In August of 2003 an agreement was reached between the Vilnius based Koliz company and the Chystopol Watch Factory Vostok on the establishment of the joint company Koliz Vostok. The goal of the new company was the creation of a new watch series that would have both modern design and quality. Thus, the new watch brand Vostok-Europe was created
In April 2004 the first Vostok-Europe watch series was presented at the BaselWorld exhibition. The first Vostok-Europe collection consisted of 5 watch models including the model K3 Submarine that became the first Vostok-Europe bestseller.
In August 2004 the first Vostok-Europe watch shipments were sent to Germany, Poland, Greece and the USA
By the year 2007 the number of countries where Vostok-Europe watches are being sold has risen to 30
In 2009 the Vostok-Europe Ekranoplan are the first Vostok-Europe watches with tritium illumination (tritium tubes). In 2010 the Anchar model is the first Vostok-Europe diving watch, combining both tritium tubes and water resistance up to 300 meters. Both Anchar and Ekranoplan watch models were extremely successful due to their authentic and highly attractive design. At the time Vostok-Europe starts using Seiko Instruments Inc. movements as well as Vostok and MIYOTA movements
Vostok-Europe watches become the official watches of the Greek Football Federation
