    Welcome to the forums Raketa. I have enjoyed writing many articles and reviews of your watches over the past 6 years!

    I just purchased a Limited Edition Amphibia for review this week and I'll have an article up in the next week or two.

    I love this "clean" and minimalistic dial. It's got the reference 2603/663025.

    Thanks. I hope that you like it. We're particularly proud of the decoration on the movement, a combination of mechanical decoration & print decoration (every diver dreams to meet a Russian mermaid!). The mechanical engraving on the bridges is done before we set the stones and before the bridges are plated (for protection against corrosion) and assembled. Basically, a brand that buys its movement could not really do this because its extremely difficult to disassemble everything and assemble the bridges again (especially the balance bridge). The logo on the dial (the anchor and the bat) represents the logo of the Russian navy tactical divers. The new Amphibia watch is based on the Soviet Raketa amphibia model that "lagazeta" posted above.
