Every Vostok watch is a numbered limited edition, made with movements of the highest quality. However this limited edition Gents Arktika watch is particularly special because of its rarity, and we are selling it exclusively on Ideal World to celebrate our birthday! These watches are a rare collector’s item and you will only ever find them second hand. Not only that, but they have an alluring story behind them…
Vostok crafted these remarkable pieces back in 2007 and you cannot get hold of them new anywhere else, making them a UK exclusive! However, this very last box of watches was found hidden in the Vostok warehouse when they were relocation earlier this year! Vostok kindly saved the last box just for Ideal World’s 16th birthday! This exciting discovery has been kept tightly under wraps, and now we can finally reveal our uncovered treasure. So get yourself or your loved one a piece of rare history and become part of the story.

The Arktika Vostok-Europe watch is inspired by the first surface ship to ever reach the North Pole in 1975. All of the elements of the watch are nautical in design, from the actual rivets on the case side to the anchor on the base of the second hand. The overall case design is reminiscent of the massive pates on the ship’s hull.
The Arktika Vostok-Europe watch features a commanding and powerful design! The limited edition Arktika timepiece begins with a rounded rectangular rose-tone case crafted from surgical grade 316L stainless steel. Rivets adorn the case sides for an industrial look. It has an exhibition case back and push/pull crown completing the design. Beneath the protective mineral crystal, the rounded rectangular silver-tone dial features white arrow shaped index markers at all hour positions except 12:00 and 6:00. It also includes a Russian 2432 Vostok Automatic movement with 32 jewels drives the luminous hour, minute and seconds hands. It features a 24 hour window extends from 10:00 and 2:00, date window appears near 6:00 and day/night indicator shows between 4:00 and 8:00.
