    Where did you get that bezel from?

    Received my 670 dateless Scuba Dude, and not 30 seconds removed from the box; it got the modding treatment. Replaced bezel, hands, and caseback. The bezel design is just not my taste, the hands were too generic Amphibia, and replaced the regular "Amphibia" case back with the SE Scuba Dude (don't know why they didn't put that case back on in the first place).

    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival

    Finally performed my first mod. I have way more respect for the patience required in this hobby; the whole thing had me really frustrated in the beginning. I am still having issues with the seconds hand being loose (will occasionally swing a few seconds forward / backwards). I had the gear retention spring supported when I installed the hand, but it seems to still be loose upon the post. I would ask if its possible to crimp down the mounting tube, but its probably like 0.1mm as it is and I dont know how I would accomplish that. Any ideas?

    I also broke off some of the lume on the hand, which prompted another bout of cursing. The hand puller tool I was using was *GARBAGE*, it came in an $18 amazon combo kit along with a hands press (which was serviceable). The blades / tines of the forks that lift the hand were as thick as several hands stacked together, how the hell are you supposed to slide that under the hour hand and not mar the dial? Considering how simple and low tech this tool is, I would have assumed it would not be difficult to manufacture a decent one, but once again, China has gotten the better of us.

    I replaced all the gaskets (except the crown gasket, not sure how to get it out?) but I have a brushed steel crown coming in from Meranom to complete the look, and then I will have this pressure tested for WR.

    Which bezel do you guys like better? Machined or Black?

    I just finished this one. Nothing major- 090 matte case, OSC matte gold bezel, OSC red Dodger.One insert, NOS sub dial w/o date and a nice matching NATO:
