    I have amended the review to include weights on the three included straps. Not because I care about weight, but others might. And, more important, a new kitchen scale just arrived and I had to test it. ;)

    Been wearing this on the NATO and switched back with the baseball glove strap.

    Re: Review: Magrette Moana Pacific Professional Black & Steel

    I specifically signed up to WUS to soak up every picture of the MPP until mine arrives. :) so, hi everyone! I ordered the black one, the blue lume and the play between polished and brushed surfaces did it for me. My dirty little secret - not only did I order the tan strap with white stitching from Dion, but also a slew of other straps, I think 4 altogether. And I don't even know if I will like the watch yet. I think, I might have a bigger strap problem than a watch problem.

    I. Can't. Wait. Especially since other US and specifically Arizona forum members got theirs already.

    Impressive review!!! Magrette is probably one of the strongest brands among micros. My first Magrette was a Moana Pacific Diver. Since then, as seen here, the progression has been spectacular...
    Regards and thanks for this splendid review.

    Amazing and very detailed review. If it was you who took the pictures for Dion, then you're directly responsible for me ordering the MPP black the moment I saw it. I have a hard time waiting for mine to arrive, so I calm myself by reading through this review at least once a day. :)

    Re: Review: Magrette Moana Pacific Professional Black & Steel

    I have seen it mentioned in a couple of different locales that the lug-to-lug has changed on the MPP Black and Steel, and I really don't know how that started. Although I'm guessing it has to do with the changes made to better accommodate the new integrated rubber strap and ensure a tight fit across the case. The only difference I am aware of is a tiny shift of the pin holes, which in turn brings the strap in nice and snug.

    Below are caliper measurements of both the MPP Steel and Blue, where you can see the lug length is the same. That 0.1mm difference is a function of the caliper's sensitivity as I tried to get the teeth tight without slipping under while positioning for a photo. If I'm holding with both hands and torquing in the teeth they both read 53.1mm.

    Hopefully that helps clarify.

    As a follow up to the list of RIOS1931 straps I provided earlier I assembled the following for reference. From left to right pictured are:

    - Smooth black
    - Smooth navy
    - Classic brown
    - Stone or slate
    - Slate or stone (can never remember which is which)
    - Burnt maroon

    These happen to be the 24mm sizes, tapering to 22mm which accepts the Magrette deployant. The 22mm lug width versions are untapered so do as well... which I love. For whatever reason not all of these colors are available in the 22mm size. Not pictured here is burnt chestnut, which is glorious, shown here on the Waterman...

    I have received a few questions on which straps are shown on some of these photos, figured I'd make it easy with direct links. Aside from the heavier Magrette leather I almost always wear RIOS1931 for Panatime. These are superb straps in every regard and look terrific on the Moana Pacific (and other Magrette pieces.) What I particularly like is that the 24mm tapers to 22mm and so I always use the Magrette deployant. Even better is that the 22mm straps are untapered so stay at 22mm and still accept the clasp. They're nicely padded so stand up to the case size, and likewise sit near flush to the tops of the lugs. But they also break in well and are comfortable, holding the form of your wrist. They're not cheap, but also not crazy expensive. If you like this Panerai-style of strap they're worth checking out.

    These are the ones I rotate:

    Black: NEW ITEM-24mm RIOS1931 for Panatime Black Genuine Vintage Leather Watch Strap with White Stitching for Panerai 24/22 114/82 (this is the smooth black leather, there is a distressed version as well that I have not seen in the flesh)

    Stone: NEW ITEM-24mm RIOS1931 for Panatime Stone Genuine Vintage Leather Watch Strap with White Stitching for Panerai 24/22 114/82 (I have the Slate and Dark Brown distressed as well but frankly I'm hard pressed to tell the difference)

    Burnt Maroon: NEW ITEM-24mm RIOS1931 for Panatime Burnt Maroon Genuine Vintage Leather Watch Strap with White Stitching for Panerai 24/22 114/82 (my personal favorite, looks out of this world on PVD black cases)

    Light Suede Brown: NEW ITEM-24mm RIOS1931 for Panatime Light Suede Brown Genuine Vintage Leather Watch Strap with White Stitching for Panerai 24/22 114/82 (softer look and feel)

    Burnt Chestnut: NEW ITEM-24mm RIOS1931 for Panatime Burnt Chestnut Genuine Vintage Leather Watch Strap with White Stitching for Panerai 24/22 114/82 (another favorite, very rich looking, unreal on the Vantage/bronze cases)

    Classic Brown: NEW ITEM-24mm RIOS1931 for Panatime Classic Brown Genuine Vintage Leather Watch Strap with White Stitching for Panerai 24/22 114/82 (this is what is pictured on the shots above, makes the rounds on both the MPP Black and Steel)

    Navy: NEW ITEM-24mm RIOS1931 for Panatime Navy Genuine Leather Watch Strap with White Stitching for Panerai 24/22 114/82 (looks great with the MPP Blue, the only one I wear it with)


    There are several others as well. I'm not a green guy but there is an olive that I bet would kill on the All Black.
