Russian watches VOSTOK Komandirskie "VDV" Amphibian (420288)
"The first Amfibia watches were made in the USSR in 1967 at "Vostok" Chistopolsky chasovoi zavod, Rusko, which became a landmark subject of that era. Professional sailors, divers and submariners chose Amfibia watches for their simplicity and reliability. Trouble-free operation at a depth of 200 m in conditions of significant temperature fluctuations, in any aggressive environment — the mechanical watch of Amfibia withstood extreme overloads and impacts. These were the requirements.
By the way, the military Amfibia watches modification was specially produced by the USSR Navy order and the tests were carried out during the naval exercises in the North Sea. The submarine lay at the bottom at a depth of 120-130 meters while simulating an accident. The divers group, who took part in the rescue of people, was equipped with new Amfibia watches. The tests and exercises were successfully completed.
In 1975, Amfibia watches traveled to space on Soyuz-17 and Salyut-4 stations.
Amfibia watches were also tested in less exotic, but no less visual ways. They were driven by heavy trucks, they were tapped with a hammer, but Amfibia watches continued to show the exact time. Amfibia watches accuracy is largely due to Vostok mechanism while the reliability to the anti-shock device of the balance unit - to the mechanical watches heart
