    I hope the reissue uses a case shape like the 40th anniversary one. That one was gorgeous.

    I don't have a old 1967 but those who have can confirm or deny that the laser engraving is the same.
    It is the exact same engraving yes

    A reissue of the reissue for 40 years is not exactly what I want from Amfibia 50 years.

    I was hoping the case shape would be different as I already have the previous model; but I am okay with it. I hope that they have fixed the mineral crystal issue for this one; maybe a sapphire crystal upgrade?

    So true, Seeing that the case is exactly the same. I am hoping that maybe there will be a change in the bezel, dial, hands at least.

    Looks like they could be revisiting the chamfered crown they suggested a while back in a poll, which did vastly win user favor over the unchamfered one they decided to offer on the new models anyways. This new chamfer is shallower than the older one they showed which I think looks great. Also, this was specifically mentioned as a prototype for the 670 models, so maybe those new models, and the dark green-blue dials shown but not released, will be introduced with those lovely black bezels and this new crown. We can only hope.

    Edit: Stated if these crowns perform well they will be released in a month or two.

    Left to right comparison: K35 crown (polished?), new Amphibian crown, old chamfered prototype
    All others: Regular brushed K35 crown, and a bunch of new chamfered prototypes

    Another poll, more wavy dials! I say they're much nicer than the current 160 models. I chose 1,3,6, and apparently so did everyone else, with the only controversy being between the two less-impressive green models.





    One comment made by Vostok says they have not been able to "master" the equipment for bezel inserts, and would not buy (outsource?) them. This explains the recent models being as they are. Whether this means inserts are still coming or not, I do not know.

    In other news, a user posted pictures of these two models that I have never seen before. The applied numbers are unusually nice and as I suspected these dials were produced back in 2008-2010, Vostok confirmed. You're not likely to find anything like them ever again. Keep in mind these still have the chromed bezel and crimped crown.
