When you strip the case with acid, do you leave the crystal in?
Thank you.

Excellent work and combination with the strap. turning the crown ( case) to 7 o’clock is a great detail.
please can you show also a wristshot ? Would appreciated.

Nice !
Did you put a flat caseback ? If so, can you show us a profile pic to see the thickness difference ?

So, on Friday I was graced with a visit from @1afc in the afternoon for a coffee and a chat :coffee: (y) :D

@1afc (Alan) brought along an assortment of his pad printed dials for me to check out, and I must say that I was very impressed with his samples.

He graciously gifted me with one of his Big Zero sterile dials (in a Leftie dial feet configuration) designed to fit a Vostok 24XX movement and asked me to do something with it.

So, doing what I could with what I had at hand I present to you the Vostok Komandirskie Big Zero for Lefties :D

The case is a Vostok Komandirskie Type 811, the movement is a Vostok 2409, the dial is a custom made leftie printed by @1afc and the hands are from @igorIV .

Thanks for a great conversation and meet up Alan :)

Do so like this - the strap sets it off really well! (y)
