Vostok-Europe Anchar Diver Watch NH25A / 5104144

The world’s fastest submarine, the Russian k-162 “Anchar”, reached a world record speed of 44,7 knots (82.8 km/h) during test trials in the 1970s. Built to be a super – fast attack sub, the titanium hulled Anchar carried the Nato distinction of “Papa” class. Regarded as the predecessan to the more widely known “Alpha” class, the Anchar served the Russian navy at the height of the Cold War and holds speed records thrvough to today.

Designed as the first Vostok-Europe timepieces for deep diving, the new Anchar line of watches reflect the spirit of their namesake. Every detail of the watch construction was built to correspond to special ISO 2281 standards for diver’s watches. The first edition of Anchar watches was successfully tested by officers of NATO Underwater Demolition Units and scientists of the Greek Institute of Marine Archeology.

The best visibility of the watch dial and hands in real conditions of deep diving is provided by the following features: In order to provide maximum readability of the watch at depth, 16 tritium tubes were incorporated. To best distinguish between the indexes on the dial, those at the 12,3,6 and 9 o’clock positions are in yellow and all other indexes are green. To provide constant indication that the watch is running, the end point of second hand is filled by SuperLuminova powder.

The unidirectional rotating bezel incorporates traditional divers scale to provide set time of diving. The starting point is marked by a dot SuperLuminova.
