If you are going to buy a Russian watch, it's generally a good idea to purchase it from an official, authorized seller. Manufacturers may not honor warranties on watches purchased from unauthorized sellers.

Below is a list of online stores where you can buy a Russian watch. Russian Watch Guide does not endorse these sites -- this list is strictly informational.

eBay Sellers

Ebay is probably the most popular place to buy a Russian watch and that's where you usually find the best prices, especially if you are looking for Vostok watches. Many of the major retailers sell on eBay but there are also independent sellers of varying reputation. The trick is to know who is a good seller and who isn't. For this purpose we have prepared these tips for buying a Russian watch on eBay.
