Mine stopped srewing down and my watchsmith couldn't fix it and good luck getting parts from Russia. Shame too as I really liked the watch.

It is 45mm, 22mm lugs, and mineral crystal.

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.

I mean, not swimming but is there a way to throw a gasket on there for at least some protection?

You can wear it the way it is, just the crowjn protrudes a bit. It's okay during the dry winter months.....

it's intended to seal against the crown-tube, but given how much it protrudes...i'm not sure there's much sealing going on!
