  1. Vostok Bronze

    That looks great. I hope that mine colours up as nicely as this.
  2. Vostok Bronze

    Got mine off eBay.

    Hydrochloric acid.
  4. Vostok Bronze

    It's an old watch which I have stripped the chrome off, polished the bezel and added a light brushed finish to the case. The brass should get a nice patina with age. Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk

  6. Amateurish web store

    Maybe it's job preservation from the stores staff, figuring if the pictures online are so poor then people will still have to visit the store so they will need need staff :D
  7. G shock £34.99 argos ebay

    Don't think I would bother with it even if it was half the price. Nasty looking plastic thing in my eyes, but each to their own.
  8. Brass watch conversion

    Quite please how my Komandirskie brass convesrion has turned out. The case is a brushed finish using 3000 grit and the bezel polished with Autosol and then Cape Cod. Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  9. Hi, Has anyone in the UK got a spare Vostok bezel retaining spring they could sell to me? I can get some from Russia, but I'd rather not wait that long. TIA

  11. Since restoring my dads old watch, I've been wanting to do a few more restorations. I'm no watchmaker, so the most I can do is cosmetic restoration really. I've tried buying a couple of watches off eBay but they were beyond help! So, my question is, where is a good place to obtain watches that are restorable but not junk?
  12. How do I get the back off this? Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
