    Thats not an AM bezel. Looks more like a bezel from arkustime.

    Sorry for the late answer! So as if you are 7 year olds...
    It's a special editon by meranom, named 420333S. I had been desired for this combination for a while: the most martial dial with date and with the most legible hands (+the long coralred secondhand) in the most compact case. It have a bonus feature: антимагнитные, that means it have protection against nuclear detonations (no, it just have an additional metal piece on the caseback ). The only thing I did that changing the bezel to this, just for the greater bombproofness. All in all, it's my ultimate survivor watch for WW III.

    I seem to be slowly brushing my 710. Yesterday I did the end of the crown, since it had a scuff. Today I was bored at work and did the sides of the case. Who knows what will happen tomorrow.

    For those interested I started the new thread for the Bathysphere Mk I project over on f77. I felt Watch Concepts & Designs forum was a better home for it as I may end up making a very limited run based on the Mk I and lessons learned from it.

Not sure the auto-winding assembly could have affected this, but I needed to remove it to let down the main spring. All I know is that is hasn't stopped ticking for the last week or so. This represents my first successful 'repair' of a watch movement!

    A quick installation into a polished 090 case, with new black / blue classic Amphibian hands, AM bezel and a solid steel oyster type bracelet transformed it into a watch to adore!

    I just love those classic Scuba Dude colours with black & steel.
