Rare Early 1st Generation Vostok Amphibia Swing Lugs cai;2209

Just received these Rare early 1st Generation Vostok Amphibia Swing Lugs.

Thank you Slava.

Had been watching these for awhile. Could not understand why they were so reasonably priced.
They are not perfect, quite considerable patina, they would have been manufactured early 70`s. But once again, just adds to their charm. They have the curious early latin case backs, Vostok did do an early type of Cyrillic case back. In my opinion the Latin ones are rarer.

Just a word on dials. These early Amphibia`s, often get redialed. The white dial is original. I have an open mind about the black.

Great additions to the collection.
