    Re: Elektronikas still made in 2017?

    The one on the top is a new model, from the 21st century.

    The 55 is a vintage Soviet model, or better the most modern Soviet digital watch back in time, they usually had Elektronika branded bracelet, rubber or leather (that looks weird to me). Usually Soviet watches were sold without bracelet besides few cases (Elektronika-1s had standard bracelets).

    Personally I will try to get a Casio steel band or use the leather strap I think Technochas ships with the watch, but if you check on their websites they also sell bracelets, including some NOS POljot.

    Elektronikas still made in 2017?

    Thanks! I knew the 01 is a more modern version. Still looks pretty old school though. :)

    The watches ship without straps, at least that what Surok55 told me when I asked.

    I hadn’t noticed the bracelets on their site. Might pick one of those up as well.

    Yes, all post Soviet companies didn't retool much therefore the new products look dated as well.

    However as I am on business trip I got this Casio that is also old school and still in production:




    The straps/bracelet page is here:

    Electronika-55 in soviet times was sold without bracelet or strap. Just the original packaging (plastic box or blister) were designed for watch itself, without strap. In attachment is photo of NOS 52 and 53 from soviet times, 55 was packed the same way.

    Most typically the strap would have been purchased separately and would most likely be leather. I think either of these would look great on a thin steel bracelet. Or for a more contemporary look you might want to consider a Perlon or a resin strap matched to the dial colour.

    I am going to use Vostok leather straps on mine. I just ordered 5 more of Vostok straps as they are really my favorite straps.

    No worries. See that 'И' logo? That is for Integral, the company responsible for both Elektronika and Kamerton brands. It's the real deal.

    The bracelet looks good.

    Have you identified the 5 melodies yet?

    My son has worn through two straps already on his Casio F91W and is now using a Vostok strap. Do you know a good place to buy them?

    I have been buying from phototime1980 at ebay. She is good seller. She is also having all kind of rubber straps.

    When it comes to stock Vostok leather straps, I replace the ring with an own made ring glued with better glue. The strap itself seems to last very long, but the stock ring often breaks.
