    Nice! I think the Conker is a very nice color, and black thread will be fine (think of moo's Narragansett bag).and will compliment the face. That's a great watch you have. Yes, Richard is a very good communicator. Definitely post pics of the watch on the Toshi.

    Did you order a deployant from Bob Davis? He sells the Bergeon spring-bar tool for a good price.

    I got the Bergeon spring-bar tool from Otto Frei actually. And I have yet to do the deployant yet... Not sure if I want to do a deployant or just stick with the strap--may just get another strap and put the deployant on that one :).

    A few users on here talking about the price of watches these days.

    I have found that Vostok watches are reasonably priced and a decent alternative to spending so much money. Since the fall of the Soviet Union the company has really come out with some nice stuff.

    If you're talking about Vostok Europe, I believe the movements are Russian but the watches are actually built in Lithuania. I actually have the VE Gaz-14 GMT, its a pretty watch (MASSIVE on the wrist compared to what I normally wear), but for some reason the hour hand slipped and is now always 30 mins behind the actual time. I took it to a local shop and they couldnt figure out how to get to the face to fix it, so until I find some place that can fix it I don't wear it much anymore.

    They are different companies.Vostok Europe is owned by the Koliz Company. The real Vostok company supplies internal parts to the Koliz Company to make Vostok Europe watches.

    Grin. Not bad for an iPhone pic snapped on the way out the door, ehhh? The secret handshake wasn't intentional, but when I noticed it I thought it was a nice touch too. :cool:

    It's an 88, was beyond thrilled when I opened the box, truly had no idea she was getting it for me.
