I bought this about 2009 or so. Still runs, very comfortable on this simple canvas strap.
... And will run for a long time.
In my expiriance, dont use it in saltwater because the crown rusts easily.
That vostok will run and run. Outlive all of us I expect!
I've worn mine in the sea and rinsed it off afterwards. No sign of rust!
I'll be ordering one of these just as soon as Russia is out of Ukraine, so interesting!
