Where to get a Vostok serviced?

Dear Comrades,
One of my timepieces is in dire need of some TLC. We're talking about a Vostok from the 60s and before I hand it over to some random Western spy disguised as a watch maker, I wanted see whether one of youse could provide me with an address.

Extremewatches.ch sells this brand. Maybe they can direct you to a reputable watch maker.

Peter Roberts is the best - trained at Wostep in early 70s- and a great watch maker and repairer with massive experience. Lives in UK but regularly comes to Switzerland- so you can arrange collection with him direct.

Thanks Odile, he's the same one whom you've recommended in the Rolex thread. I will drop him a message and see what he's got to say.

Re: Where to get a Vostok serviced?

I'd find any old watch specialist on condition that I can sit and watch them work for a bit. I'd be very curious to see the insides of this commemorative watch being cleaned/fixed.
I'd be thankful if you posted a photo of it...

To you it may be priceless, but the mechanism may not be something super special, so may not require a super watch surgeon.

Certainly, I can do that.
