    While I understand your frustration, that could have been framed more politely. There's enough negativity elsewhere on this forum, let's keep this place friendly & welcoming shall we?

    After 7 weeks of waiting and preparation for the day ... Catched a 150 with stainless bezel and crown from Meranom.
    It's really a nice one, but It was clear hands and dial have to be changed.
    Some fast photos from today. This dial is such a beauty ....slightly green, grey sunburst .....excellent ..
    Hands by Igor ( thx mate for the great support)...... painted and relumend by me
    Stock second hands relumend as well

    After all the black stuff it was time for more bling bling

    I like a lot these traditional paddle hands. Recently I have assembled an "experimental", using a 420 case and some aftermarket spares. IMHO not too bad, the 28USD bracelet from Meranom is a perfect match and covers very well the raw finished area between the lugs. I would like to install a longer second hand, but the common mod hands have a rather short sleeve. I prefer it bulletproof, so I went temporary for the original Vostok second hand with the long sleeve.

    Another try to improve my Scuba dude : Dial and Hands from Mr. Favinov, hand wind movement with flat case back (extremely comfortable to wear). I have tried like 10 different aftermarket bezels, finally went back to the original brass one, still a good match and nice stiff rotation. My favorite would be one of the old turquoise-metallic sunbursts dials with the metal frame date window . . . too bad they are not UV-resistant. The new ones from the factory are somehow rather simple, primitive.

    And last but not least : Komandirskie K35, special order and assembly by Mr.Favinov. Dial and hands relumed, movement re-assembled and fine-tuned, crystal and bezel with scratch-resistant nano-coating. Strap from bandukh. Overall costs like twice the price of an ordinary K-35, but worth every single cent. Got it in January, looses constantly round about 40sec per MONTH. My heavy-duty watch since 4 months, works like it should. No visible scratches so far. Amazing blue dial. No issues regarding water resistance. Solid SS crown to be installed soon.

    420 movement and dial (Meranom) transplanted into an 090 case (Meranom). Polished case finish changed to brushed with Scotchbrite. Planet Ocean bezel insert (dr.seikostain Ebay), coin edged bezel (boris_gvb Ebay), Super Oyster bracelet (Strapcode Amazon).

    I like this polished/brushed 420 bracelet myself. I just ordered one from Meranom for my 420 SE as I think it looks better than the shark mesh.
    Also nice combination, blue sandwich dial with the paddle hands works very well. I am thinking of putting a 1967 (3,6,9,12) dial into my 420 SE with this bracelet. I think the polished clean bezel looks good with the polished centre links. Lovely piece you have created!
