    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival

    I saw a post that said vostok is coming out with new cases and dials. Is that true and if it down we know the case diameter and lug to lug size of the new cases. With the new cases out will they stop producing some of the old cases?

    Vostok has been coming out with some new stuff lately but I don't think there are any new cases we haven't seen yet. Newer diameters are stretching into 41mm, not far from the 39-40mm older cases, meaning lug to lug will be proportionally similar, but 020, 650, and 670 cases are the first ones with a 20mm lug width instead of 18 or 22mm.

    We cannot confirm whether older cases will be discontinued but it would make sense. 160 definitely seems like an upgrade from 060, and I personally believe 150 will replace the 710, although it is very popular, and perhaps also 090.

    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...

    Do you think the 420 case will be discontinued?

    Does anyone know why is that there isn't any watches available under 960 case? I've been looking at that page for months now and I don't see any watches listed under that case no.

    Thank you for the info. Try a black light. I've been relatively pleased with the Ranfft lume as far as brightness & duration. I don't have a Seiko diver or anything with C1/3 lume but I doubt it is up to that level (completely anecdotal - I really have no idea). However, after minimal charging around 10pm I've been able to read the time in the middle of the night (3-5am?). Of course I've only used it on the pre-existing dots of Vostok dials - luming larger areas may result in increased brightness. But where it really shines (!) is ease of application. When it starts getting a little thick, add more thinner. On the page I linked to he has a video of application on a hand.

    I don't, it's also very popular, unless they went with one of their other small cases like 100? That shares tooling with the 160 I think.

    960 has been reserved for the Neptune models since the late 80's or so, and they stopped making serial production Neptunes leaving only Meranom's SE Neptunes. It could also be because the lugs make it less popular especially with the typical rattling bracelets.

    Almost. Case is the same. Bracelet, Bezel, Crown, Hands... number 5 I thought was overall wearability / artistic impact ;)
