Time Visions Comments

Vostok-Europe enthusiasts having been waiting patiently for the launch of their latest design...the Energia Rocket. After closely examining our newly arrived stock of this watch, we think collectors will feel it has been worth the wait! This impressively designed timepiece begins with a round, bronze case complete with a unidirectional rotating bezel. Featured at the 12:00 position of the bezel is a constantly glowing Tritium tube encased in a sapphire crystal. We are not sure that we have ever seen another timepiece offering this design element for the "pip". A case-coordinating screw-down crown rests along the right side of the case. The dark copper-brown dial offers a date aperture at 6:00 with a total of 17 Tritium tubes placed at the hour markers and the hands, including the second hand. Double tubes are placed on the hour hand and the 12:00 dial position. A Helium Release Valve is present on the left side of the case. The straps are attached to the case lugs using an articulating rod which allows the band to wrap comfortably around virtually any wrist size. This large, 49-mm timepiece ships with a genuine brown leather strap (with contrast stitching) and includes an interchangeable brown silicone rubber strap, both securing at the wrist with a buckle clasp. Vostok-Europe has included a custom VE screwdriver which is used to interchange the two straps. The watch with either strap is 10-1/2 inches in length and will fit wrist sizes up to 9-1/8 inches. The exhibition case back reveals the inner workings of the Seiko (SII) NH35A mechanical automatic movement with custom decorated Vostok-Europe rotor. This is a numbered, Limited Edition watch with 3,000 made for the world.

The newly designed, extra-large black Vostok-Europe dry box contains the instruction manual plus paperwork for the 2-year manufacturer's warranty. Also included is the extra black silicone strap and a custom Vostok-Europe screwdriver that allows for easy exchange of the 2 straps. This dry box can be reconfigured by removing and reinstalling all of the foam inserts into a box that will hold up to 4 watches and 4 extra sets of straps. We've included our original photos and a video of the model we are selling. If you have ANY questions regarding this watch, please drop us an email for a quick response.

About Tritium Tubes

The vast majority of watches that offer a nighttime glow use a type of chemical coating that absorbs energy during periods when it is exposed to natural or artificial lighting. It then emits this energy in the form of a glow which is visible in dark environments. The only problem with this method of illumination is that the length of the glow is proportional to the amount of time the watch has been exposed to a light source. If you put this type of watch in a dresser drawer for several hours, there will generally be no "charge" remaining, and there is no visible glow. Tritium tubes take watch illumination to the next level. Tritium tubes are glass tubes that are filled with tritium gas and sealed by a laser. This gas then reacts with a coating on the inside of the glass tube to produce a constant glow. This glow requires no "charging" by any external light source. If you put a tritium tube watch in a desk drawer for 6 months, the moment you take it out, it is glowing. Tritium tubes, which are sometimes referred to as "gaseous tritium light sources" (GTLS), are produced by a single company, mb microtek of Switzerland. They add considerable cost to the price of any watch, but if you are a fan of great watch "lume" patterns, there simply is no substitute.

About Bronze Case Watches

This watch is manufactured in genuine bronze. Bronze is a highly machinable copper alloy that ensures the highest quality standards of case construction in your new Vostok-Europe watch. As copper and tin are key components of this alloy's construction, the final composite metal is subject to oxidation. As such, these watches will develop a "patina." This patina can produce a variety of colors on the metal surface and, in so doing, make each bronze Vostok-Europe piece a unique item with distinct case colorization that will be the personal reflection of the wearer. However, should you prefer the absence of a patina on your watch, the case can be polished with any professional bronze polishing paste. We do not recommend doing so, but it is an option. Our photos represent the "new" look of the watch for your review and consideration. You should assume that by the time you receive your watch, the patina process will already be underway.

About Vostok-Europe 

Based in Vilnius, Lithuania, Vostok-Europe fuses two of the most exciting elements in the watch industry today: a great story for each model and construction designed for the most extreme activities. With watches tested in the Dakar Rally, at the bottom of the world, to the edge of the atmosphere and beyond, Vostok-Europe truly is for going to extremes. Couple this with each watch being inspired by a Russian achievement in engineering or exploration, and Vostok-Europe watches just don't tell time, they tell a story. Every Vostok-Europe timepiece is constructed and built to withstand the most rigorous conditions, from deep diving to space explorations; many use the constant illumination technology of tritium tubes; and all are Built for Going to Extremes!
