  1. Vostok 2414a movement not winding

    Russian watches
    Hi all, I found a Vostok 2414a movement in a regular Komandirskie case in my drawer. There is no rust in it but when I try to unscrew the crown and wind it there is no tension which normally would. There is still those clicking sound by the way. And I noticed on the dial while trying to wind it...

    I have an old Boctok Komandirskie on the way on which I want to replace the hands, the crown, and the crystal if it doesn’t polish up well. I just don’t know how to identify the movement so I can get ahold of compatible parts. Thank you for your help in advance!

  4. Fog under the crystal... this easy solution worked for me.

    Public Forum
    Recently, my Vostok Amphibia fogged up when I was swimming with it. I read a lot of forum posts where people immediately concluded that fogging was a sign of the water resistance being compromised. In fact, this seemed like the most common response. But I also remembered seeing a video in...

    Russian watches
    Hi everyone, I purchased a Retro 550931 towards the end of last year from Meranom and it has never worked properly - the main problem being that the autowinder only spins freely in one direction. It's less than a year old but sending it back to Meranom isn't possible because covid-19...

I've read that the Amphibia and Komandirskie bezels are interchangeable. Will Meranom install one of the individual Amphibia bezels on to a...
