    Yes, there is no reason it wouldn't, as Amphibia and Komandirskie cases have the same dimension bezels. Just be aware that large bezels may interfere with the crown.

    Big, long and, finally - cut

    I had for a long time custom strap, that would fit some tool watch, but was too long for me to wear it comfortly.

    So, strap, prepared to be cut! Here is the surgery room (my kitchen room) and the surgery table.

    I need my tool to be sharp. Last year I was at France, and we took to the some fromages to the home - we don't have such at Russia (sanctions, you know - but actually I discovered, that always the most expensive food outside the country of the origin is worse than the cheapest one at the original place of production - also true for kognac/armagnac). The best part that fromages were in ceramics made from very thin clay. So the bottom side is just extremely perfect for sharpening any knife. So - to the work:

    After 5 minutes I made a small check

    Perfectly

    And final cut up to the right size for me.

    Do you have sand paper or a file, something to maybe round off the corners a little otherwise very nice Indeed, and that is a really nice watch!, I would love to own!
    Those lugs are beautiful, do you know of any other watches like it that are available to purchase? You could PM me if you want!

    This is a good way. What I do as well is pushing the mechanism with the finger from the other side towards the stem (first remove the rotor from that place, of course).

    Has a thin glass caseback ever been produced for manual wind Vostoks?
    I've seen versions that have standard threading (for example the Komandirskie 1965 680220), but never with the Russian 2-piece caseback design.
