    Yes. All Calendar mechanism parts are identical for the 2416 / 2416B and 2414

    Completely interchangeable.

    Hey guys, something I would like to share. you should give this a try for polishing the Chrome, Stainless, Brass and titanium nitrite on our watches. I had this in my buffing box for a year or so and gave it a try today....... WOW this stuff works great. regards, James.

    With all these mods possibilities & suppliers, i think its about time we have a case for unidirectional bezel like any other traditional diver's watch (mostly). Meranom did it with their SE model. Hope they're planning on mass production. Cheers

    Re: --- A Guide: Buying / Modifying / Repairing VOSTOK AMPHIBIA ---

    Hi all,

    I'm very new to this whole Vostok thing, but I'm trying to learn fast.

    One question I have is regarding the metal bracelets - It seems everyone is fond of getting rid of them, presumably because they're not so good. But, I'm working on restoring one of the 50 Years Victory watches, and I really would like an old fashioned, worn down to the brass bracelet instead of modern shark mesh or whatever.

    Any ideas on how I might be able to achieve that? I've taken a look at all of the sellers, and short of buying an old $30-40 watch just for the bracelet, I don't seem to be having any luck.

    PS: Likewise, I've taken a look around and I can't for the life of me find one of the 'etched' double-eagle casebacks. I've seen a few on this forum, but the best I can find is one on ebay that looks like the design has been welded on ...

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    .
    Russian 'double-eagle' caseback:

    - post a request in the 'Parts Wanted' thread
    - they were usually installed on certain models of Komandirskie
    - the stamped version is perhaps what you perceive to be 'welded' ??


    If a seller does not have a photo of the caseback or if the photo is not clear, ask them for confirmation of which caseback is installed.

    Strangely, Vostok sold both versions simultaneously. Perhaps they switched models at some point in time but there was much stock left of the other version? Or they have 2 different suppliers ?

    Thanks for the advice!

    And yep, stamped seems a likely possibility to me. Simply that the text is raised vs. engraved out of the caseback. Perhaps the particular one I was looking at on ebay was a particularly bad example (or the photos were bad), because it just looked very sloppy.

    I was hoping they were a common part that could be ordered new, but yep, I'll see if the parts wanted thread has any luck for me. Cheers!
