Yeah, its a really nice watch on the wrist. The most comfortable big diver I have ever worn. A great case and highly readable dial.

The date starts to change at 8:30?? Russian watches should just ditch the date and they might not be half bad.

I like the looks, but the second hand is choppy as hell and the finish looks a little cheap.

I think they use the Seiko movement in this one.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Very nice, Beds...I especially like it on the NATO strap. How is it for accuracy? Does the bezel work smoothly? I ask this latter question because I've come close to buying a Rooshin watch (though not this particular brand) from a local jeweler, and the bezel was a booger, so I opted to pass...

It had a low-end Seiko calibre that worked well...though I'm not a movement timing kind of guy. The second hand wasn't choppy...though it wasn't ETA smooth either. The bezel and crown were really good. The finish on the hands was basic. Not a bad watch at all.

But look at the date window in Kois post. They even managed to screw up a Seiko date mechanism. Rushians hayte dates!!

Obviously, Foggy, you don't appreciate the myriad contributions Lithuania has made to mankind...surely you've heard of the Lithugraph process for replicating anything from everyday copies of notes and documents to the ultimate producer of copied art...? Some Lithugraphs are worth a ton of cash...Jeebus... Image

Not only are dates the equivalent of the Ars Diaboli to them, they have difficulty with even the most basic observations as well - thus the nearly ubiquitous addition (regrettably not in this case) of those ridiculous day/night indicators.
