Hey Jim!Very nice looking , is this the watch you were asking Bezel questions about?
Perfectly put!The result of this myth is that lots of folks who are new to mechanical watches often don't wind their watches fully for fear of breaking the mainspring. They baby their pieces, winding only a few turns, resulting in poor runtime -- a lot of unnecessary anxiety over nothing, in my opinion.
Yeah it suits the 420 case.Hi Watchutalkingabt
II imagine a lot of us have the same problem with reading the date window. It's not happening without glasses unless I stretch my arm out until it's so small that I can't read it anyway.
The clean bezel looks great on round cases like yours. Reminds me of the "Cheburashka" (UFO) or the Volcano case shapes.Which I also like
I liked it shiny, but brushed looks the business as well!Had a change of heart last night re my 'Tankie' with smooth bezel.

The polished case and bezel just looked too much, out of place. I decided to brush the bezel using Scotch Brite but no way that bezel was coming back off. I ruined a knife edge trying and scratched the case a little. I managed to brush the bezel in situ without scuffing the crystal but I still wasn't happy with it, so I brushed the whole watch. Waddaya all think? I think it looks awesome. It presents a strange sort of vintage look and adds 'quirkiness' in spades, to an already quirky watch. My work isn't perfect but I'm happy with it as a first attempt.

I normally like shiny but the Vostok looked odd. Too shiny almost like chrome. Hard to explain.I liked it shiny, but brushed looks the business as well!
Love how this turned out...classy. What case is that? I'm going to look for one, although I thought that 5 Vostoks is enough in one collection
