As I have stated previously I know have three Vostok Amphibias.

The watch, case, and bezel are highly polished stainless steel. I like this on the scuba dude, but it doesn't look so swell on the latest Black Dial model I obtained.

The change-out took less than four minutes, first put a piece of scotch tape between case and bezel, pop off the bezel with the proper tool (which I have), take the bezel and put it face down on a wet Scotchbrite "Green" scrubbing pad, and about four or five rotations while pressing down on it and Voila!

It doesn't have that chrome-plated car bumper appearance anymore and is much more presentable!

Not really, the white dial one refused to come off, so that one stays stock!

It always amazes me how this can change the look of a watch Chaz ! :jaw:

Have often seen it done, but never tried it, but it really makes
a watch look phenomenal, and almost more tool-like honestly.
What's neat is had thought it looked nice before, but now it
looks great sir. Well done MacGyver..I mean Chaz ! :thumb::thumb:
