    Hi, loved your review and agree about the Vostok Amphibia. It sure does have a “cool factor”. I have one question though, I bought mine from an ebay store that sells all Vostok models, it’s an automatic, and it has Russian writing on the back, yours has English writing on the back. My box was also different, a plastic box, with Russian instructions and all inside. Why does your have an English back?

    I’m not sure except to say that Vostok has almost as many case back designs as they have face designs. My suspicion is that the language on the case back is a function of the intended market (Western vs Eastern Europe) and the date of manufacture (pre-wall and shortly thereafter-all in Russian, post-wall to date-other language choices). This page will give you an idea of the variety of case backs available. I don’t see mine listed but there is another one there that is in English as well.
