Ordered my first Amphibia

Recommended Posts

From eBay. Will take over a month to arrive, which is crazy, but I plan on modding a little with an SKX divers bezel and Pepsi insert. Can't wait to give modding a try with a dip of the toe.

Not sure if you are aware of this thread but some really good ideas here for mods 

 

The Amphibia's are great watches for the price I have owned a couple in the past

I am not entirely certain that the SKX bezel will fit though , I think you need one specifically for the Amphibia .  good luck with the mod I for one will be interested to see it when finished .

This chap was impressed.

 

 

 

Albeit, a Komandirskie, but same movement as the Amphibia.

Sorry I should've been cleared, it is a vessel designed to got the Amphibia 110 model I ordered, but is there size of an SKX Seiko so will take any SKX insert.

I've had an amphibia in my ebay watch list for agesssss (I won't even mention my amazon wish list). It was originally £40 but the price has slowly started to rise. Its at around £80 for the same one now!!

I really want to grab myself one but I just don't know if I'll wear it! It's a massive toss up between that a seiko 5 sport or a bertucci.

I spent £38 on a Radio Room Amphibia. Whilst I love the watch, it was my intention to put on a new red bezel. To my horror I found a replacement bezel which cost about 10p to manufacture cost almost as much as the watch. I have stuck with the original, but if anyone knows of a cheap supplier please let me know.

As far as I could see, there aren't any unfortunately. Good quality bezel + insert from Dagaz or whatever will easily run to forty quid. 

If you split that cost out over the life of the watch it's easier to justify I guess, but I'm fairly sure the replacement bezels are better quality than the Amphibia itself anyway!
