Keeping things light for an afternoon off in the sunshine! I modified this standard 420 case Amphibia with a black bezel and chrome handset from Meranom and it's now my favourite diver. The Amphibia and H1 Dragonfly are always with me if I'm going to be near water with the possibility of a quick dip on the cards.

That Spyderco Dragonfly 2, really stands out nice.
One of my favourites. I love the bright yellow FRN of the Salt series!
Very nice watch. What model Vostok Amphibia is that? And is the bezel a custom mod?
It's model #420647 and yes, I switched the stock chrome bezel for a Meranom black bezel. I also swapped out the original handset for an all chrome set as the red second hand looked a little out of place after the bezel swap.
Thanks! I am always window shopping for my next watch. I have been eyeballing the Casio MDV106-1AV (not automatic) or the Seiko SKX007K (a bit pricey) for a summer/water watch. Thanks for cluing me to the Vostok Amphibia which I hadn't heard of before. It seems like a nice happy-medium.

I just googled the model # you mentioned out of curiosity, and found your Watchuseek post with the info on the bezel & hands too. Small world!
A small world indeed! If you are interested in going the Vostok route give 'Uke Vostok Amphibia' a google and you should be able to find the full review over on Watchuseek too. It should give you a bit of an idea of what to expect before you buy. They are a little rough and ready in the looks department, but they're solid divers and do the job of a no hassle summer/water watch very well. Cheap and cheerful! And if you're not into modding your own watches, many of the Meranom SE versions come already fitted with less 'quirky' bezels!
Oh, that Amphibia a beauty!
Thanks! It's amazing the difference a couple of little mods make.
Exactly my thoughts! The strap suits it perfectly! Although, is the bezel the original one or is it a custom?
All I ever seem to wear now are Eulit Perlons! I love NATOs but the perlons are so much comfier, easier to adjust and less bulky. No, the original bezel was the standard chrome red and black dot bezel. I got this black one separately from meranom.com. They usually have a few different types in that were made to fit the Amphibia cases. Pretty sure this one is the same as used on the black Neptune special edition and a few of the other SE models.
YOU SAID IT MY FRIEND, JUST DON'T FORGET THE NEWSPAPER OR PUZZLE BOOK AND A NICE COOL DRINK (ICE-T).
I do love a good crossword!
