    Picture ZVEZDA "type 18" (russian LIP)

    Previous thread :
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/zve...ml#post3755473



    I had a problem with this watch : the fixed lugs are small (16mm), and because of their shape, even smaller near the case (14mm).

    Not easy finding a proper strap, but I finally ordered a 16mm Cliffhanger :

    Watch band Cliffhanger 16mm dark red leather pad

    and here is the result :

























    With my previous 18mm cliffhanger ^_^ (another Russian : Vostok cal.2214)










    I'm very pleased with this solution

    I believe the T-18 was meant to be a woman's watch but now it is dripping in testosterone; kudos!

    Thanks Seele ! Well, maybe not dripping, but it certainly adds a drop of it !

    Well the T.18 was initially a man's watch (even if its size is tiny). But believe it or not, even with a regular 16mm strap, it doesn't look that odd on the wrist.

    The modern T.18 shares roughly the same size @ 38,5 x 21,2 mm
    and is advertised as unisex.

    Looking at the picture… I realize the lugs are much thinner So maybe there's at least a 18mm strap on the new model ?


    But it's really easier to wear with the cliffhanger indeed

    Exclamation Zvezda

    Tiny watch (14-16mm lugs) + cliffhanger strap = winning combo !

    This russian bund participates to the vintage look of the watch, I think

    Picture ZVEZDA on 18mm Cliffhanger

    After the experiment with the ukrainian bund, I tried with another 18mm strap.
    Those Cliffhanger straps have thin (& soft) fasteners, so I managed to fit them in the 14/16mm lugs of the ZVEZDA
