Additionally, this is the first ever Talk About Watches Live REMOTE event! If you are not able to join us live, we will post a replay as quickly as we are able to.

For those who love not only Vostok Europe but the beautiful work they do in bronze, then this steal is for you! This Almaz features a unidirectional bezel 47mm case crafted in maritime grade bronze without patina, which means you will enjoy the natural patina over time. Housed within is the SII NH35 Automatic (24 jewels) with 41 hour power reserve, providing 3 hand with date complication at the 6 position. The dial is a military color concept, protected by hardened K1 mineral crystal with anti-reflective coating (the K1 crystal system provides the shatter resistance of mineral and the scrratch resistance of sapphire in one crystal. It is the optimum crystal for rugged, sports and adventure watches). All lume material is Super Luminova. The finished work is presented on 22mm thick leather strap with complimenting stitching, and tested to 20 ATM. Sold for as much as 629.00 with known discount to 499.00, reserve yours at the best price in the country; just 349.00, shipping included!
This Vostok Europe build is an outstanding example of an eastern European independent concept dress watch, though it’s versatility easily moves into casual dress as well. Modeled after the dash clock found in a 1970’s Russian limo, the 43mm case is crafted in 316L surgical grade steel, and contains a 22 Jewel Seiko Epson power reserve movement, 21,600 VPH with hacking mechanism. The power reserve is in excess of 40 hours and may be tracked by the guage showcased at the 12 position. An unusually thick K1 mineral crystal protects the dial which features raised arabic numerals. All luminous material is Super-Luminova. Presented on fine leather and in your choice of black or rose finish, the completed work is tested to 5 ATM water resistance. MSRP is 499.00, with current market at 399.00. TAW price is just 249.00, shipping included!
The Almaz is one of the more popular timepieces in the Vostok-Europe collection. But, when combined with being done in a patinaed bronze case AND an automatic movement, it takes it to even greater heights of popularity. Now, you are able to secure one (while quantities last) at an immediate $200 discount! The distressed look of the leather strap is a perfect pairing with this watch and each one, over time, will become more and more unique to you personally as the patina continues to develop over time.
The Lunokhod is considered the higher end builds within the Vostok Europe family, and we’ve been handed an exclusive opportunity. Epson YM86 quartz movement delivers 1/30 second chronograph with elapsed time up to 24 hours, among other functions including sound alarm, day, date, day of week, month of year, leap year, all with PERPETUAL CALENDAR direction! The 49mm 316L case is finished in a rich black, includes helium release valve and tested to 30 ATM. The multi-level dial is protected by exceptionally thick hardened K1 mineral crystal (preferred for performance) and features 15 tritium tubes, 13 of which are set standing up in the “candle” orientation. Gorgeous sculpted back as well. Fans of luxury builds, real performance watches, and of complications are all going to love this one!
Welcome to the live streaming page for the current episode of Talk About Watches Live. On Friday, 04/20/18, Tim Temple will be presenting a number of timepieces from Sturmanskie, Vostok-Europe and Croton. Tim's special guest will be Craig Hester. Listed on this page are the products that will be in the show. However, please note that the extremely discounted prices will not be made available until just before the show begins. We do hope that you will join us live for the show. However, if you cannot make it, a replay of the show will be made available here as quickly as we are able to process it.
When we are presented with a good opportunity, we jump on it. When Craig Hester gave us the opportunity to snag the very last of these Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) Vostok-Europe Radio Rooms, we did so immediately! It is a very good looking timepiece with a very interesting backstory (and designed by Craig himself!). And, these are the last of the limited edition run. That means that when this handful that we have are gone, they are gone for good! Lastly, we got them at a heck of a discount when compared to the current asking price. As always, you must act quickly on these to secure yours!
Fans know that the N1 Rocket is one of the classic builds from Vostok Europe. VE hails from Lithuania where each piece is built by a master watchmaker in a boutique facility. This 46mm x 17mm 316L steel build is dramatic on the wrist, especially with this example featuring both the black finish and sharp neon green. The chronograph function is driven by the rock solid Miyota 6S21 quartz movement, with the readout on a very easily read dial beneath a K1 hardened mineral crystal within rotating bezel. All lume is the high end super luminova. The bracelet is all solid link 22mm construction and should fit up to a 9” wrist. The finished work is tested to 20ATM water resistance, equivalent to dive watch standard. This watch is a deal at this price, but it goes further. Our offer includes the 22mm silicon strap in bright green, an accessory usually sold separately. This is a beautiful buy on a great watch; please enjoy!
If you are looking for a big, bold watch that will get attention on the wrist, then the Vostok-Europe Mriya is the watch for you. This is the largest Vostok-Europe ever built at 50 mm, and it’s fitting as it is inspired by the world’s largest aircraft — the Ukrainian Mriya, which translates as Dream. This is a numbered limited edition (of 3,000) and this is the LAST chance you are going to have to pick one up. We got great pricing on these remaining pieces with an extra strap (total of 3 now) and the dive box. If this is for you, you need to act quickly!
