Dispatches from Poland

Introducing a distinctive piece from our collection: the Vostok "Operation Desert Shield" Automatic Dive Watch. This unique timepiece commemorates the historic Operation Desert Shield, a significant military operation initiated by the United States and coalition forces in response to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990. The operation was a precursor to the Gulf War, aiming to protect Saudi Arabia and deter further aggression by Iraqi forces.

This vintage Vremir watch features a 40 mm stainless steel case designed for durability and a rugged aesthetic. The white dial is adorned with the Operation Desert Shield emblem, showcasing the American flag, a palm tree, and crossed swords, symbolizing the coalition's mission and unity. The black Arabic numerals and luminous hands provide excellent readability, complemented by a date window at the 3 o'clock position.

The watch is equipped with a robust automatic movement, featuring 21 jewels for enhanced precision and longevity. The water resistance is rated at 100 meters, making it suitable for various water activities.

The bi-directional rotating bezel adds functionality and a classic dive watch design. The watch is completed with a comfortable and durable NATO strap, perfect for both casual and active wear.

This vintage Vremir "Operation Desert Shield" watch is not only a reliable timepiece but also a piece of history, honoring a pivotal moment in modern military history. The inclusion of the unique reference number 003328 on the case back further assures its authenticity and originality. Whether you are a collector or an enthusiast of military memorabilia, this watch is a remarkable addition to any collection, offering both historical significance and timeless design.
