  1. Hi Buuk. What you have there is an early 90s Vostok Komandirskie with a KGB dial. The case is chrome plated brass and it'll have a the classic Vostok 2414A movement. It's not worth much but it's a real classic and there's a good chance it'll go on forever!
  2. £600?? Yowsers! Where is it on the website?
  3. I think the point Daveyboyz was trying to make is that he thought your watch was probably a fake. Unfortunately, it definitely is a fake, and a pretty poor one at that.
  4. Have you got a link/database of all these direct replacements you could share with us please Roy?
  5. I can only suggest keeping an eye on eBay, Gumtree and your local pawn shops/cash converters. Good luck and I hope you recover it.
  6. Not really, but there's a lot more demand for things that kill people so I'm doing alright.
  7. He's never been that great at replying to emails. Try his Poljot24 facebook page - he was active a couple of days ago there.
  8. Armourer. More often than not I wear my Breitling Aerospace to work.
  9. They have more sales than DFS...
  10. Go straight to Meranom and get them even cheaper.
  11. Keep an eye on some of the other forum sales sections with a search engine such as watchrecon: Good luck in your hunt!
  12. I will be doing it but I have to wait until my last 2 years of service so the Queen pays
  13. Nice collection. I just have the one but it is bloody nice.
  14. Plenty of Amphibias with dates out there. As Martin has already said, the Amphibia is stainless steel as opposed to the chrome plated brass case of the Komandirskie which does tend to pit after a while. Amphibia all the way - put a WTB on here for a cheap 2nd hand one and I'm sure you'll get plenty of offers.
  15. Great watch but we need some pictures! It should wind in either direction.
  16. Wow - Banks Lyon isn't cheap! I guarantee that Alpina will be for sale somewhere at some point for less than half that price. Keep an eye on Jomashop and Gemnation - they often have Alpina sales with big discounts.
  17. Well I'm tempted by the 1982 Rolex Submariner for £2500 but the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch for a grand is also on my radar.
  18. Not cheap but Bergeon all the way for me. You're looking at £40+ for a pack of 5.
  19. I owned the Alpina below and jolly nice it was too - the quality was exceptional. However don't even think about paying anywhere near RRP on any Alpina. They appear in sales a lot and massive discounts are available. The one below has an RRP of £2500 (3000 CHF on the website you've linked to). I paid £750 brand new from a dealer...
  20. Sorry chaps, but I have to disagree with the above statements. If it's fake it only belongs in one place - the bin. None of this "wear it and enjoy it" stuff!
  21. Has the crown and stem fallen out of this one yet? The stem retaining screw seems to be missing!
  22. Nothing is sacred.
  23. Unfortunately there is a massive rash of fake "NOS" Tissot, Mido, Titoni, Oris and more flooding eBay right now and the vast majority seem to feature the easily available FHF 96 movement. I can't say for sure if Oris ever used that movement (I doubt it though) but I honestly think there's a very good chance yours may well be fake.
