I have two Russian watches and the crown stripped in a very short time, they must use a very cheap metal. However there is a fix for this. If you can get the back open and release the stem (with most russian movements it is a small pin you press), Next, unscrew the crown tube and file the threads totally off. Then you will have to file the stem about 1 or two mm. In the end, you no longer have a screw down crown but it at least you save the watch.
