    No reply to my question, will just try it one more time :) Does anyone know where this 420 bracelet is from? Surely this is not the Meranom one?! It says on Meranom site that his stainless steel band for 420 case has got folded links.

    On a "technical" note - I really struggle to fit the clean bezel (Meranom's 01K2) on my Amphibia. Is there a trick I am missing? I have tried about 6 months ago and have failed miserably. I gave it couple of months wait, tried again... sweated over it but failed miserably again. I am unable to "push" it to the case so it clicks to place. There just isn't anything to push, really. I always end up with about 3/4 of the bezel in place, if that makes sense. Is there a tool I need or HOW DO YOU DO IT?

    It's a Meranom.

    There's always matte automotive spray. I used it on this bezel / insert. Had it in the cabinet after this :




    Excuse the obligatory cat hair.

    I did a Scotch Brite brush to lightly expose some brass. It might oxidize weird, but looks good right now. I don't know if I'll go all-out.

    Thanks!!

    I'm not overly keen on the bezel...nor the nato strap...I feel the need to make changes to those two!!

    What I really need to do is mark items by a watch list rather than just putting in a bid and forgetting about them LOL!!! Not the first time but I really wasn't prepared for this one :P

    Is it basically a matte clear coat? How long does it last? You just sprayed it on and let it dry? How many coats? Thanks for the suggestion!

    Also, is anyone else having trouble viewing page 8 of this thread? Every time I click on it it takes me to page 7, even when I manually edit the url to page 8.

    How about a green bezel from Meranom, and a steel bracelet (example pictured from TRUMiRR on AliE).

    Of course I won't stop you, but I will say it is very rare to find such a clean example of an original antimagnetic Amphibia.

    I tend to agree. I have fitted new bezels to some of my modern Amphibias, but leave the ones from the Soviet period as they are.
