Vostok (Russian: Восток, meaning East*).The Vostok 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.
During World War 2, only defense equipment was produced, but as soon as the war was over the company started making mechanical wrist watches. However, the Company did not begin using the "Vostok" name brand until the 1980s. *Presumably the "Vostok" brand was named after the Vostok space programme (as some others soviet watch brands, which were named to after topics of Space in the 1960s - Poljot and Raketa).
The watch was released in the 1980's.
