    No, not that I am aware of.

    However, Meranom and other part suppliers lurk in this forum and read with interest our demands for parts.

    Perhaps you should start a separate thread or conduct a poll and if we show enough interest, a thin glass caseback could be produced.


    A lower profile Vostok would help to reduce that "Lost In Space" UFO appearance.

    There would probably be a decent amount of interest. A bonus is that Meranom most likely already has a supplier that can produce this part, due to the two versions they sell for auto-wind movements.
    I laughed out loud when I saw that Vostok "UFO" picture

    I've seen versions that have standard threading (for example the Komandirskie 1965 680220), but never with the Russian 2-piece caseback design.
    I prefer the manual versions of the 24XX Vostoks (2409/2414) and I like to put them in Amphibia cases, and it's always a bit of a hassle to find flat Amphibia case backs. It would be nice if Meranom could provide them. And, yes, a flat glass case back version for both Amphibians and Komandirskies would be nice! I think a well cleaned Vostok movement deserves to be on display!

    Meranom does actually sell the flat case back for 2409/2414

    Thanks, it's been a while since I last checked! It would seem the popularity of Russian watches is growing. Great, and they do deserve it! Me and comrade EndeavourDK have been trying to promote Russian movements/watches over at WRT but with little, or should I say, no success.

    Any recommendations for a good polish to use on my acrylic crystals? Plain white toothpaste gives less than desirable results
    Meguiar's PlastX? Brasso?
