    Taking the famdamily to dinner tonight so I changed the strap on this dude to a bracelet.
    Figured he could use a little spiffing up. Dude actually cleans up nicely IMO.

    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.

    So, I thought I'd give everyone an update on the current state of things with my new Amphibia. It has been running consistently since I nudged the stuck balance wheel and set it off ticking again. For weeks I tracked its time, and it was gaining consistently between 53-60 seconds a day, which I understand is the upper limit of the acceptable range for this timepiece.

    Well, I didn't find it that acceptable, so I downloaded the Watch Tuner Timegrapher app. for my phone, took the case back off and used the app to regulate the beat rate to a more acceptable level. As of today, it's been five days since I regulated the watch, and it's been running consistently about -2/-3 seconds. I've been hand winding it everyday and wearing it on alternating days with my SKX013. It is keeping amazing time! I couldn't be happier with this watch.

    The beat error is not the speed adjustment lever it is the other one (shorter fatter one) 0.4 is still a bit on the high side you should be able to get it to 0.2 or even zero. If you do the lines on the plot will be close together.
