    It is the first trial....some further optimization required. I will switch the second hand to blue... or select a more powerful yellow for the ring

    I've actually been contemplating almost this exact same setup. Maybe a different bezel, but pretty much what I was thinking about.

    Everything but the silicone is stuff from my parts bin.

    Result- An ultra thin (sub-12mm) diver with self hydrating seals that's capable of extreme WR. And it doesn't need to be opened for decades unless there's a HW failure. Even with all new parts, the HW would cost less than Neptune.
    Im very interested for your project. Times ago I had very intensive contact with the member "deerwarrior"' in the timeeeper forum. He pimped a shrouded Seiko quartz to 1900m by oil filling. ...he reported his experiences very detailed in the other forum.
    My Plan was also to do this with one of my seikos...ok I stopped it because not enough time...
    Many questions coming up ...
    Im not sure if the case design of a Vostok is the right choice...sealing .method, plexi glas
    Or the solar movement ...enough torque ...?
    But anyway ...do it ...very very interesting project !.....Advanced modding

    To help keep the clutter down I'm going to move Bathysphere to it's own thread until it's finished.

    First mod ever, after having lurked the forums for a while. Bezel and dial from meranom.
    Hands from Igor, though couldn't get the minute-hand to fit properly, which is why the original is on there now. Probably damaged it during my 1st attempt at attaching the hands. On a tropic skin diver strap.

    Too loose or too tight?

    I could get it on there, but it kept falling off after having rotated a few laps

    can you say where you picked up the bezel/insert?
    Wife: Don't you have enough watches?
    Me: Don't you have enough earrings?
    Wife: So, you're saying that watches are jewelry for Men?
    Me: That's exactly what I'm saying.
    Wife: Let's go shopping.

    And that's how I got my last watch...

    It was from a private ebay seller although I think it's an AM bezel.
