    Yes, I thought fixed lugs only but there seem to be many examples with spring bars.

    From '53 catalog showing two-part strap and mine with fixed lugs and home made open end two-part strap made by peeling and re-gluing. There are many new open end straps available to buy for use on fixed lug watches https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...raps&_sacat=0:

    Thank you, the 12 red and the model with metalic grey quadrants are constantly being presented with fixed lugs, even between other models with springbars though:

    That's very interesting! Can't imagine why that would be, you'd think they would use the same case.

    I would guess that the spring bars are a retrofit (and actually I didn't even know that this might be an issue) - maybe I will replace them with solid ones again, although I don't know how one does that.

    I think the case is the same. I've got a number of these little guys, and the proportion with fixed lugs vs. springbars seems to be pretty evenly split.

    As you mentioned before, I think it's just a matter of cutting a piece of metal to size (even a sturdy paperclip would work), then bending it into the holes in the lugs.

    I've received several vintage watches with clearly-homemade fixed bars. But I usually cut them out and use springbars as they're much more convenient.

    I've added a Raketa 2601 but this one is a little hard to get in good condition at a reasonable price, in my experience.

    This I've had for a bit. Given to me by a Russian friend of mine. Cleaned, oiled and back on the road. Dial is really funky and reflects like so it changes as you angle it in the light.
