    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival


    I've really enjoyed wearing my Bulova this morning, however...

    Bulova Accutron II 96B253


    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.

    In the interest of keeping what was a fantastic thread going, I have felt compelled to added some content.

    Dammit, Doc! You beat me to it!

    After the drama and tension of the last week from Mr "I-have-more-money-than-you-and-I-get-what-I-want", who started out asking modding questions that the most inexperienced modder knows the answer to and ended up trying to hijack the thread as the 'Komandirskie of Vostok modding' even though the only watches I saw of his were simple bezel swaps, I was looking forward to a new thread and was hoping to be the one to start it

    After all-everyone knows I'm the Lord High Admiral of Vostok modding

    I would like to thank Comrade Chascomm for closing the old thread, so we can clear the air of the poisonous vapors that lingered there

    Reset Rewind Restart

    So for this new thread, I thought I would post the mods that are currently in my collection. These are the ones that are complete and are going to stay the way they are. There are another 20 or so that are being fixed or reworked or just rethought. There were an additional 15-20 that I either sold, gave away or dismantled. Then there are another 80 or so just waiting for me to get around to them

    Please excuse any fingerprints, dust, cigarette ash or cat hair

    And please excuse the not so wonderful pictures. I really need a new camera; or some better lighting; or some better editing software...

    Or maybe it's just my photography skills that suck

    Anyways...all of these have had bezel changes, hand mods and case swaps. Purists be damned!!

    Thank you very much for your kind words. I'm a big fan of the 420 case. I think it suits my wrist size nicely.

    Great herd of modded Vostoks there Lord Possum King. There was some stirring in my loins for some of them.

    So that's where all my spare hands went. Did my cat sneak them out of my workshop for you?
