    I am afraid the only way to make the bezel stiffer is to take the bezel off and play with the wire...probably easier to leave it as it is.

    Salted water... I do not know if it was the idea of the designers, but all my Amphibians which had swon in the sea have perfect bezel action...

    My two favorite Vostok cases, 100 and 090

    Unfortunately, I managed to bang my 100 against a door frame and scratched up the crystal a bit.

    As much as I love these watches I really wish Vostok would offer some upgrades. Sapphire and Superlume would take these guys to another level of awesome. I, for one, would be willing to pay the extra price. I would love to see Vostok make something like a "supreme edition" someday. I think they would sell like hotcakesand it's not like they are expensive watches to begin with.

    I'm happy with the result and it's more comfortable than the strap that came with the watch. It's not quite so orange once you put it on your wrist.

    Strog,... I really like your strap choice. Can you mention where you bought it please?

    Well I do like that 090, very traditional. I guess we already got an SE so how about an AE ? Awesome Edition.

    Better lume definitely. Sapphire I have no use for if it increases the price. There are excellent reasons for acrylic. It will not feel like a BOCTOK. Too neo-capitalist blingy.

    It should be kept cheap. It is already selling like hotcakes. Supply should increase.

    Quality control in proper assembly and lubrication of the movement is much more important for me, and it has been very problematic with the 2416b recently. I sincerely hope that the SE have better assembled and lubricated movements.

    How about a 30 ATM version Comrades? Like the old one whose bezel was adopted in the 555 SE? With THICKKKK crystal? And perhaps a matte case AND bezel? Heavy, tank-like and minimalistic?
