    I have this Vostok Europe TU-144:

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, it has effectively died. It is an automatic; but no longer will keep anything approaching good time. Took it into my watchmaker; a guy who really is very good. He opened it; tried to nudge it; no dice. He declined to do more than that; said the movement was just too strange. Someday I'm thinking I might just have him salvage the case and the bracelet by replacing the movement and most likely the face...

    Although I'd like to keep the face if I can!

    L'chaim!

    If you can retrofit a modern Seiko or Citizen movement you'd have a reliable and attractive watch!

    My thoughts exactly. Have not yet discussed with my watchmaker. Don't have budget to do it right now... :-(
