Excited to get my first ever prototype for my collection from Vostok-Europe. It's the bronze Energia watch with the brown dial. It's not that easy to see, but in this picture there is the number 000/999 on the caseback.
You can see our full collection of Energia watches from Vostok-Europe here. Though the prototype is NOT for sale. (Sorry!)
For those of you who do not know how watches are built, a company always start with a set of handmade prototypes. These are then inspected for any changes that may beed to be made before the full run is produced. This is the first prototype from Vostok-Europe I have ever gotten for my personal collection and I have to say it's WAY cool to have.
I have been wearing this Energia watch for about two weeks now and I love it. This may be my favorite Vostok-Europe so far (with the Lunokhod 2 being a close second. It is so comfortable. The tritium tubes sparkle in this one due to the v shaped reflectors. The extra thick leather strap is soft and had no break in period. Here are some more pics... I will post more about the experience as I wear the watch.
