    Maybe you can ask Igor to manufacture some 2209 hands..
    Would be fruitful to know the required dimensions ...
    ..how to tighten ? Difficult ..... Second Hand ....wow this tiny hole ..I guess you need a specialist and a microscope to to this

    Even to adjust the hour Hand ...its difficult enough ..


    The shapes of crown stem 22xx and 24xx are different not internchangeable

    Ah, thats unfortunate. Looks like the meranom crown will not work. I thought all 470 models were equipped with 22xx movements?

    No, most of the 470 models had 24xx movements in them. I do have one 470 that has a 22xx in it, but I don't know if it is original

    You can pinch the flange (if there is one) on the back of the minute hand with a pair of tweezers to make it a little smaller.
    You are out of luck with the second hand- a 24xx is .17 mm and the 22xx is (I think) .21 or .22 mm

    I can't help but notice this project watch that I did last year.
    Definitely an affordable that punches way above its entry point after all is done. Some may think its a bit blingy
    and I can understand since it certainly not my style but I like how this piece turned out.
    Its unique to me and it gets the job done so I wear it.


    Modded Vostok Amphibia 420335





    This very affordable piece isn't so bad looking in my humble opinion...

    Hoping everyone is having a terrific Thursday.

    Where did you get that stainless steel and black dual tone bracelet? it looks fantastic.

    Pretty sure that's just the light. Looks like the standard Meranom bracelet to me.

    Yes, it must be the one with polished center links.

    I've flipped a couple, so this is all that's in my box right now while, like most of you I suspect, wait for parts from Russia and Poland for a few projects.

    Surely not? It looks miles better than standard bracelet and it can't be the Neptune bracelet.

    Sorry, my mistake. Not "standard", but easily accessible: https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-cla...-420-case.html
