    Hmm...I'm noticing a disturbing trend. It seems there has been an uptick of thumb injuries in recent months.
    If we're not careful, the forum might need to be renamed to "ThumbUSeek".

    I think I'll probably change the hands and crown at some point and may or may not change the strap, but almost finished.

    Original watch: Vostok 100652
    Strap: Uncle Seiko 22mm waffle strap
    Bezel: Ebay Vostok compatible bezel that accepts SKX inserts
    Bezel insert: Lumed ceramic Namoki

    That's a beautiful mod. I can see why it's your daily wear watch.

    Oh, man, that's one nasy cut! I'm sorry to see that! Kinda extra sensitive about it, I guess The springbar tool does that, but I've never managed the length you did. Also trying to open a case back with a small screwdriver (the "I'm too lazy picking the propper tool" technique) is a thumb killer too.
    You get a temporary membersip, and I hope we soon cancel that
    Speedy recovery!

    Re: Vostok Mod - the Revival

    I picked up a couple of used 110 cases dirt cheap last week and noticed one was scratched.

    So I popped the crystal out and it took a trip to work with me today.

    Threw it in the blasting cabinet and hit it with a dose of .0017” glass beads.

    Scratch gone!


    When I got home, I had to do something with the newly blasted case, so I dug around in my parts and built a simplistic diver’s tool watch.


    Good way to spend a Friday night!
