Rob Apsel on “Vostok Amphibia: Legendary Soviet Technology”

The presentation includes the history of Vostok,  and the Amphibia, the official Soviet Navy Diver watch. The presentation focuses on the brilliant designers who managed to build a watch with greater water resistance than the Rolex Submariner or the Blancpain 50 Fathoms for a tiny fraction of the price. And they did it without having money, adequate machinery, or advanced technology.
