    I was lucky enough to get my hands on a bunch of SE sandwich dials from Meranom before they sold out

    Here's the first finished product

    Please do tell if you used a 2416b with the date complication removed, or did you transplant the taller pinions into a 2409? Any other snippets of wisdom?

    I am waiting for your information with gleeful anticipation, like a puppy

    I used a 2415 that had a date mechanism holder plate installed, but no date mechanism parts...I removed the plate and the dial fit perfectly. I had another 2415 with the same arrangement that I'm currently using for the next sandwich dial mod to be shown shortly.

    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival

    ThePossumKing inspired me to assemble my own sandwich dial mod.

    I decided to resurrect an old and well loved 119 case and give it a modern facelift.

    All parts used are genuine Vostok and Meranom parts (other than case back screw ring).

    a. Original Vostok 119 case,
    b. Original 2416b movement and spacer with calendar complication removed,
    c. Meranom SE sandwich dial.
    d. Meranom gilt rotor,
    e. Meranom Amphibia crystal with gilt tension ring,
    f. Meranom stainless steel SE crown,
    g. Vostok gilt hand set,
    h. Meranom glass case back,
    i. Dr Seikostain case back screw ring,
    j. Vostok "Golden Shark" bezel.
    k. Custom made leather watch band from a mate in the Phillipines.

    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival

    Hi experts, I'm really happy with my Scuba Dude, but one thing that bothers me is the second hand because it's 1 or 2mm too short to match the minute markers. I love the style of the stock hand but do you know where I could find a slightly longer similar replacement?

    thanks!

    Favinov on eBay sells longer hands. Unfortunately, the red version is without the lumi spot - simple red seconds hand (for Komandirskije, I believe). The ones with lumi dot are currently only available in silver and black.

    A couple of weeks ago...sold out in a matter of hours. I was lucky enough to snag a total of 8 in the 3 different colors
