    The lugs are 19mm wide, but if the strap you want doesn't come in 19mm then 20mm will usually look fine

    Enjoy the new watch!

    Re: The Carrera Club

    Thanks WI proud. I ordered a spare strap just incase. I read somewhere these straps (being a little unique) can be very hard to find in a couple of years and given the Canadian elements that its exposed to... I didn't know how long it would last as this is my first TG with a leather strap. I used to have a Timex with a leather strap and that started fraying within 3 years.

    My all-time favorite watch, the best thing about this is there is no anti-reflective coating. It gives the watch such a clean look! Wear it in good health!

    No.
    The 41mm Carrera cases have a 20mm lug space.
    The OEM straps are 20mm at lug to 18mm at deployant.
    The 39mm Carrera cases were the ones that had 19mm lug space and I recall correctly, were also 18mm at deployant.

    Are you after OEM leather or would any third party do because if you're going OEM for strap and buckle then both items are not exactly cheap.
    There are two deployants that were used for 41mm Carrera and you can't use leather straps designed for one buckle on the other as there is a difference in the thickness of leather used.

    FC5013 is the older version that uses thinner leather
    FC5037 is the newer version that uses thicker leather

    Because FC5037 is the newer one, there aren't many third part leather strap manufacturers who cater for the thicker leather required for use with it so it will be easier, unless you go 100% with OEM products or 100% third-party, to get the FC5013 and then any old third party leather.

    He has a 39mm Carrera (CAR2211) which has 19mm lugs

    I previously owned the black dial version and went with a 20mm strap I quite liked after measuring the lugs with callipers, of course it bunched up slightly!

    Re: The Carrera Club

    Interesting.
    I was always under the impression that these watches simply used existing 41mm chronograph cases.
    I stand corrected.

    It strikes me as being as slightly peculiar though; that what is essentially a budget outlet store version of the watch uses a proprietary case.

    edit: ....or they could've had a bunch of the older 39mm cases in stock.
    guess I did the reverse of 1+1 and got 3.

    Before selling my CAR2210, I received a message from a potential buyer saying the model was not sent to outlets due to "similarity with the 1887" but was actually intended for the Japanese market until the tragic earthquake and recession.

    Maybe we'll just never know!

    Re: The Carrera Club

    I've only seen these as being referred to being sold in UK outlet stores.
    Not sure about origins though. Can't see the whole "Japan" thing seeing as the Heritage was intended as a stop-gap product for the Asian markets while the 1887 supplies is limited.

    But any ways, I've always thought this was a good looking watch and 39mm makes it that little bit more intriguing.
    I was looking at getting one of the older 39mm Carrera Chronos but I didn't like the date at 4.
