Where do you purchased that dial? I love it

A Russian friend mentioned to me that there is an old dial, similar to the dial in the Vostok Super Compressor. She said it's a bit older than the dial in the Super Compressor and it's very rare. It inspired me to look for it.

Found this dial on eBay a year later. Looked very much like the dial of the Super Compressor but it was fitted in an ordinary 2416b Vostok Amphibian case. The dial is very damaged unfortunately.

Since the positions of the crowns in a Super Compressor case differs from an ordinary Amphibian case I thought that the dial must be either a modern remake or it's a Super Compressor dial with the legs cut off and glued to the movement. I left the ad but the idea of a "Compressor dial" in an ordinary Amphibian case didn't give my mind any rest. I took a chance and bought the watch. I thought that if it was a modern remake I could always use the watch as a daily "beater". It's a beautiful dial either way.

The watch arrived recently and even if the dial is a bit damaged it has the similar beauty as the Super Compressor. I put the watches side by side and even if the dials looks similar the damaged dial looked a bit larger than the dial in the Super Compressor. The diameter of the dial is different, I think.

I'm a curious person by nature so I got around to disassembling pieces of the watch just to get a better look at the back of the dial. I needed to know if the legs of the dial was cut off or if it was modified in any other way. This is images of the dial.

I don't know? Is the dial a modern remake or is it the dial that my Russian friend told me about?
Maybe someone could start a thread in the forum to ask the members if they can put some light on the subject? The photos in this post can be used in that thread.
Oh, yes of course. I assembled the watch again. It works fine.

Old CCCP Amphibian

View attachment 14605921

The hour hand has been replaced & the lume is a shade whiter which bizarrely I really like ;-)
This model (not my specimen) equiped the Polish Navy divers. Those have issue numbers engraved on the side .
Mine says hi

I think so, this sunbrust blue dials are amazing. Many many thanks for the link, i didn't know they were issued to the polish army and that sounds so good. These watches are really well constructed and doesn't wonder me that they were isued, and of course with super cool cases
