Where did you get that bezel for your amphibian, I’ve never seen that one? Meranom? I have a bunch of vostoks an I’d like to start modding some of them, thanks in advance.

Good morning, this type of bezel was for sale on the Meranom website but is currently out of stock. However, it's a normal Komandirskie bezel without chrome plating; it can be customized by removing the chrome plating from a standard bezel (you need a chrome bezel and not a modern steel bezel). To remove the chrome, you can proceed either with a very fine sandpaper (it is a bit tedious job to get a uniform result) or with a 30-40% solution of hydrochloric acid and a brush (be very careful, it's a little more dangerous but the result is more uniform and you don't risk scratching the painted dots). Alternatively, with a little patience, on the online sales/auctions channels (ebay, etsy etc...) it's possible to find bezels of this type or specimens with already partially compromised chrome. I hope I was helpful...
