I wore a Vostok watch completely out a few years ago. Being a ham radio operator, I was totally enamored with a former Soviet radio room WATCH, with all four silent periods marked on the face. I originally bought it for about $35, but the prices really went up since then, so now I wear a Garmin Vivosmart HR+. Oh well. Vostok make some good stuff. Dunno about any other Russian brands.
