    Help finding a Radio Room with Date.

    I've recently got into Vostoks - I now have six! Anyway, the disease has taken full hold and now I want to buy a Radio Room Black dial as the 7th.

    However, I want an RR with a date. I have seen some RRs with dates on image searches, but I can't seem to find one for sale in the usual places (Meranom, Christopolcity, etc).

    Are RRs still made with dates? And, if so, can someone put me on the right track please?

    Thank you.

    I've only ever seen these offered by komandirskie.com up to a year or so ago. They're not currently on the online catalogue, however it might be worth contacting them to see if they still have any left. I don't know if komandirskie.com had a special deal with Vostok on dials but they used to carry several which I never saw elsewhere including a Che Guevara commemoration and some with the FSB logo.

    Maybe worth contacting Dmitry at Meranom and seeing if they are still made and if there are any hidden away somewhere.

    Or buy a standard one and cut the date window out with some scissors.

    All these subtle tools only as you seem to insist a date window should be square.
    So, no option to drill, punch out a round one?

    The radio room appeared on the dial of the Vostok in the 90s on the Albatross watch. A few years ago meranom made special series with a black and silver radio room. but all of these models were undated.

    If you are thinking about making a date window yourself, you may want to consider cutting with a laser.

    You are not considering ebay? I just searched and there are quite a few RRs with the dates.

    Thanks All. An Eb*y search was my first port of call. I could not see any RRs with dates for sale. I am in the UK and did a 'Worldwide' search. Perhaps the ones found do not ship to the UK?

    EDIT: Sorry, just to be clear I'm looking for a Vostok Amphibia Radio Room - not Vostok-Europe ones.
