Oh, and these today
I always undo the movement holding ring screws which give me a bit of wiggle room to help seat the stem then when its clicked in place I can then check its all lined up, do the two screws up and job done.A couple more Vostok’s showed up today. I cleaned up the Amphibian with the movement out and upon re-casing it I had the same problem I always seem to have with those dang 2409’s, a struggle seating the crown. I’ve read to put pressure on the movement toward the crown while pressing the crown in and also pressing the stem release button. Something also about using tweezers to grip the stem and work it that way back into the movement? Still didn’t get it in there correctly. I’ll have another go at it tomorrow.

You paid out of your small donkey for a citizen?I just bought the Zissou Amphibia in a 710 case from meranom; I already have a 420 case from my very first Vostok watch (RIP), so I'll transfer it in that case when it arrives (that much modding I'm capable of), and I already have a strap, I just need the Zissou caseback - hopefully it comes back in stock soon.
I could've gotten it in a 420 case from Komandirskie, but this way I'll get an extra 710 case for modding (which probably will never happen, but it's good to have dreams). Oh, and I need a beanie.
This would be my second 'movie watch', after my paid-out-of-my-ass Brad Pitt's Citizen 8110A from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Update: apparently both shipments were routed through Poland...Is it just me or does anyone else have shipments with tracking that hasn't been updated since last Friday, when it shows they left Russia and were forwarded to the carrier? I have two that have been moving together apparently...
