship that you see on the dial of the watch.

Vostok Amphibian Zissou

Zissou. This watch is called Zissou because Bill Murray wore a watch with this dial when he played Zissou in the movie “Life Aquatic”.
The dial is from the beginning of the 90’s and is transitional. The text where it is supposed to say where the watch was made is missing from the bottom of the dial.
A stainless steel type 420 watch case with an automatic 2416b movement.
