After getting a little bit tired of wearing my AT on only the rubber, I started looking into other options. Unfortunately the bracelet wasn't really an option, so my mind went towards the Velcro option. I managed to pick one up on here, and it arrived a few months ago. I would like to say I loved it, but unfortunately I was underwhelmed, and it sat in a drawer. For the price, I would have expected something a bit more substantial, as the narrow width of it just didn't really feel right for such a large watch head.
Fast forward a few months, and I contacted Carl at GasGasBones straps, and gave him some sizes to think about. I wanted to have a wider backing, and yellow stitch to contrast, and it had to fit the OEM end links I had removed from the Velcro. I settled on the BRV2 strap, and off he set to work, and I received it the other day. What a transformation! I love it - the fit and quality is excellent, and it is extremely ccomfortable. It's a bit difficult to photograph, but when the sun comes out, I will try again!
