The ‘Radio Room’ dial:
 
The history of the ‘Radio Room’ dial is fascinating, dating back to the sinking of the liner ‘Titanic’ after hitting an iceberg.
International rules for radio communications were practically non-existant in 1912, and it is believed that due to so much radio chatter that night, some of the Titanic’s distress calls were either not heard, or heard too late.
Months after the disaster, the ‘Radio Room Act’ was passed, leading to specific periods of time when radio room operators must listen for distress calls, and make no unrelated transmissions.
These periods were to last 3 minutes, 4 times per hour. These periods are depicted on the dial by the red ‘pie slices’.
 
 
 
A Brief History.
 
In 1942  the Moscow Watch Company evacuated to its current home in Chistopol City. The Vostok name was adopted in the 1960s, and the Amphibia arrived in 1968. It is driven by the 31 jewel Vostok 2416b automatic movement. It has been described as being “tougher than Russian steak.” It has a power reserve of over 30 hours. Water resistance is 0m, achieved by superb design of the glass, which compresses and flexes as the pressure increases.  At higher pressure, the case back is also pressed tighter against the seal, increasing water resistance as the watch is submerged to greater depth.
Vostok watches have even travelled into space, on the wrists of Soviet Cosmonauts J W Romanenko and Georgi Grechko.

Frequently asked questions:

Q: The crown and winding stem seem loose when I change the time/wind the watch, is this normal?

A: –YES–. On Vostok Amphibia/Komandirskie models, the crown and winding stem are connected by a ball and socket type fitting. This is an normal design feature that reduces lateral pressure on the stem should you decide to wind or change the time whilst the watch is on your wrist. This feature is also used on some models of high end watches by Omega and Patek Philipe

Q: Does the bezel turn smoothly or with clicks?

A: Vostok bezels rotate smoothly.

Q: Does changing the bezel affect the water resistance?

A: –No– the bezel is an external cosmetic part and plays no part in the water resistance.

Q: How do I change the date?

A: There is no quick change facility, rotate time until desired date is reached. Always ensure crown is screwed back firmly after winding/setting.

Q: I have another question?

A: Please don’t hesitate to send me a message, I will get back to you as soon as possible.
