    Re: The new Vostok Amphibia SE.

    I got a 7 ¾ inch wrist and I find all the cases wear about the same except for the 090 or tonneau case. That one is the big daddy.
    The 420 case looks smaller than the 100 but that’s an optical illusion. In fact the black bezel with date 420 looks smaller than the silver bezel no date version but it’s just a trick.
    I could do with tightening the bezels on some of my old Komandirskie models so if anyone has any tips or links please post them for me.
    I can imagine 20 years from now people will be saying those old SE models were awesome.

    If I may ask, what do the people that received watches with a chromed second hand think of them? The pictures look nice, but first hand accounts are even better. Thank you!

    I like mine, I think it looks classier than the red hand, though I don't own the red for comparison, just from pictures. It's the same chrome as the non-lumed parts of the other hands so it's more subtle.

    Thumbs Up Re: The new Vostok Amphibia SE.

    4 new additions for me today, 2 from our friends at meranom - an 090 matte case, chrome second hand SE, and a 'clean bezel' for the 100 case SE I have. Also an ST5 watch and a shark mesh bracelet. A good day, all in all.

    Re: The new Vostok Amphibia SE.

    I'm going back and forth on the chrome second hand. It definitely makes the watch look more elegant, but I like the little bit of color the red second hand adds...

    On the other hand, the red second hand is sort of orange tinged, and that kind of bothers me...

    I'm going to need to flip one of the SE's that I have, and it's gonna be a really hard decision which to keep and which to part with...
