Soviet watch crystal size list

Because this information is nearly impossible to find, I’ve made a list of Soviet watch glass sizes as far as I’ve personally replaced and confirmed them as fitting. Without this information it’s often necessary to buy 2 or 3 different sizes to find the one that fits. Even with this information there is sometimes 0.2mm variation in the same model, so take these sizes as a starting point.

Watch crystal sizes are commonly listed in units of 100µm (1/10th of a millimeter) so for example size 312 is 31.2mm. The term “crystal” or “glass” is conventionally used even though the Soviet watch lenses were always acrylic.

Chaika:

Chaika “red star”: crystal size = 312
but needs a crystal with a tension ring or it will look weird

Pobeda:

Many common models of Zim Pobeda: crystal size = 312
Pobeda “hockeypuck”: crystal size = 346
children’s pobeda: crystal size = 268

Raketa:

Raketa “24 hour”: crystal size = 362
Raketa “College”: crystal size = 362

Raketa “Rolex”: crystal size = 302
Raketa “Kopernik”: crystal size = 300 or 302, it seems to vary
