Vintage Vostok Russian Submarine Clock – Original Paint
£400.00 (inc VAT)
Vintage clockwork Russian submarine clock manufactured by Vostok in the 1980s. Just this one in stock, featuring the original fawn paint and dated February 1995.
These are beautifully designed, iconic collectible timepieces that have all but disappeared from circulation. The red Soviet star sits at the 12 o’clock mark, beneath which is Vostok’s submarine-at-sea emblem including the word ‘Komandirskie’, which is Vostok’s trademark. The curly B beneath the spindle is a Russian V, which stands for Vostok.
The hour and minute hands are original and painted black; the colour of the longer seconds hand matches the red of the Soviet star.
The clock is wound by the clockwork key, supplied, inserted above the anchor icon.
The clock has a 12-jewel movement and runs for seven days on a full wind (be careful not to over-wind).
The clock is opened using the same key that winds it, given a quarter-turn of the key in the hole in the side, alongside the number 3. This accesses the hands and the winding hole.
Each Vostok Soviet submarine clock weighs 2 Kg with a diameter of 21 cm and a depth of 7.5 cm. The original clockwork mechanism and key are in place and the clock is fully working.
