    Question Vostok Pilot Mod?

    I have been looking for a durable, affordable pilot watch in recent weeks, so I am considering modding a 120 case with a smooth bezel and 647 dial (looks closest to a traditional flieger dial IMO). I also love the domed crystal and 200M WR (which many pilot watches costing considerable more lack). And I can swap a diver bezel and put on the stock rubber strap to make it a dive watch.

    What do you think? Here is a picture I found of a similarly modded 120 with a different dial. I would like to swap the hands, but Meranom does not appear to carry anything other than the standard Amphibian and Komandirskie handset.

    Sound nice to me!
    Check komandirskie.com for hands (and post some pics once you're done!!)

    Thanks. I will probably get working on this as soon as I can. Is there anyone that makes a coin edge bezel that fits Vostoks? Like this one or similar?

    I think you can contact pers184 for that style of bezel, he will custom make it for you. It takes a long time though as he makes it from scratch. Do a search on this forum to see his work

    Do you know if pers184 is still active? He hasn't been on the site in 2 years.

    Hmm, I'm not sure, sorry. Maybe you can also send him a message via eBay (same username)
