Hi guys, just dropped another review Video. The legendary watch company with a rather uncommon 24 hour dial.
Hope you guys enjoy it!

Watched your video. I find it very informative as you describe and show the wobbly crown and show the surprisingly bright lume. I would have sent back my watch if the crown wobbled like that.  How long have you owned this piece? From your video, I gather that for the price of USD58; it is a fun watch to try out and have. But would you recommend that collectors go out and purchase this piece or a piece from this brand? Also how is the water resistance like for this piece?
Your ONLY job in this world is to make sure that you are happy

Hey, appreciate you watching! I have had it for about 2 months now so for really long term durability I can't say for certain BUT Vostok is known for its ruggednesslah. Oh if you have the cash to spare I would recommend it cuz there's a tonne of different designs that I think surely there is one for everyone. 10 year service interval makes it robust as well. It has 200m water resistance so definitely no worries there. One thing that I didn't mention in the review: in hand, it feels very substantial for sure. Solid chunk of metal. If you hate rattly hair pulling bracelets, better go for other strap options.

The watch has a nice clean look to it with high contrast on the dial. I read on watch groups on Facebook of people complaining of the crown from a model under this brand rusting and falling off within short periods of time. I wonder if this is isolated or a regular occurrence with this brand. Do let us know of your experiences with this watch in a few months.

That's interesting. Will definitely let everyone know on how it holds up (especially if it fails).
