    Re: KOMANDIRSKIE lets see them.

    Hello. I am kinda new here and thought this would be a good thread to start in. I accidentally discovered this site/forum a few weeks ago and have been amazed by the number of watches, history and knowledge here. I have two Komandirskie watches that were given to me 20+ years ago; as birthday presents. I was born in Russia, but raised in the USA...and received such gifts whenever family/friends came over to visit. Both of these watches have survived a tremendous amount of abuse (got them when I was 12 years old)...and have been on my wrist in middle school, high school, college and graduate school. I proudly wear them to work and an now beginning to learn about proper care and maintenance.

    Just a quick Instagram shoot. I gotta be honest with you, I hated the strap. This piece of leather on the lugs is loosely tied to the strap and watch will never stand firm on it. I think I need to get another cuff leather strap. Any recommendations for someone who's got very slim wrists?

    Very nice - I love the Paratrooper with the brown strap, that's a great looking combination! I ordered a similar strap for my "Zakaz" Komandirskie (dark brown dial) over a month ago but it hasn't arrived yet

    Thanks mate I used to have it on a NATO strap when I wore it as a daily watch. Since this paratrooper is literally the first watched I owned (as a gift at age 12)...I want to spare it from daily abuse...and thus it is now more of a dress watch. To me, that natural brown strap classes it up and also plays of the dial colors. I was lucky to find the trap in a local watch shop.

    I wear my Komandirskie as a dress watch as well... Because they have a really slim handwound movement they fit under a cuff much better than my dive watches

    Waited a long time to find one with a good dial... just snagged this one in Germany:

    Looks good on pictures, just some rub marks from a previous strap on the back (I can live with it)

    Yes that's an excellent looker. I was watching that myself too, but I'm not able to tell originals from franken with this model, so I let it pass. Wear it in good health

    Thanks! I'd say dial/hands/case are original. Crown, not sure.
