But after 20-25 winds I heard a click noise (Yes I know. It's a bad omen). And I found out that after doing this, the only way to get the watch from time-set position to handwind position is screwing the crown back in. It doesn't click into winding position from time-set position. Only way to to this is screwing the crown and hearing the proper click voice in the process. I will show it to my watchmaker but I still want to know if it is normal or not. I will post some photos with the straps when it comes (and without any mechanical problems luckily)
    Yes, it is normal!
    I had such an issue with my previous watches, it's how they work. I decided to order the new Vostok Amphibia Automatic (from http://vostokamphibia.com/shop/vosto...h-2416b420334/) as I would like to diversify my collection of watches. It is a very interesting model of Vostok, and I think the quality is good too. At first, I thought to get a Komandirskie, because I really like it. One friend promised me to sell a 1987 one, original and inexpensive.

    I have decided I am going to try to mod a vintage 470 Amphibia with black paddle hands from favinov (to match the bezel) and a steel crown (to match the case).

    The trouble is that meranom doesnt sell a steel crown to fit the 470 case, only the 670/650 case, which seems very similar / identical in photos. Are they the same in dimension? Can anyone offer some input?

    Looks like our internet age losing resources/information strikes again. Many photos missing, many links dead, pdf links dead. If anybody at least has the most recent pdfs, can you please reup.

    What movement? If you haven't already seen it, there are some posts in the thread below about that crown. I have swapped stems from a 710 to a 470 without issue - but that was with the same 24x movement. However, I believe the same stem works in the 470 with the appropriate handwind Soviet (2409?) movement original to those cases. In which case the steel stem for the 710/420 case is what you need.

    Having just brought a round case yesterday I've been looking into them and got a bit confused. So I got the two I have , I thought a 020 and a 420 but that I think is wrong.
    What I thought was a 420 I now believe to be a komandirskie 92x . You can see brass showing from plate loss. It does however have 2 slots for the back to fit on but the actual back has only 1 lug.

    I also compared the lugs . They appear to be slightly different in shape.

    The 020 more rounded when viewed from above. Otherwise the same.

    The one I thought was a 420 does have an amphibian crown also, is this correct or wrong ?
    The 020 has amphibian hands whilst the 92x or 420 has komandirskie hands.

    ​I'm afraid one day I will die and my wife will sell my watches for what I told her I paid for them.
