    Anyone know where I can buy a curved (not flat) profile Fifty Fathoms glass lumed insert like this one?

    I see Yobokies (Harold) does a flat one for the Seiko SKX007 which should fit the Vostok bezels. Shame he doesn't do the curved profile though. Nice selection of Seiko inserts though. In other news I see Dagaz is now planning on offering Vostok bezels. So it's only a matter of time before he also offers hands too.

    Interesting, where did you see that about Dagaz? And are you talking bezel or insert?

    Bezels. Harold announced it on his Dagaz Facebook page apparently (I don't use FB so can't give you a link). The Seiko SKX bezels inserts he already sells on the Dagaz site fit Vostok bezels. But he was saying that due to customer pressure he has finally caved and will be offering his own bezels to fit Vostok's soon. The good thing about this is that it's more competition for dr.seikostain and AM Watches etc. So keeps the prices down. Personally I don't made paying 50 Euro for a bezel+insert or 20 Euro for an insert alone; but the cheaper the better really. For Rolex and Planet Ocean style bezels AM Watches are the best. But for regular coin edged ones (to fit ones own insert) then I find boris_gvb to be the best. I have used dr.seikostain inserts on a boris bezel before, but they are flat rather than the bevelled profile of AM Watches, so don't look as good with the domed crystal in my opinion.
    Having said all that, it's a flat Dagaz Fifty Fathoms insert that is going on my next boris bezel when it arrives from Poland. Hennadiy (boris_gvb) and Krystoff (dr.seikostain) are both gentlemen to deal with respectively. Harold (Yobokies) on the other hand is slow to reply to messages. Also he doesn't have a website or Ebay page! So one has to email him to order then wait (ages) for a Paypal invoice. A lesson in how not to do business really!
    Nice selection of inserts on Dagaz website though. Be careful to order SKX ones though, as SNZF are a different size and wont fit Vostok bezels.

    On the subject of bezel inserts; if anyone is looking for a quality Fifty Fathoms style one I can recommend this one. 10/10 quality and at 23 USD including shipping it's a fair price too. He improved the design on earlier models which used to have a round lume dot. These diamond lume dot ones are more sunken into the insert so less likely to catch on clothes etc and pull out. I have fitted them into my boris_gvb bezels and the fit is good. See the link below:

    Does anyone have a spare 12 hr bezel they would like to sell (if they hate it and are throwing it out of the window, I am right outside)?

    something like this....
