    I was wondering if anyone knew the most significant or historical Vostok dial. I’d say the radio room or the 659 but I want to hear some thoughts.

    I recently purchased this bracelet for my amphibia from meranom. I was wondering if anyone knew how to size it since I can't seem to find anything. Thanks.

    Hi guys, hope all is well! I am in the process of building 2 different Amphibias, one is brand new coming in the mail, so no problems with that movement. The second one, however, is one of my first Vostok builds. In my carelessness I lost the little piece that goes under the balance, the shim...

    Up for sale is my Vostok Amphibian Classic 710 Case Watch. It's not getting wrist time. The case is clear of any dings and scratches but has hairline scratches around it. I put Zagg screen protector on the crystal out of the box so the crystal is clean. The dial has a small scratch on it. I...
  5. Straps & Bracelets
    Hello, a couple of months ago I got my first ever automatic watch - blue scuba amphibia in ministry case. The bracelet of choice was black Zulu, but I got a bit tired from using the same strap and I want to try something new. Recently I explored all sorts of different band types and designs but...
  6. Russian watches
    The eBay seller I bought this watch from listed it as an amphibian. It looked similar to the 420 case, but it is not polished and rounded off like online pictures show. The edges are quite sharp. It has a 2416b movement.

    I have a Vostok Amphibia that randomly stops ticking. I'm a complete noob to mechanical watches, but I want to wear this Amphibia. How would I go about fixing it?
  8. Russian watches
    I'm looking for this style Amphibia dial for the watch on the left, with the hexagonal case. I've found the watch on the right on eBay for a reasonable price, and I'm wondering if I can do a transplant. I know the movements are different, but will the dial on the right fit in the watch on the left?
  9. Russian watches
    Perusing the vintage Amphibia offerings on eBay lately, I've noticed a few with new black bezels that are identical to the original style with two exceptions: the numerals look to be more silver than white, and the pip at 12 o'clock is raised. I've included photos below of four different watches...
  10. Russian watches
    I've got a couple of Amphibias that I'd like to match with the proper bezel. By "proper," I mean I'd like to pair them with bezels that they could have actually been purchased with. I thought I had done that with this pair, but when I look at various photos of these models, it looks like each of...

    The title says it all. I've been looking for a particular Komandirskie model to add to my collection and found one on eBay listed by a reputable dealer that is in nice shape and affordable, but it's got a cracked crystal. I have a spare Amphibia case with a crystal that's in good shape. Can I...
  12. Russian watches
    Just received this beauty from Russia last week: The photo doesn't do it justice, but it's in terrific shape and keeps fairly good time. I purchased it from eBay/forum friend asap31, who was kind enough to throw in a genuine Vostok strap. This one now joins my humble Vostok collection...
  13. Watchmaking
    I originally posted this in the public forums, but it later occurred to me that it's not the best place for it: Hello everyone! I've always been into watches, but started really collecting them since November. I've been reading the forums here since and TBH I've found a lot of useful...
  14. Russian watches
    My Komandirskie just came in the mail yesterday. I like the mesh strap, but was wondering if the watch might look even better with some other type of strap. What are your thoughts? Mahalo!
  15. Russian watches
    I recently purchased a Soviet-era Amphibia with the tonneau case like the one you see on the left below (sadly, mine does not have the paddle hands). I'd like to put it on a bracelet wider than 18mm, as seen in this picture. How is that done? Are there adapters for bracelets, or is some kind of...
  16. Russian watches
    I'm trying to teach myself some amateur watchmaking skills as I try to restore a few Vostoks. After acquiring some watchmaking tools and learning a ton in this forum, I've had some small successes. My biggest failures are with Vostok hands. With some patience, I've been able to remove/replace...

    Hey all: I'm relatively new to this board, so I just wanted to preference this listing with a short "about me." I'm not a dealer or retailer, just a watch collector like most all of us here. I sell watches when I need funds to purchase new ones (surprise, surprise). I buy and sell on everyone's...

    My newest arrival, a Vostok amfibia - REEF diver! :-) with a Vostok automatic mechanism 2416B and a 42mm diameter case!
