      If that bezel is a fake, it is a really good one, so good that Meranom even sold them.....

      I have two of these from Meranom, they were intended for the SE line and were available here https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-classic/spare-parts/vostok-amphibia-black-bezel.html

      I would agree that the hands look legit, the dial I am not familiar with but that means nothing, as I have not seen all they have. The case looks to be an 090 and the crown appears legit.
      Can't say about the movement from memory.

      All in all I say it looks pretty cool

      The fake bezels are easily discerned by the fact that the "30" is printed upside down and the "5" in the "50" is also upside down. Your Meranom bezels are the real thing.

      Thank you all very much for the replies.

      It's all really helpful information.
      So, if I'm going to do it, I need to buy the following, I believe...
      Fixing ring
      https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-cl...stok-amphibia-metal-movement-fixing-ring.html

      Case
      https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-classic/spare-parts/vostok-watch-case-710.html

      Movement
      https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-classic/spare-parts/vostok-watch-2415-movement.html

      Dial, (This is about my favourite no date dial.. Really would prefer something that has the makers mark on it, cyrillic "B," Boctok, etc..

      Crown

      Bezel
      https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-classic/spare-parts/vostok-amphibia-black-bezel.html

      x2 dial screws
      https://meranom.com/en/komandirskie...rew-for-fixing-dial-on-vostok-24-caliber.html

      x2 movement screws
      https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-cl...ew-for-fixing-vostok-24-caliber-movement.html

      Quickly working it out in my head, that comes to about 100USD

      I will give it some thought.. I can get this for less than that..

      I believe that this style of bezel fits on the 160 case: https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-classic/spare-parts/vostok-amphibia-black-bezel.html
      Unfortunately it's out of stock on Meranom, but there's good news!

      For the same price you can get this bezel with a Superluminova lume pip: https://www.ebay.com/sch/favinov/m....&_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=bezel&rt=nc&_udlo=20
      If you like this style, you may want to contact him to double check that it will fit.
      I would love a red bezel insert so that would definitely be a better option. Thanks.

      The look great, I'll definitely keep the watch but replace the bezel. Sorry for all the questions but are bezels standard size?

      This looks good.

      The newer Vostok production is a bit different than the classic amfibia/komandirskie. A bezel for newer models won't fit a classic amfibia, it will get stuck on the thread for the screwdown crown. The classic amfibia bezel has a narrower lower section, so it stays clear of it.
      In short, I think the one you posted a link to will not fit. In the comments section there's a suggestion this one might, but it's out of stock

      https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-classic/spare-parts/vostok-amphibia-black-bezel.html

      Anyway, make sure the bezel fits classic vintage amfibias, before you buy it. Ask if it fits a classic 119 case.
