    I thought I would check out Meranoms listing photo's and guess what? It actually shows that the Orange comes with a brushed crown and the Green comes with a polished crown. So it is as advertised after all

    Another interesting observation is that the Green has a slightly recessed area on the case where the crown is, whereas the Orange does not. This is the same as what my own watches show.

    Parcel from Favinov arrived today, so phase two. Another temporary bezel as I was getting sick of the first. The paddle hands are practically torches!

    OT: for the WUS project we had a discussion with Meranom regarding the crown stepping out too much from the 150 case.

    I am sorry to have missed these two watches, they look neat.

    Ah, so maybe it's more to do with Batch 1 versus Batch 2 rather than intentional design differences. Interesting.

    Mine (from Batch 1) is like Mario's: https://mroatman.wixsite.com/watches...aItem-j5s3n6gl

    I think I like it better. But of course I was going to say that :)

    Most probably they (in Vostok) had finished the brushed crowns and then...who cares!
    This is a brilliant example of Russian pragmatism and practical functionalism

    Moreover, as everyone knows, shiny crowns are more expensive, almost 30USD! :-D
