I’ve got some really cool watches in my collection. Some of them are pretty rare and I don’t like to wear them all the time but what’s the point in having a watch if you can’t use it? This is my favorite Soviet era watch. I like it so much that I’ve got several of them in my collection. A few of them I don’t use because I don’t want to damage them but this is a watch that I wear from time to time. Last week offered extremely good conditions for taking good photos in Stockholm so I wore the watch and took some really good snapshots during the night. A few parts on this watch has been changed by previous owners and later, by me.
The NVCh-30 is a military issued watch. It was part of the diving equipment onboard submarines.
I discovered this watch when the project with the reissue was just finished. It’s supposed to be a modern reissue of the legendary NVCh-30, type 350 but I can’t say that it looks much like the original. It’s fine with me. I like the design and I think it’s earned an own identity beside all other Vostok divers.
The light in Stockholm was fantastic one summer morning when I took these snapshots.
