    So the story goes that this is reindeer leather from a shipwreck 200 years ago. The hides were found at the bottom of the sea fully preserved in deep mud. So a fitting strap for a dive watch I guess.

    Yeah, Micah laughed at me when I asked about water resistance of this leather. Apparently, it was in huge rolls, so only the outer couple of layers were wet, the inner hides were dry even after all that time.

    I love mine and just switched the Ploprof back to it since it's cooling down.

    Well, that's a story that should go over well at the Tiki bar after a dive. 200 years? If only the outer rolls were wet, I guess that means we don't have confirmation that these straps are water proof. Nonetheless, very cool. (Story and straps.)

    Whoa! What deployant clasp is that; the Omega? That's a really great look.

    I'm really loving this stargate on this inexpensive black leather nato.

    My Helson Shark Diver on a Hirsch Liberty:



    I originally bought that strap for my Hamilton Sunset, but put it on the Shark Diver as I couldn't deal with the stock strap's buckle. I hate these huge Panerai style buckles, they're so ....ing uncomfortable. I'm eventually going to get another Liberty (probably in a different color) so I can have one on both watches.

    A man's watch is a very cherished thing. You steal that, you might as well be stealing his soul.

    Looks like summer is over. Time to change back to the croc strap. It's like wearing a whole new watch!
    Just getting started.
