    The old thread is still very much accessible for browsing/reference: Vostok mods.

    Do you think brassing out the bezel would bring out the bronze in the dial? Or make it less noticeable?

    It's a vintage 470 case. If you want a aftermarket bezel for it, these fit fine

    I am looking for a steel crown for my vintage 470, and Dimitri from Meranom feels that the 420 crown is most likely to fit, but he isnt totally sure. Does anyone have any input?

    I have used a 420 crown on 119, 470 and 960 cases

    Nothing to be sorry about

    That is correct about the insert

    A stock 670 insert should work on a 470, but I have yet to try it

    Thank you! Is it same to assume the 420 crown will work on 22XX movements as well?

    Also, I ordered Favinov hands for a 2209 I am modding before realizing that the two movements use different sized hands. The seconds hand is predicted not to fit at all, and the 24xx minute hand can be "loose"--what should I do to tighten the fit? I imagine the tolerances are very small? Can I modify the seconds hand to fit as well?
