I’ve just placed an order for my first Vostok Amphibia and am extremely excited to get it.

I’ve heard a lot of horrible things about the bracelets on amphibias and I’ll likely be switching the bracelet to something better. I want to replace it with another steel bracelet, but I also don’t want to spend too much money on this watch, since it’s going to be my everyday beater watch.

Do any of you have any recommendations for a decent steel strap around the $30 CAD mark? Does anyone know what the steel bracelets that you can find on amazon are like?

I think the problem you will run into is that the end links won't fit on a generic band. Mesh bracelets tend to look good on a straight spring bar.

I have the 420 case and I went with a leather NATO since I don't swim with my watch. I get lots of complements on it. BTW, I never even tried the supplied bracelet on. You might want to try it, let it break in for a few weeks and see for yourself.
