It's here Vostok-Europ Anchar

Post by carlt69 »

Well I hummd and arrrrd over buying it and in the end I'm glad I did. :D
I got it for what I think was a good price :) The quality of it seems very good, with the pvd being of better quality than a couple of other watches that i've owned, the packaging made me smile when I opened it, what with the bright yellow face against all the black.
The fact it comes with a certificate of depth testing was a bonus. This is the first watch I've ever bought to have one! I have so far not been brave enough to use the supplied screw drivers to change the strap, so for now it will stay on the rubber strap which is a good thing as its comfiest strap I now own :D

I doesn't seem to be that big on the wrist to me, the Deep Blue Juggernaut I had felt a lot bigger!

This is my black and yellow scratch itched now time to start saving again, and hopefully it will be a CWL next :-)

Here come the photos, not up to tartine.74 standards mind you :lol:

Certainly an interesting looking piece. Bit big for my liking and not just the diameter, how deep is it? Very yellow though, I like yellow.

Really like that, especially the hour hand. Bit bloody big though, you'll be leaning to the left constantly and wearing a left handed groove in the pavement :D Styling though is really nice and the yellow and black goes together really well.

Is the yellow a metallic finish like the C600IPY or is a flat finish , i know the IPY is hard to get a nice picture showing the metallic finish
its a flat yellow on the dial with more of a metalic look on the bezel :-)

I like the look of those Vostok Europe watches only thing puts me off some of them look like real mosters on the wrist and I just wonder what shelf life they have. I like the look of those Moscow Classic watches also. Nice looking watch you have there though.

Gorgeous piece - very IWC in some details. Would go well with a Giallo Fly Ferrari 458....
