My first proper watch: a Vostok komandirskie
It is absolutely amazing
I have always really liked watches, but until now, never owned a cool watch or a watch that I even thought was cool. For comparison, here is the watch I used to have...
Ew, is that a huge pile of shit? no, it's a watch, but it is very hard to tell the difference
As you can see, it is utter crap. So crap that most of it fell off. I have had 3 of these, the first I broke playing conkers, the second I broke by heating it up with a blow torch until it exploded (yes, watches explode when you heat them up apparently) and this third one just broke on its own. After a while of not wearing watches I decided to get a proper watch. A watch with some character, a watch that wouldn't explode, but also a watch that wouldn't empty my bank account. After some thorough research (looking on ebay) I decided on this vostok komandirskie.
I love pretty much everything about this watch, the way it looks, the way it feels and everything else. The design is very cool and I really like the red star and the chunky numbers. One of my favorite things is how unbreakable it feels, like you could run it over with a tank and the tank would break. It also supposedly can go 20m underwater, but I will not be testing that.
Does anyone know what it says on the back?
