    If I'm not mistaken, the text up means "Made in Chistopol, Russia" and in the bottom "By special order". Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.

    When that photo first got posted I thought it was in Black/White. I'm a bit divided, I love red highlights, maybe they can do some of the text in red? I'm not sure if the reasoning was production or maybe some feedback about the other chromed hands.

    Re: The new Vostok Amphibia SE.

    Newbie here, does anyone know if it's possible to purchase the 420555S with the stainless steel radio room bezel?

    Or alternatively, is it possible to purchase the stainless steel radio room bezel separately? (or even alternatively, the 555 dial only)

    Thanks!

    Actually, I'm pretty sure it is. You can see it's the exact same pictures as the one with red second hand. That's why it doesn't look chromed. Anyway, I'm 99% sure it's the same picture in black and white and i'm happy I grabbed some of the red second hand.

    Just ask Meranom, they are great people to deal with.

    Re: The new Vostok Amphibia SE.

    Well all, the two watches that hit my doorstep today were intercepted by my wife. Now she wants a purse. Okay, back to the watch. My first impression of my new 110 with calendar where is awesome!

    The likes:

    1. Checking out the Russian newspaper that was used as packing material.
    2. The finish of the watch is nice.
    3. Great feel on the wrist.
    4. In person it is not as large as I thought it would be; nonetheless, perfect size.
    5. Love the hands and the look of the bezel.

    The dislikes:
    1. I hate the bezel movement is completely useless. I prefer a unidirectional bezel with clicks. If you try using this one it would be too easy to move it and through off your timing.
    2. I want a Neptune SE!

    I post pics later.

    Cheers

    Papichulo--
    I noticed the same problem with my 100 SE. The bezel was way too loose. Fortunately, you can fix that, by popping off the bezel and futzing with the bezel wire a bit, or by acquiring or purchasing a replacement wire, which will make the movement of the bezel a bit more stiff. Meranom sells them (and they might send you a replacement if you complain about the bezel action for free if you PM them) and forumer Bobby, aka JRMTactical, made a bunch of them a few months back, and he may be willing to sell one or two for a couple of bucks.

    It won't replicate a click bezel, but it should be tense enough that you won't accidentally bump it when you're timing something.
