Extremely Rare Military Vostok Precision Cal;2809A Received.

 




This watch is extremely rare.I have enclosed a period cat` page from 1968 showing the watch.
It has the Correct Vostok 2809 A movement installed.

I never actually thought i would ever add this rarest of the Vostok precisions,to my collection.
It was for sale on e.bay U.K,of all places,it went for a ridiculously low price,most undervalued.
The extremely honest seller/collector,had shown excellent pictures,i can only assume the other bidders out there had not done there homework and thought it was a Franken [Fake].

I have only seen this type a hand full of times on the Russian forum,[the best and most knowledgeable forum].



The seller advertised it as having military connections,and there is anecdotal evidence that it could have been military issue.
Great Result.

  2. Hello Ralf,
    Lovely to hear from you.
    Yes,i was very lucky,i have been concentrating on some of the secondary calibres,and doing a bit of research.
    This particular watch turned up,a couple of days after i had seen the cat` Illustration,so as i say,very lucky.
    Regards,
    Russ.
