Incoming! Cardi-Vostok Chronoscope Captain Watch made in Russia (or CCCP) Cool

First one is the actual item and second it a rather rough example of the same model, same case and hands.

This is my first non-vintage Russian (more retro-really) and definitely the first Vostok. I'm told that these were the affordable line of European Vostoks. While not really a collector of golden things - this one just happened to pop-up for an extremely affordable price. The totally campy-maritime aesthetic, especially in simulated painted gold, really amuses me - we'll see if I'm similarly amused when it lands. It looks & sounds to be in very good condition with no scratches to lens, bezel or case and comes in original packaging - so drop your anchors...and chronoscopes (?) Rolling on the floor laughing my a.. off


"I was forgetting that it was night. The chronometer soon informed me of that fact;
and in a very short time, refreshed and thankful, we all three fell into a sound sleep
."
