The first Amphibia watches were made in 1967 in the Chistopol watch factory «Vostok» by order of the Soviet Navy and became a landmark timepiece of that time.

Professional sailors, divers and submariners chose Amphibia watches for their simplicity and reliability.

The mechanical Amphibia watches meet stringent requirements in aggressive environments, ensuring trouble-free operation at depths of up to 200 meters with significant temperature changes, extreme overloads and hits. The Amphibia was developed alongside foreign analogues, incorporating patent-pending solutions including a new seal design that has enhanced the production process. 

The watches were tested during naval exercises on the North Sea, imitating extreme scenarios where a submarine descended to the sea floor to a depth of 120-130 meters. A team of divers taking part in the rescue scenario were equipped with new Amphibia watches.  The Amphibia passed all naval exercises and watch tests, and in 1975, Amphibia watches visited space on the Soyuz-17 and Salyut-4 stations.

Amphibia watches have also been tested in less exotic, but no less spectacular ways. They have been hit with hammers, moved by heavy vehicles, thrown from great heights, and following each test, continued to work.

Inspired by old sketches and drawings, Vostok Watch Makers Inc. presents a special series of watches dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the first Amphibia watches and to factory's 75th anniversary.

The watches are equipped with a 24 caliber Vostok 2415 movement with an anti-shock device within the balance node. During production each movement passes double assembly and testing controls. The reliable over-sized watch case can survive diving to a depth of 200 meters, and is made of bronze in the form of a «barrel» like its predecessor.

The original elements of the Amphibia watch, such as the crown, the back cover with the nut, the historical hands and the dial indexes are also painstakingly preserved.

Another feature of the watch is the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, while the hands and indexes are coated with a Super-LumiNova. The same luminous provides an accurate and visual indication in the dark for the starting point of unidirectional bezel.An unique serial number is engraved on the back of each watch.

Buying an Amphibia watch, you become not only the owner of one model from a limited series, but you also acquire a piece of the history of a great country.

We trust that the renewed Amphibia watch with its appearance will convey the spirit of that age and gladden a new generation of fans of outdoor activities on land and water.
