Does anyone have a go-to source for Vostok mod parts? I’ve looked on Meranom, but not sure if there’s a way to verify model compatibility for parts.
I’m looking to swap the bezel on my Komandirskie 020706

Meranom.com, Komandirskie.com, vostok-watches24.com, one-second-closer.com, bunch of sellers on ebay (just write in the search bezel amphibia vostok)...

If you're not sure if something fits, just ask the sellers, they're usually very helpfull.

Dunno if they still have 'em but Meranom were selling awesome grille bezels that might fit, can not find fault with Meranom and Komandirskie.com are bloody epic too, have two Amphibia's and some sundries and accessories in the post from Komdotcom, including a pair of 99 rouble 22mm Boctok bracelets which is insane cheap.

Not sure of the postage times to the states but both seem to be either side of two weeks-ish, my last Amphibia took 16 actual days which is pretty good as some of my UK stuff from UK sellers has taken longer lol

It's pretty easy to tell what the compatibility issues are if you look at your case. For the Vostok case on the left, the bezel protrudes past the crown, so you MUST use bezels which have the cutout at the bottom or they will never fit. For the Vostok case on the right, the bezel does not protrude past the crown so you don't have that limitation. I'm not sure what the bezel compatibility issues are with the Komandirskie bezels, but I'm pretty certain the 02 and 03 cases will take any bezel designed for any of the classic Amphibias. In the last picture you can see my 02 (which I think is basically the same as the 03 case). It has an aftermarket bezel designed for the Amphibia classic. It has the cutout, but it is not needed since the crown is outboard of the bezel.

This is extremely helpful, especially with the photos. Thank you so much!

Thanks, I already have the bezel, but damn are those inserts expensive. I got the same one in green from a guy on ebay somewhat cheaper, but he doesn't have any anymore.
That one is ceramic, C3 lumed, and very high quality. If you want to compromise on one or all of those things you can certainly find them cheaper.
