That is really nice, congratulations. Is that your first mod?

Where did you get the strap?

(Oh, and thank you for your compliments)

You are welcome!
Thank you for your comment. This is actually my last mod, but only 3 or 4 are final. I will post some pics when I will manage to get decent shots!
You can find this strap here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/201368797242?var=500561044583&ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649

Insert from Dr. Seikostein, bezel from zavar011 (ebay). I prefer the quality of Dr. Seikostein bezels, but I thing that they are huge for the ministry case.
The case is polished, it is just the diffused light (I used a plain A4 since I haven't a diffuser yet!).

Well the diffusing certainly worked! :wink:  Looks great anyway. I have a Dr S bezel on a 710 case and deliberately went for his big deep one with knurled edge. It is, as you say, huge. But I like it :rolleyes:

Just read this thread again from the begining as I have an urge to mod a vostok. I have owned a few in the past and regret parting with them. 

Very difficult deciding which base model to start with , I want a 22mm lug so looking at either the 100 without crown guard or the 110 with guard. 

I have managed to source a family member that is willing to bead blast the case for me , off to Ebay and meranom website now to start pricing parts up like watch, bezel and maybe their new crown . 

Seeing as the last post on here was 2016 I was wondering if anyone had any new Vostok mods to add .

Apologies for jumping in. Just ordered this Amphibia 100842 for a first mod project. Only looking to change bezel, insert and put on a strap. 
Can I ask where people are buying their parts please? I’ve looked on One Second Closer, AM Watches and DLW. 
Also is it possible to use Seiko bezel and inserts on an Amphibia please? If so which do I look for?

Cheers in advance

As far as I am aware A seiko bezel will not fit a vostok watch , but if for example you bought a bezel from OSC then a seiko bezel insert will fit  you need a bezel for a skx007 . 

Another alternative is to buy a bezel from Meranom

After the last bits and pieces arrived this afternoon, I couldn't wait to put this one together so I spent the evening neglecting the missus and fiddling about with my latest mod.

This one is a 710SE from Meranom which, to be honest, didn't really need modding as it is one of his best IMO. However, I had a few ideas how to improve it, and here are the results:

Compared to some of my recent mods, this one hasn't had that much done, but the result is a changed watch.

The bezel and insert are from Dr. Seikostain on eBay. I particularly like the chunky coined bezel and the subtle gunmetal grey insert colour.

As seems to be the usual recently, I had the case bead-blasted for a smooth, matte finish. This time I also sent one of Meranom's after-market steel straps and the bezel for the same treatment.

Overall, I'm very happy with the finish. No need for one of the new steel crowns on this one, as the one it came with is perfect (also bead-blasted).

I love the dial on this. Apparently it's metal and it has a great finish and pressed numerals.
