Modding a Vostok Amphibia - resources, tips and tricks

No issues with the crown / bezel getting in each other's way on the 710 and does the crystal still sit proud of the bezel?

I have one of your brushed 710 cases - it's a real improvement on the original.  Did you ever post how you did it? (sorry for being lazy and not searching :blush:)

Plenty of clearance between crown and bezel :thumbsup:  but the crystal doesn't sit proud. 

Brushing is a careful application of Scotchbrite green scourer in a uniform direction, achieved by cutting a disc of it and attaching to a Dremel-type tool, then a gentle polish afterwards to even it out slightly. Photo shows the Scotchbrite in the 'after' condition (it was a neat disc 'before')!




Oh, and apologies to Wotsch - I posted this on the wrong thread really. It was meant to be on the general Mods thread, not your Resources thread. Sorry.

Hi Alex and welcome to the forum. I like the strap - can I ask where you got it from?

Got a set of these stick on bezels for the Vostok from a well-known auction site what do you think  The lume is not as bright as in the picture must be my photographic skills.They just stick over the bezel.1st pic before.
