    Some history. The watch dates from the brief period at the end of the Soviet Union when the US and USSR were allies

    I know the USSR(which does not exist anymore) and the US were enemies.

    but doesnt it seem ironic for the former USSR actually commemorating former-Enemy "soldiers" or counter-productive.

    But anyways, nice Zulu to match the watch, it has a great military look to it.
    I grew up in the "Cold War" era. But that was a long time ago. Back then (when this watch was made) and now it was/is all about commercialism and marketing. Please read on...

    I just cut off the 'spare' bit that normally goes under the watch, and heat sealed the cut end with a match (low tech for me! )

    Then I sized the long end for my wrist, gripping the strap between 2 coins as others have suggested and using sharp scissors. Heat sealed with another match
    If you optimize the manufacturing method and hurry quite a bit, you might even spare one match. You might have to use one of those extra long matches for igniting fireplaces, though.

    Thanks, emoscambio! Cheers for your suggestion to improve the efficiency of my NATO modding. Who knows how many forests of matchsticks we will save globally as watch fans flock to try this out

    These are mine.

    I don't like the newer dearer ones because the main thing that makes these watches so amazing is their price.





    The next one is my favourite case shape

    I took a lot of pictures, and plan to write up how I made the strap though.
    I just finished the article:

    Surprised how well (IMO anyway) a mesh strap complements an ashtray bezel Dirskie. Not a big fan of the ashtray but after trying this, I may reconsider.

    I notice some watches have a brass finish, have these been de-chromed? and if so is that hard to do?
