In August 2003, Koliz Vostok was founded in Vilnius, Lithuania. Although watchmaking had never been part of the country's local industry, the new company set itself the goal of creating a collection of Vostok Europe ("VE") watches. In hindsight, it is fair to say that the company achieved much more. Now, celebrating the brand's 20th anniversary, the manufacturer is launching an exceptional limited edition model of the Vostok Europe Atomic Age Automatic VE 20th Anniversary SET Limited Edition watch.
Twenty years ago, Vostok Europe desired to create a collection of watches that would combine two things — the remarkable history of each model and a design tailored to extreme sports. In the following years, the brand produced dozens of different timepieces with a variety of features and designs. What remains the same is that 100% of Vostok Europe watches are designed, engineered, assembled, and tested at the company's headquarters in Vilnius, Lithuania.
In September, the manufacturer unveiled a watch to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the VE brand. The model brings together three elements that haven't had the chance to come together in one product before. We're talking about a complex Japanese automatic movement, tritium tubes imported from Switzerland, and a dial crafted from authentic meteorite from outer space. By blending these three distinct elements, the Vostok Europe watch has firmly positioned itself within the realm of luxury timepieces. The intricate movement, useful functions, the austerity of the meteorite, and the highly limited number of models make this watch extremely exclusive.
Vostok Europe Atomic Age Automatic VE 20th Anniversary SET Limited Edition YN84-640E726 is limited to only 200 pieces. It comes from the Atomic Age collection, which offers models created as a tribute to the pioneers and scientists who developed atomic energy. The series is a reference to physics and the development of nuclear technology as a science, as well as the development of energy for peaceful purposes. The watches in this series are only available in limited editions, making them extremely exceptional.
The anniversary edition of the Vostok watch comes with a rugged 48 mm wide and 17 mm thick case in a grey colour, crafted from PVD-coated stainless steel. It features a unique watch face made of real meteorite. The dial is completed with an open-heart window through which the watch movement can be seen. In addition, the dial features a sub-dial for 24-hour time and a power reserve indicator. The hands and indices are treated with tritium tubes, and the markers on the outer ring of the dial are coated with Super-LumiNova. The watch is protected by curved, hardened K1 mineral glass.
Vostok Europe Atomic Age Automatic VE 20th Anniversary SET Limited EditionYN84-640E726 features a screw-down caseback and screw-down crown made of 316L stainless steel. With a water resistance rating of 20 ATM, the watch is designed to accompany you on your underwater adventures, making swimming and diving a breeze.
The watch is completed by a 316L stainless steel bracelet with a grey PVD coating. The anniversary set also comes with a black and red silicone strap and a leather strap with an alligator leather texture. That’s why you can easily match the watch to any situation, mood, or style.
The Japanese Epson YN84 automatic movement with 22 jewels and a 40-hour power reserve ensures precise operation.
The set is beautifully packaged in a luxurious black lacquered wooden box. The two-tiered interior of the box is lined with black velvet and adorned with the special anniversary logo. In addition to this, the set also includes a strap replacement tool, a document confirming the individual number of the watch, a certificate of authenticity for the meteorite inclusion issued by the Center for Physical Sciences and Technology, and the certification of a test confirming that the watch boasts a water resistance of 20 bars.
