    Will a 30.46mm inner diameter bezel insert fit aftermarket vostok bezel (ie: boris bezel)?

    No, I'm afraid it won't fit. As far as I know the inner diameter of the insert must be 31.5 mm and the outside diameter 38.0 mm to fit a "standard" after market bezel such as boris'. Your insert would "hang in the air" with about half a millimeter around the inner part of the bezel and would most likely crash into the crystal. I'm not an expert but that is my best estimate.

    Long shot, but does anyone know where a I could get some "Wire Lugs" for an old 350 case - like the ones pictured below?

    Have tried forums, eBay and even written to Pers184 but no luck

    Looks like they could be fabricated out of rings from a NATO strap but that's beyond my skill set

    IgorIV on WUS recently began fabricating and selling the wire lugs and I currently have a pair on there way to me in Australia. Contact him and your dreams will come true

    I was quoted $20 + $4 shipping to Australia, which is amazingly reasonable, however you will have to chat to IgorIV as to what the current charges are.

    Here is the photo he sent me, honestly they look just like the originals
