    Swapped hands on a vintage antimagnetic Vostok amphibia I have. Also replaced the gaskets and am deciding between these two bezels. Thoughts?

    Metal, we don't see enough of them and it looks sportier and more durable (I may be biased from having seen too many scratched bezels).

    I'm surprised by this, but prefer the lighter bezel with this dial/hands combo -- the dark bezel matches the hands well, but then the dial feels out of place (to me). The lighter bezel isn't as refined as the black one somehow, and I think that's a better match for the dial. Nice watch!

    (I'm waiting for those exact hands right now to put together my own home-made "radio room" amphibia. I'll post it when I get it together.)

    Jazz, whats that Seiko on the striped nato?

    Are all the years of images on SF lost forever? They are a valuable resource!

    It's a recraft SNKN01. I have three of the recraft series, love them all... a real PMW they are just a little over $100. I think the bugs on the photo feature have not been worked out yet (I hope) It took me over an hour to figure out how to upload photos. Not real keen on this new system yet. :( And we lost all those cool emojis that we used to have!
