    I turned down an old brass bezel, on my lathe,until it fitted, polished, and coloured with Gun Blue solution. Glued in place, and waxed.


    Depending on the light, is shows some interesting colour.

    Excellent !

    Holy smokes. Not only is this well executed, but it shows an understanding of how classic design elements can go together (font, color, negative space...), but also an analysis of what the target audience actually needed in a watch. Some watch manufacturers can’t seem to get either of these things right. Very nicely done.

    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival

    I can't wait for my new mods to come in from One-step-closer guys. I decided to go for a doxa style mod, changing a bezel, dial (although it's not a doxa one, couldn't find one without a date window), as bezel insert from yobokies, new endmill bracelet from Miltat, new hands from Raffles time, and even a gilded movement ring just for the sake of having it inside lol (will need to order a big window case back to take advantage of it though). Waiting is so hard..

    Doxa is popular in modding community) I'm making one too. Your one looks very cool, my dial is not going to be anywhere close to doxa one unfortunately

    Also, we should all write to these guys to show them we're interested in this bezel for vostok :) I sent him a message, he said he is considering doing a Vostok version but I think he'll have more confidence with more people showing interest.
