    I never wore a 650 actually, but the 020's case is a very comfortable one. It wears quite small (smaller than a 710 or 150 for instance) The only thing I really did not like on the 020 were the marks on the sides of the case caused by the milling machine, They are very visible under certain angles. I had some work on the case and I ended up sanding for quite some time until the marks were gone. After that I polished the case with a Dremel tool and polishing paste. Now it looks just fine. Maybe I am a bit too picky on these things, It might well be that you won't even bother :)

    No, I know what you mean. The cases look really coarse in pictures too.

    There are also "matte" cases on meranom that have little holes like they rusted them in acid or something. My interpretation that the (unloved) shiny finish was meant as a solution to the coarse quality of the finish. Now people want matte versions and they just leave them as they are. With an entire case going for 25$ that's probably to be accepted.

    New caseback from Meranom to fit Amphibia models with a manual wind movement.
    Should give your watch a thinner profile and wear a lot smaller!

    Can you just take the rotor off and slap one of these on for a thinner watch?

    That's exactly what I did, and the watch wears SO much better!
    I removed the rotor, entire auto-winding module, and swapped mainsprings.
    You can probably get away with just removing the rotor if you don't mind never truly knowing when your watch is fully wound

    Edit: With the automatic rotor bridge still inside the movement, there might not be enough clearance for the flat casebook...might need to test this.

    Video of the mod (it might be kind of hard to follow along due to all the cuts I made):

    Are these the comeback of Vostok Prestige? https://meranom.com/en/vostok/presti...p=stock_status[5] Prestiges had Vostok-made cases. And much higher prices.
