The “Vostok” company story starts back in 1942. When one of the Moscow watch-making plants was evacuated from Moscow to a little town located on The Kama River. Defense equipment was the only company output during war years, but as soon as the war was over, the “Vostok” company started making mechanical wrist watches – its main production item ever since.

Yet the company never backed away completely from its military past – the company was appointed an official supplier of watches for the Defense Department of the Soviet Union in 1965. This year marks the creation of the world-famous “Komandirskie” (“Commander”) watch. Military watch grew very popular, mainly due to high precision, excessive reliability and durability. The appearance of the watch has functional and clear-cut design.
