The Expedition North Pole is one of the most rugged watches in the VE line but also the most affordable. The big, bold dial runs right to the bezel's edge. This model's engine is the Seiko Epson YN55 automatic, so the watch never needs winding if worn daily. The K-1 crystal gives the best of both worlds of sapphire and mineral by being right between them on the hardness scale. This makes this watch's scratch and shatter-resistant crystal excellent for a sports watch like this. The custom leather strap is multi-layered with a stripe down the center and has the extra security of a double-tang buckle. The rivets beside the case between the watch lugs add a great look.

The Vostok-Europe Expedition North Pole-1 YN55/595C640 is a rugged and stylish timepiece designed for adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts. The watch is named after the historic first expedition to the North Pole in 1926, embodying the spirit of exploration and adventure.

The watch features a stainless steel case with a black PVD coating that gives it a sleek and modern look. The case measures 47.3mm in diameter and 17mm in thickness, making it a substantial watch that can withstand harsh conditions.

The black and orange dial has large Arabic numerals and indices coated with Superluminova for easy readability in low-light conditions. The hour and minute hands are also coated with Superluminova, the second hand's bright white tip. A  date window is located at the 4 o'clock position.

The 22 Jeweled SII YN55 is a reliable and accurate movement widely used in the watch industry. It has a power reserve of approximately 41 hours and beats at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. It also features a hacking function, which allows for precise time setting and can be hand-wound.

The watch is water-resistant to 200 meters, making it suitable for swimming, diving, and other water activities. The black leather strap is comfortable to wear and features a buckle clasp for a secure fit. The strap has a dual tang clasp that adds a touch of elegance to the watch.

Overall, the Vostok-Europe Expedition North Pole-1 Automatic Watch (YN55/595C640) on a black leather strap is a rugged and reliable timepiece that is perfect for adventurers who want a watch that can withstand the most challenging conditions. It combines style, functionality, and durability in a way only Vostok-Europe can.
