    It's a Morellato, real rubber I think. Very comfortable. I bought it online but not sure which site. It is the Cayman.

    And possible recipients (the 2x Soviets are awaiting incoming spares)

    Then you have the next issue : matte is not matte . The stock 090 case is very rough blasted ..a potential bezel could be finer .
    To have a complete picture of the whole watch you have to beadblast all parts by the same supplier . IMHO
    Please consider the disadvantage of matte cases : e.g scratches are more visible than on other surfaces

    In this case the appearance is more closed, but very rough

    An example of an excellent treated case by beadblasting is giving the user wotsch in this thread ...( 100 case with Sandwich Dial in the middle of the site
    Amphibia Mod - Page 3 - Russian & Chinese Watches - The Watch Forum
    I guess the different to the 090 case is clear then
    Where did you get these bezels? They look nice.

    What do you do with a blue Soviet Scuba Dude dial that is all scratched up and has a circular track from the hour hand dragging?

    Pop it in the oven at 425 for an hour or so!

    Padded looking strap is probably original low-priced Soviet-Russian. I read today here on f10 that the best way to get crown gasket out of Amphibia is to "winkle" it out; this is British slang, meaning to improvise probably with something sharp and pointy. When I get there, I plan to try a long pin or two, or Dumont #2 tweezers. Good luck!!
