Picked up this NOS Vostok

Not really a full review this time. This one is functionally the same as the earlier reviewed Komandirskie. Same 2414A handwound 17 jewel movement. Basic design is very similar as well. This one is gold colored though. I don't know if it is brass or some other sort of plating that is used but the effect is visually striking. This particluar one is NOS (new old stock). Its dial has CCCP written on it but the included papers indicate a 1992 manufacture date. Probably was assembled from old, pre-collapse Soviet stock. Arrived in virtually mint condition. Not bad for $21.50. I think the bund strap works well with it.
