    Very nice! So how difficult is reluming?

    If you're just doing dots & hands (if you're comfortable removing & re-setting hands), not difficult at all - give it a shot.
    This should give you an idea:

    How many attempts or how difficult did you find it to achieve the right ratio of powder to binder?

    How long did the lume in your mixing pot last before getting too dry to work with?

    It was easier than I thought really. I just mixed until thought it was right. I practised a few times dropping dots on an old dial to make sure the lume wasnt to runny or too dry them just applied dots. The hands were a little trickier but I just thinned out the mixture a bit more to allow it to flow a little more. Mixing the lume I find, is all about a softly softly approach. Definitely use a loupe when applying. As far as drying time goes it was quite cold when I did this so I had plenty of time. I probably could have done 2 dials easily. You can always add thinner which is supplied if it does dry out too much. Give it a go just take your time.

    My first Vostok mod: an Amphibia 670 Scuba Dude with a Pepsi Boris bezel. It's just a simple bezel swap, but I rather like my Pepsi Dude.

    I was kind of surprised at how difficult it was to get the original bezel off...it really put up a fight.

    150 Mod . The case is perfect for the thick Seiko spring bars ( it is a mess to use Vostok stock spring bars in salt water... )

    Woah, those hands and dial! Vostok could learn a thing or two from you.
