    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...

    Sent the hard way from my Commodore 64.
    Let it flow like a mud slide,
    When I get on I like to ride and glide,
    I've got depth of perception in my text y'all,
    I get props at my mention 'cause I vex y'all,

    So what'cha what'cha what'cha want? What'cha want?
    You're so funny with the money that you flaunt.
    I said where'd you get your information from, huh?
    You think that you can front when revelation comes?

    eBay seller summerspring100 - unfortunately, looks like I took his last. You might ping him and ask him to generate (or buy) some more.

    Bezel CERAMIC for Watches Vostok Amphibian Custom Stainless Steel ’ос‚ок АœФ˜‘˜Я | eBay

    Somehow Google translate turned "please sell me the insert only" to, "put this insert into another bezel." And I had to cut this insert out and put it into a different bezel.

    I can see that there is a muscle memory curve with putting on and taking off bezels, gluing them in, etc.

    Special thanks to Arvac for sharing where he bought his:

    I wish that tachymetre bezel came in Cyrillic / Russian to match the watch.

    After the drama and tension of the last week from Mr "I-have-more-money-than-you-and-I-get-what-I-want", who started out asking modding questions that the most inexperienced modder knows the answer to and ended up trying to hijack the thread as the 'Komandirskie of Vostok modding' even though the only watches I saw of his were simple bezel swaps, I was looking forward to a new thread and was hoping to be the one to start it

    After all-everyone knows I'm the Lord High Admiral of Vostok modding

    I would like to thank Comrade Chascomm for closing the old thread, so we can clear the air of the poisonous vapors that lingered there

    Reset Rewind Restart

    So for this new thread, I thought I would post the mods that are currently in my collection. These are the ones that are complete and are going to stay the way they are. There are another 20 or so that are being fixed or reworked or just rethought. There were an additional 15-20 that I either sold, gave away or dismantled. Then there are another 80 or so just waiting for me to get around to them

    Please excuse any fingerprints, dust, cigarette ash or cat hair

    And please excuse the not so wonderful pictures. I really need a new camera; or some better lighting; or some better editing software...

    Or maybe it's just my photography skills that suck

    Anyways...all of these have had bezel changes, hand mods and case swaps. Purists be damned!!

    and that's it for now. Sorry for jamming your feed!

    If anyone has any questions about any of these (parts sources, modding questions, etc), feel free to PM me

    Thanks!
    Some of these look bloody fantastic and so much more interesting than the bunch of seiko's I've ended up with. I would love to find out more. I have a green scubadude that I bought simply because it caught my eye and the name was too groovy to pass haha it might get some brothers I think
