    Amphibia Pilot Mod

    I got my Amphibia pilot mod from Meranom a few days ago (It arrived in about 2 1/2 weeks). I went with a 120 case, clean bezel, and 647 dial. I took off the stock rubber strap (which is not too bad) and installed a leather/canvas combo. I think it looks pretty good.

    Can I ask a question, this is a special order from Meranom? You emailed and asked him to build? And the bezel is fixed and not rotating?

    These parts are all available on the website. The bezel would rotate if you tried to turn it. It can be popped off and replaced with another bezel.

    Only the dots in the outer ring are lumed. All Vostok dials are that way except the SE line or if you have them modded by a 3rd party.

    Very nice!
    Can you show us more of this strap?
    Also one suggestion if I may: how about one of these stainless steel crowns available at meranom (or at least that used to be) to mimic a bit the onion crown of old pilot watches?

    I ordered a SS logo crown. I believe the onion crown in only available for some Komanderskie cases.
