A little bit of info and history of Vostok...

Not bad for a 200m WR fishing watch for only around $115 expenditure.
I've since fitted it with various straps and I think it's quite versatile...

I was looking at the Vostok. How heavy does it feel on the wrist? Dig the old school look.

I have 2 watches.

An Ironman for diving, fishing, research.
A Roamer for everything else.

The Ironman has been the most dependable watch I've had in 20 years of research. I could give a shit about analog. I need data down to the second and be able to rapidly call out times for sampling. This does it.
