Original dial Radio Room. Vostok Watch Makers, Inc. (Russian: ; literally meaning “East”) is a Russian watchmaker based in Chistopol, Tatarstan, Russia. The company produces mainly rugged military and. It also makes clocks and watch movements for other watch brands. The Vostok Watch makers company was founded in 1942 when one of the Moscow watch-making plants of the First Moscow Watch Factory was evacuated to Chistopol, a small town located on the Kama River in Tatarstan. Only defence equipment was produced during the war years, but as soon as the war was over the company started making mechanical wrist watches. However, the company did not begin using the “Vostok” brand name until the 1960s. Presumably, the “Vostok” brand was named after the Vostok space programme, as were some other soviet watch brands, namely Poljot and Raketa. The Vostok diving watch Amphibia. The company was appointed an official supplier of watches for the Ministry of Defence of the Soviet Union in 1965. This year also marks the creation of the well known Komandirskie (“Commander’s”) watch.

By 1980, Vostok Watch Makers was producing 4.5 million timepieces per year. Today, these models have become sought-after collectibles.
