    My summer Amphibia. 710059 + Meranom Pepsi Bezel + Blue Perlon. I like the combo.

    I knew this day would come. I brushed my 710 this morning. Then gave the crystal a polywatch scrub.

    I'll probably do a second pass on the stainless. The curved case is tough to get an even finish on.

    Excuse my shiny bezel. I cleaned up the surface on that, too. Tarnish will start in approximately 10min, haha.

    I love how the Pepsi bezel picks up the red from the seconds hand! The blue Perlon looks great - a very nicely put together ensemble.

    Looks great!
    How did you perform the brushing?

    Ye olde Scotchbrite method. And a few different grits of manicure files for the nooks and crannies. The lightest file grits can even buff the crystal.

    Thank you for the info and inspiration!
    I have a Amphibia with this "ministry" case in the mail and also have plans to unbling it.

    They did make this brushed 090 SE but it's the only one I've seen brushed beside sea the 1967 reissue. I agree that they should offer this finish as I much prefer it to the matte finish.

    Just for clarity, they do offer 090 case in Matte version even in non-SE lineup. I bought this from Meranom as normal stock. The Matte versions are denoted with an "M" after the model number, but again, they are available. So this would be 090660M as opposed to 090660 (I only swapped the bezel and replaced the strap, obviously) :)

    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival

    Been sick as a dog since I picked up a nasty cold in the SA Queens (I shoot ftr) I won though which is a yay, but far too cold down south!! Anyway parts started arriving and being ill I had time to play, here are my efforts. The first is my black and orange scuba dude, I fitted a while ago a mesh strap and the stainless crown. I ased Meranom if they could get orange bezels and they did so I grabbed one while they were in stock here is the result.
    The second pic is my project, I bought the case bezel, two different dials and the crown from Meranom, the hands I asked a forum member, but not sure where he is so I bought the paddle hands. The strap is an ebay item that I fit to most of my watches. Quite happy with the result!! Sorry about the second pic I will get a better one tomorrow.
