    That'd be great mate. Send me a PM when they arrive and we'll do business.

    I've been searching for a particular Amphibia for eons: the SE 420361B. A surplus of these sandwich dials got me hopeful that there might be a few extra watches lying around, too. But I doubt it.

    If anyone has this watch in original configuration and is willing to sell, please take my money.

    I got a 710 Black Scuba Dude incoming, quite stoked! It comes with a coin edge bezel, the guy I am getting it from put in a pepsi insert. Don't think I'm a big fan of the pepsi on a black scuba dude dial, but we'll see. I was looking at the FFF insert, think it looks great and I saw Dagaz has them. Not too cheap though and they seem glossy, would prefer a more matte look. Do you guys know of other places where I can get this insert?

    Thanks! I think I'll just keep the stock red one for now, it's not too much fo a bugger, but I never understood why Amphibias had such a short second hand.

    Finally finished my first successful mod. Polished 710, swapped for paddle hands and silver seconds. Polished SS bezel and shark mesh. Of course, the 8 o clock lume pip decided to break off the dial. You just cant win with these things. Eventually Ill source another dial (or maybe I can soak this dial in some kind of weak solvent like alcohol to remove all the pips? They are worthless anyway.

    I really wish Vostok would offer brushed finishes. I dont think polished suits a diver / tool watch.

    I like that a lot. And they do offer "Matte" version, unfortunately only for 090 case :( I have one, and in my opinion it is a lifesaver on 090 case. I could not imagine that chunk of steel all shiny and polished!

    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival

    im looking of a little advice on my first vostok, which most likely will be modded is the near future. so, is there a particular movement i should be getting? as i see it, i might as well get one with a date complication as it allows more possible dials to be used in the future mod and they are the same price on meranom. or am i missing something here?

    For the first steps here you find most basic information: --- A Guide: Buying / Modifying / Repairing VOSTOK AMPHIBIA ---
    If you are not sure about future go for date cal. 2416 you can mount no date dials as well.
