    What would you do with this Amphibian?

    Blue Scuba 060. Getting kinda bored and I'm afraid to try a Seiko because I bang my watch on everything, doors, doorknobs, corners, etc. At least with a Vostok diver I can buff the scratches out.

    Anyway, it's harder for me to visualize what different bezels and straps would look on this as the 060 has hooded lugs. What would you guys do to this to spice it up for a little variety?

    mod it

    Buy a different style case, a 710 for example and very different from your 060 and move the movement over and then strap it with a strap from CheapestNatoStraps.com

    Thanks. I'm not really willing to do much to it besides change the strap and/or bezel though, taking the guts out and moving to a new case is a bit out of my league and I'm just not sure a NATO strap would work with this case.

    Thanks I'm not sure what that means? Ratnik is having the crown face the other direction?
