    This looks great. Can I ask what bracelet it is? It looks made for 420 case and with solid links! I think I need it :)

    Are there any options for matte finish bezels other than pers? He rarely if ever seems to have them available. I am staying away from matte finish cases because I cant find a bezel to match (everything I see is either brushed or polished) but sometimes I see a good deal on a matte finish model.

    This is a good question .There is really no option out there.
    ..Matte means beadblasted, even the pieces by pers are not beadblasted mostly, I think.
    In this case you see it very clearly . Mostly you see as well prints by treatment

    Then you have the next issue : matte is not matte . The stock 090 case is very rough blasted ..a potential bezel could be finer .
    To have a complete picture of the whole watch you have to beadblast all parts by the same supplier . IMHO
    Please consider the disadvantage of matte cases : e.g scratches are more visible than on other surfaces

    In this case the appearance is more closed, but very rough

    An example of an excellent treated case by beadblasting is giving the user wotsch in this thread ...( 100 case with Sandwich Dial in the middle of the site

    I guess the different to the 090 case is clear then

    I see. Looks like colored options like PVD are the only option, otherwise the mismatched finish looks accidental.

    Doc, where did you get the black sword hands? The paddles look like they are from Igor, am I correct?

    Lol! I love the internet.

    Anyway, I found a matte finish bezel, from arkustime. Thoughts? I messaged them to ask if they have any pics installed on a matte finish case:

Doc, any thoughts on the matte bezel from Arkustime I posted? Also, perhaps you can link to the old thread in your first post as a reference tool for people who are researching mods?
    Seems fine , if you like clean bezels ....
    Good idea ..I will set the link.

    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival

    This seller seems to have new / NOS examples of the acrylic skinny bezels that meranom has re-issued with aluminum inserts. Are these modern reproductions? Or did he have a stash of unused examples?
