The watch got me drooling. The cal. 135 is on my grail list. Maybe someday I'll get lucky, who knows...

The author of the article makes one rather annoying mistake. No, the Wostok does not copy the entire layout of the movement. It is designed around a very large balance, just as the Zenith, so they did take that idea from Zenith, but th rest is a completely different design, with a completely differently arranged gear train, and the bridges not even close to the ones of the Zenith.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
