Symbols on the clock-face:
In the upper part of the black watch face, at the twelve-hour point, there is the Byzantine gold double-headed eagle – the symbol of the ancient Rus and the prototype of the modern state emblem.
In the lower part of the face there is the tricolor National Flag of the Russian Federation.
Above the axis of the hands – trademark “Komandirskie”. Lower the axis – the nameplate of the watch factory “Vostok”.
Under the six-hour mark – the inscription “Made in Russia”.
The symbolism of the Russian double-headed eagle: the eagle itself symbolizes the Russian state, one of the heads is a symbol of the power of the ruler (i.e. a symbol of the secular authority), the other is a symbol of the spiritual power (the power of the church ).
Russian tricolor symbolizes the following: the white stripe – peace, purity, chastity; the blue – faith, loyalty and truth; the red – constancy, energy, strength, courage and blood shed for the Fatherland.
On the back cover (caseback) of stainless steel there is an image of the Russian Federation State Emblem. It is circumferentially surrounded by embossed inscription detached by two stars: “RUSSIA” “WATERPROOF”.
The bracelet is made of genuine leather. The stiffening ribs, stamped on the bracelet, increase its life and make it more comfortable to wear.
Since 1965, this mechanical watch has won recognition and trust due to its high accuracy, surplus stocks of reliability and resistance to environmental stress.
Vostok Komandirskie were designed by Russian engineers for use in extremely harsh environments, where there is often no capacity for competent service of the mechanism. At the core of the watch are a reliable shock resistant mechanism,a dust and waterproof case and a special spherical glass.
