1 in stock
Valentina Tereshkova Titanium Automatic Vostok Amphibia Soviet Watch – Working.
This beautifully rare Vostok was made to commemorate Valentina Tereshikova the first women in space. You will see other models of this circulating, but I doubt with the titanium case and automatic movement, making it so rare!
Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova is an engineer, member of the Russian State Duma, and former Soviet cosmonaut. She is known for being the first and youngest woman in space, having flown a solo mission on the Vostok 6 on 16 June 1963.
The automatic movement with the gentlest of flicks, rotates multiple times exuding quality. With a large 42mm Titanium case, rotating bezel, screw down crown and seals in the back this is a high quality amphibian watch. (Before diving or using under water we would recommend this be properly sealed). Even the hands still glow!
This is truly a real Collectors piece and a once in a lifetime opportunity to add this to your collection!
