Vostok Amphibia Dive Watch
‘Russian industrial design is often categorized as brutally simple, prioritizing economy and reliability over eye pleasing aesthetics (Mikhail Kalashnikov’s infamous guns are a case in point), and the Amphibia certainly embodies this tradition. You can’t help but notice the simplicity of this watch.’ – Hodinkee
The Amphibia has a long and storied history not often told unless you’ve gone searching for it. The story begins in 1967 when two Russian watch designers were tasked with making a 200M dive watch using far less sophisticated watch making tools than the Swiss. They succeeded happily and the Vostok Amphibia entered service from then until today.
This Vostok Amphibia is the usual fare around case and movement but our Russian designers did like to take a bit of artistic license when it came to their dials. Featuring a Russian battleship encircled by a Soviet coat of arms it is a nice accoutrement to an otherwise focused tool watch.
