Brass, enamels, lacquer; measures 26.4 mm in height (not including the pendant, measured between the bottom of the wreath and the top point of the flag); 29.0 mm in width (measured near the bottom, between the lower edge of the red plaque and the rightmost point of the wreath). Unlike the regular issue Long Distance Voyage badge for surface ship crews, this badge features a lacquered pendant with the name of the exercise Okean ("Ocean"). The reverse shows raised logo of the Pobeda Factory in Moscow below the pin.

In excellent condition. The enamel shows only a couple of microscopic contact marks, no wear noticeable to the naked eye. The lacquer on the pendant is intact. Details and fire gilt finish are beautifully preserved.

The badge was issued to the crewmen of the surface ships and some personnel of the Soviet Land Forces who had participated in the naval exercise Okean ("Ocean"). These Warsaw Pact war games were unprecedented in their scale, numbering hundreds of warships simultaneously deployed in all four oceans.
