    I'll pass on this one - I'll let someone else have a chance at it.

    Thanks for the offer though.

    < squirrels out of wormhole >
    I'm also new to these parts, but a longtime reader. Got into horology after treating myself to a speedmaster for my wedding.
    I'd very much love to put my hand up for a Raketa or any Russian automatic watch. For some reason the "cccp" element appeals to me :-/ also the thought of wearing a unique discussion point/time piece :)

    So Blanchy90 and hoganj are the two contenders. Vote away folks.


  • Registered Users Posts: 943 ✭✭✭ njburke


    It looks like a coin toss is the fairest way to vote, so that's what I did.
    Blanchy90 wins my vote.

    Keep them coming Kintaro.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,860 ✭✭✭ hitemfrank


    hoganj for my vote.

    Blanchy already has some Russian lovelies so I feel he wouldn't miss not having one more.

    +1 for hoganj for the same reason (hope you don't mind Blanchy)


  • Registered Users Posts: 836 ✭✭✭ Blanchy90


    I don't mind at all. Stumbling in to this thread gave me a kick in the ass to get back rotating my collection


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,585 ✭✭✭✭ Kintarō Hattori


    So a week later hoganj it is. Do you want to pop me your details in a pm chief.


  • Registered Users Posts: 92 ✭✭ hoganj


    Hi Kintarō,
    I've just pm'd you, name your charity etc. Looking for more details on this model of Raketa if anyone knows of any?

    Thanks,
    John

    The looker of the group and probably a watch I'd keep if it had a glass cover but it's perspex. Again it's around 38mm in size. Chip in if you want it and we'll tally the votes in a weeks time.

    Blue face, under 40mm, looks vintage? What's not to like?

    Count me in!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,808 ✭✭✭ Jurgen Klopp


    Oh sacred heart that's beautiful!

    Count me in I've been looking to get my first vintage Vostok for ages and get something proper than my cheap Hugo Boss

    In fact my Casio 2900 is what could be considered my best watch, I know the shame of it :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,739 ✭✭✭✭ Cienciano


    Nice watch. Where is good for vintage Russian, is thre somewhere other than ebay you can browse?

    Vostok is something everyone should have 1 of

    Gonna be getting something similar to this off a friend so am gonna withdraw and leave it to a frank

    Thanks :)

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,860 ✭✭✭ hitemfrank


    I'm assuming this is now dead. It's a shame this thread never really gained traction, it was a nice idea.

    Thanks for trying KH.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,585 ✭✭✭✭ Kintarō Hattori


    It's not yet chief! I just haven't had a chance to follow things up as I had been out of the country for a bit and busy with a few things before that. Let me have a look at it today and see who's in for the watch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,585 ✭✭✭✭ Kintarō Hattori


    Now help me out with this as I can't keep track of what's happened here and I have been a little distracted lately, plus I haven't actually had a look inside the watch box that these ones have been resident in. I don't think we decided a recipient of the Vostok yet did we? If not then the two contenders are:

    hitemfrank
    Blanchy90
    fourmations


    So vote away folks and we'll count the tally in a weeks time.


  • Registered Users Posts: 92 ✭✭ hoganj


    I will vote for Blanchy90 here as he missed out on the watch that I got.

    id like to be included if possible!

    thanks

    EDIT: thanks for adding me!
    its a lovely piece and although im only a watch newbie with a few meagre pieces
    im very much leaning towards vintage watches -
    love the romance and history and what it may have been through

    cheers

    +1 for hitemfrank


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,585 ✭✭✭✭ Kintarō Hattori


    One day to go and we're on a tie.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,739 ✭✭✭✭ Cienciano


    I'll vote for Blanchy90 as he missed out on one earlier.


  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 11,918 Mod ✭✭✭✭ blue5000


    I'll vote for hitemFrank just to keep it interesting ;)

    If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,585 ✭✭✭✭ Kintarō Hattori


    Still on a tie, let's go to sudden death, the next vote claims the prize.

    I'll add my vote to Blanchy90. :)

    Rejoice in the awareness of feeling stupid, for that’s how you end up learning new things. If you’re not aware you’re stupid, you probably are.



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,585 ✭✭✭✭ Kintarō Hattori


    There it is so. Blanchy's the lucky chap. Do you want to fire me across your details and I'll get this off in the post.
