Vostok 31 Jewel Automatic Watch
Submarine Captain’s Edition
THE VOSTOK WATCH STORY
The Vostok Watch story started in 1942 when one of the Moscow watch-making plants was evacuated from Moscow to a little town located on the Kama River called CHISTOPOL. Defence equipment was the only company output during war years, but as soon as the war was over it started making mechanical wrist watches - its main production item ever since.
The company was appointed an official supplier of watches for the Defence Department of the Soviet Union in 1965. This year marks the creation of the world-famous “Komandirskie” “Commander” watch.
Military watches grew very popular over the years due to their high precision, excellent reliability and durability. The appearance of the watches and the extensive historical links with the Soviet Military brings them great appeal to collectors and one off purchasers alike. The experience gained through development of the army watches was the foundation of Vostok’s next special watch the “Amphibian”. This impressive timepiece in a stainless-steel case can endure depths of 2000 meters and have been tested at these depths, so the guarantee of 200m waterproof is pretty conservative. Success of the professional watches determined the company’s present philosophy, to create mechanical watches that give precise timekeeping at any temperature, in any environment whilst maintaining high survivability rates.
This philosophy is now time-proven and a vast multitude of people both in Russia and abroad buy “Vostok” watches and their reputation grows throughout the world.
HISTORY OF THIS WATCH
This Automatic ‘Naval Submarine’ model has two tone grey & black dial with black hands and polished numbered chrome bezel & case. The submarine depicted is believed to be an early diesel electric though the picture seems very stylised. This watch varies from the other Naval Submarine models in that it has an inscription beneath the Sub picture. In Russian the inscription says, ‘Kaptain Podvodnoy Lodkey’ which in English means ‘Captain of the Submarine’, a very interesting edition.
At its peak in 1980, the Soviet submarine force numbered 480 boats, including 71 fast attacks and 94 cruise and ballistic missile submarines. Because the names of individual Soviet submarines are seldom known abroad, the usual practice is to refer to them only as a member of a submarine class. The most widely known class names are those assigned as code names by NATO, such as Alfa, Charlie, and Kilo.
The standard Navy emblem of the Anchor is shown in the six o’clock position beneath the seaborne submarine finishing off a wonderful timepiece designed and manufactured especially for Russian Military personnel. These automatic wind watches, uncompromising in design, strength and durability have kept the Military on time for those important events that people never hear about!
