  1. 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?
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  5. 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...

    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...

    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!
  8. 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...
  9. 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!

    I bought a Vostok Amphibia a few months back and wear it almost exclusively. Untill yesterday when my Seiko 6309 showed up ;-) I only took it off when showering, doing sports or working in the yard. This is not going to be a positive review but I still like the watch a lot but that's mainly...
