    Help with a Dude

    Had a question about these two dudes. Which one would be the one to get? I am thinking the first as the second one does not show the movement. I also like the first one more, the dial is pretty sweet. The only thing is going to be the strap, that might be the deal breaker for this first one.

    First one:


    The only thing is that some of the lume lines seem of center especially at the 4 and 5 positions.

    Second one:



    If you all think these are no dice, then I will just pick up one from zenitar, probably a red/orange/white on black, or black on orange. Too many, cant decide, need help :p
    I'll make a soldier's decision to fly away. Load my gun, paint my face, call me misery. I can see the sky light up and the ground explode
    Got my sights locked in, I can see you breathe. Then I watched you fall and somebody scream. It's the saddest thing when angels fly away.
    Got a badge for my scars just the other day. Wore it proud for the sake of my sanity. I could see the flames burn bright from the winding road

    Hello. I'm not the specialist on Amphibians, as I usually buy the first shiny thing I see, but if it we me, I would get the dude with the black bezel, as it may be a bit rarer. I wouldn't worry about the strap, as you will probably dump it for silicon, nato or mesh anyway.

    Also, I like the CCCP, Soviet era watches, so either one would work. Maybe you can buy both?

    Horo - I have that issue too, I've gotten better but still want everything!
    Bobby - thanks for the advice, one closes soon and the other in a few days. I really want the black bezel one, but don't want to miss out on both if I wait for that one. I might end up with both, I might be wanting to 'Bobby' mod my case as well as the Murphy mod, and if I get both, we might find a way to work something out ;)

    If you want the Neptune, some folks around here have done great work with a mesh strap. Is that bezel original? I suppose that only matters if you care.

    Re: Help with a Dude

    Second one just ended. $111.50! Holy crap, I can get one from Zenitar for much less. People are insane I tell you, insane! Well looks like my chips are one the first one.

    Bobby, how well would the Murphy bezel hold up to your bead blasting?

    The Murphy Bezel is stainless, so it is good to go. As long as the insert isn't in it. It will turn the gray color that you see on my post of my 'Mil-Spec' Amphibian. If you have case and bezel that you want done I'll do it for you, just pay the postage to and from.

    Oh yeah, $111.50!!! Holy COW!! Really?? Almost a year ago I might not've blinked,.....but now....sheesh.

    If you get a new one, I'd feel better about blasting it! If you want it done I'll be glad to do it. First, you keep the movement (minus the crown/stem) with you and send the rest, then I will disassemble and blast it. I like to blast the inner trim ring/crystal support to match (otherwise you have a bright and shiny ring in the midst of all that subdued beauty). I'll send it back in unassembled so that you can assemble it to your satisfaction. Fair'nuf?
