    Very good post Matt! Lots of good information in one place and certainly helps a LOT!
    As an FYI I used to make bezel springs/wires from spring stock and I might do so again sometime in the future. The newer "stock" wires never really suited me personally so I started making them myself when I needed to. Good to see that there is another seller offering them as well!

    If you would like to make the springs again and offer them for sale, I can add your name and contact info. to the Guide.

    I too am not a fan of the stock copper alloy springs.

    Brilliant information Matt. Tempted to have a go at brushing my scuba dude, always regret buying the shiny one.
    ​I'm afraid one day I will die and my wife will sell my watches for what I told her I paid for them.

    Have a go at it. If you make a mistake, just brush over the area again. If, in the future, you want to restore the original polished finish, simply rub it with progressively finer grades of sandpaper or compound then finish with a fine metal polish.

    Don't be afraid to make mistakes with these watches.


    Many of us here have modded or repaired our Vostoks and we can help anyone mod or repair their own Vostok.
