Yes as the Beatles sang, I'm back in the USSR! or back to owning some affordable Russian fun! It's a happy day, a new watch arrived

I have owned the original and WUS special Edition Radio Room Amphibia and the 1967 reissue, but sold off all of my Russians a couple years back.

But thanks to Dave Murphy when I saw his reissue of the blue Amphibia that the 1967 was based upon, I ordered one & when the Radio Room from the same seller was in stock again I pounced. Clapping!

They're not as cheap as they used to be, but still a good value for the money IMHO. I like many took them off the OEM bracelet & straps and substituted straps. I have a mesh on its way from HK for the blue dial. I'm not sure the strap I have for the Radio room works so feel free to critique and provide any recommendations.

I took the Radio Room's OEM ruber strap off b/c the lugs stick straight out horizontally and the rubber was too stiff to conform to the curvature of my wrist. So I put on that supple leather strap designed for flieger watches. A word of caution for those interested in the 110 case - the lugs may make it difficult to wear if you have wrists smaller than 7" as it's like wearing a small plate on your wrist. Oops! I am confused
