Another interesting old Vostok Amphibia Cosmonaut







Fundamentally the same watch as the previously reviewed Vostok Neptune , the Cosmonaut pictured here arrived new old stock in the original box with paperwork indicating a 1991 manufacture date. This one uses the older 21 jewel version of the 2414b movement. The bracelet is slightly different from the more modern Neptune model and the dial graphic is quite rare but, otherwise, it is a Vostok Amphibia in all meaningful respects.

I paid a bit more than I would have liked for this one but they are becoming quite hard to find and this one makes a fine addition to the other two Cosmonaut models that I have.

Hey Ed,

Nice watch! Where do you find these? On the bay? Or do you know any good online dealers?

Thanks for the pics!

Ebay is the only place I see these. It's always a hit or miss proposition.

Great dial, very unique looking. (It is screaming for a Dave Murphy bezel and blue insert to me!) =)

Thanks for all the great reviews of Vostoks and other brands. (You have me wanting a Seiko Monster now too!) :)

Your site was one of the first I looked at when I got into the Amphibian collecting and it had provided great info (and hooked me up with PMWF.com too)!

Regards,

Ant

That would look good with one of Dave's bezels :)
