    To kick off this thread; This dial and Housing, is that a legit combination? If not, to which housing belongs this dial ?
    The dial has currently Komandirskie hands, but can it be with Amphibian hands too ? ..... (perhaps in a 270 case??)

    As you'll know from looking through the 1993 catalogue this is a type 64 case and I think the 1993 catalogue image is the only reference we have for this particular case, as for whether or not that dial is legit in that case the answer is it might be

    But it would also look good in a 270 case and as there's no catalogue image at all for the 270 case nobody could prove it's wrong

    Sounds good, as I wanted to use the case for the 2000 WW2 commemorative dial I have and possibly the "Vostok" dial for the 270 housing.

    The combination of the this 64 case and the dial I have should look like the watch below;

    Thank you for your help

    Watch looks good the back will only fit upside down but you've seen that before the box might be from an earlier Vostok as the packaging used in 1994/95 was usually the same as seen with your Dnepr watch.

    Here's another sticker

    My guess is that they were put on to prove that the watch was genuine at a time when there were a lot of Chinese fakes around.

    So am I

    Do the papers in the box go with the 1995 Victory watch you posted ? As that's an unknown case type and they could solve the mystery of what case code these cushion cased Vostoks have

    Here is a similar copy on sale now. Look at the matching bezel.... Do you think they made different combos? Probably.
