    Zdravstvujtye!

    Arrived this morning at long last . Modded (by Meranom)Vostok Amphibia 160271

    I couldn’t be happier. I just wish at the time of ordering, the scuba dude caseback was in stock…

    Is there a trick with the crown? It took me several attempts to push it back from time setting position. Also I thought I read in these threads, that the new stainless steel crown that you can buy as an added option, doesn’t have the famous Vostok wobble?

    I’ve been doing some more reading. So you’re supposed to screw back the crown after setting the time. That disengages time setting if you want to wind the mechanism?

    Yep that's right. Unscrew the crown (without pulling out fully) to wind. Pull out fully to set time. Screw back in after setting time to un-engage the time setting mechanism.

    Also, the steel crowns are supposed to have the wobblyness. I don't think I've ever seen anyone suggest otherwise on here - but I could be wrong. Either way, fear not - all is as it should be.

    That's a great looking watch by the way!

    Green 960SE just arrived from meranom today. I went with the date version.

    Sorry for poor phone pic....


    Initial impressions are very good. The bracelet stands out immediately to me in comparison to those supplied with a scuba dude for example. This is solid and doesn't rattle.

    Re: Show your Amphibias! Part 2

    So, my new Amphibia stopped while I was setting the time (possibly got over-wound) just minutes after taking it out of its box.

    I was distraught and disappointed that after a month of waiting for it to arrive, and after reading so much about how these things are indestructible, that it could be so easily broken through normal use. I decided to take the case back off and see if I could see what the problem was. It wasn't immediately apparent to my untrained eye, so after tapping on it and shaking it around as suggested by friends, I decided to try nudging the balance to see if that would work. Lo and behold, that did the trick! It's back to ticking away, although it's running about 40 seconds fast at the moment.

    I thought I'd share this pic of the movement, which is way more nicely finished than I would imagine a watch of this price to be.

    Has it been running continously since then??

    So what dial you got? Let us see its face .

    By the way I really like that black movement spacer! One of my newest Amphibias has a purple one... Vostok has always produced natural nylon color movement spacers... I hope they continue putting colored ones from now on, are a nice touch.
