Ed Brandwein947 viewsBorn and raised in NYC. I am a lawyer and a law librarian by trade. Married with two kids, currently living in Queens, NYC.

I've been collecting Russian watches since the late eighties when a newly arrived immigrant sold me a Vostok Komandirskie. I spent the next ten years or so buying one or two more examples where I could find them. Then, of course, ebay came on the scene and the Russian revolution really got going. I have about 30 Russian watches in the rotation these days and that's after thinning the herd a bit over the last few years.

When it comes to Russian watches, there is always some amazing detail to find out about. I guess that is what I like best about collecting Russian watches. Nothing about them ever seems to have been done by chance. There was always some plan in mind, whether it worked out or not. The detective work involved in figuring out what some Russian designer was doing when one thing or another was done never gets old to me.

I will be watching over the Russian board

Here in the US I've noticed that most ppl buy G-Shocks with MSRP under USD $100. All of the following are under USD $100.933 viewsSubmitted by Adam in NYC

I'll interpret what Adam did not explicitly say: these G-Shocks are so inexpensive that people use (or abuse) them and when they are broken, they will be replaced without tears being shed. I remember that during the Swatch high (mid 90ies) many Swiss service men would buy or use a Swatch with exactly that line of thought (Note Reto)
