By the mid-80s Vostok developed a double crown divers’ watch with the same compressor principles as their production Amphibia. Baptized with the “Compressor” nickname and gaining legendary status among collectors, only a prototype run was manufactured with just about 20 pieces known in the wild today.
Coming 2020, Vostok (through a special project managed by Dmitry Buyalov, coordinated by John Sullivan and with Tiago do Vale in design duty) are reissuing the “Compressor” in a limited 400 pieces run, following closely the original watch with contemporary manufacturing technologies, tolerances and standards.
