Vostok 2416B Amphibia

Recommended Posts

Thanks Geo,
here is the secret to my lighting;
eBay item #121337832210
It was a birthday present to myself at the beginning of March to use on my microscope. However a quick cobbling together of a suitable adapter and it now also fits my camera, providing enough light to permit hand held macro shots, so no more tripod on the bench.
The wifey bought me cycling gear as she says that I spend far too much time sat on my fat backside fiddling with watches and I ought to do something to keep my circulation going!!
I will spare you the photos of high vis lycra  :thumbsd:

My Wifie also makes me walk and use my speed bag. They want us to look good.

You'll have noticed that my Vostok Komandirskie watch came with a faux leather strap. This didn't look right so I decide that a brushed SS bracelet was called for. The one in the pictures cost £15 inc post from China. It came supplied with spare links and a pin pusher with a spare screw-in pin. It's heavy and beautifully echoes the bezel.

I need the link for that watch band, it looks great.

Thanks a lot Marc for the walkthrough thumbsu.gif
Hopefully, in a few weeks I get my new diver, different dial as the "Diver Dude", but that has to do with special memories....
2415 movement, I believe is the same a the 2416B, but without date. I also understood that the movements are interchangeable in the case. Obviously, the this dial is not going to work with the date-version, but ample customization options seems also to be a  strong point of this watch wink.png
Can't wait to have a peek inside.... very excited getdown.gif

I have one of these:)42872dd6ef7375ea9c3f69f35e2e205d.jpgAnd one of these.

    • Hi,  I am an American watchmaker and machinist set up for repair, restoration, modification and bottom-up manufacture living currently in Germany.  I have a penchant for vintage tools from German and Swiss and US manufacturers, and use Lorch, Boley, Bergeon, in tandem with modern machine equipment (CNC, mill, lathe, drill press, media blaster, etc.).    My repair and service work takes in a lot of luxury brands like Rolex, Patek, Audemars Piguet, Omega, Panerai, but I also replace batteries for cheap quartz watches, and have repaired cuckoo and kitchen clocks.    I have benefitted from watching Mark's wonderfully methodic and instructive videos on You Tube, which is what made me aware of this site.  You lot are a very civilized and polite bunch, and I look forward to interacting with you as soon as I get through my "lurker" phase.

    • Hallo. My Thomas Earnshaw ES 8059 automatic watch stop working. I did some research so basically company is using Chinese parts… however It is a gift from very important person and I also love design of watch so I really want to keep it. It does not responds to winder, only when I “shake” left/right it, it starts working but only for 5-10 minutes. Any idea if this can be fixed?? Also I am interesting in, what movement it has… I tried to find info, but I cant get it.   Thank you all.
