Buying Russian watches from

I have always been dreaming about owning “Vostok” watches when I was a kid. Back in those days, Soviet Union was still alive, and finding Vostok “Komandirskie” or “Amfibiya” was quite hard 🙂 Now, when everyone has swiss or japanease quartz watches, owning a pair of Russian/Soviet made mechanical watches might be not a bad idea.

So, I started to search and I finally came up with the website of a Vostok factory: situated in Russia. Contacted them via “Contact” page asking if they ship outside Russian, and voila:

Two weeks later I finally got my watches delivered at home. I am very happy with their services as they suggested multiple options to pay for the watches including paying by Visa via They sent the watches and gave me the post tracking number which allowed me to trace the package in Russia untill it reaches Moscow (takes 6 days) and then I used my country post web site to trace it till it came to my doors.

I recommend using for purchasing watches as you can buy there watches directly from factory, thus it is cheaper and more secure.
