    Strap for Poljot Journey..

    Anyone know what size strap the Poljot Journey uses? I've checkout some sites but they never metion sizes. Was just curious if some of my spare straps will also fit on the watch.

    :thanks

    Re: Strap for Poljot Journey..

    adding my 0,02 € (or 2cents if you prefer ):
    BTW, what sort of straps do you guys have/would you recommend on that Red Gold Journey?

    The reason is, I have the same watch, which I like A LOT, but am not sure I have found the right strap combo. Let me explain:

    - it came with the standard Poljot black leather/white stitch strap. I liked it, and it feels very nice, but the black looked a bit too "stiff" (esthetically speaking) next to the soft Red Gold. Too much contrast and too much of a martial, aviator spirit which IMHO does not fit the softer elegance of the RG

    - so, I switched to a strange-patterned, strange-colored real croc (I will post pix one of these days): not really brown, nor grey, in-between, a very strange off-color, with a very irregular grain pattern. Now I like it much better: its exotic, rarely-seen, slightly decadent look matches the excentricty of - hey, let's face it - a russian "aviator" chrono in Red Gold.

    So, whattsmatter? Welllll, now I was thinking of trying to go back to the pared-down look of the original Poljot strap (which texture, once more, i find very comfortable), but in dark or light brown, which is exactly the strap you just posted. Buuuuut…now that I see it, I'm not sure that's what I want either . So, my question, after this excruciatingly irritating wishy-washy strap saga: How does this gold-brown look in real life? Is it an orginal Poljot? In other words, would you/have you considered changing it?

    ANyone has tried something else?

    Thumbs Up Re: Strap for Poljot Journey..

    I believe it's more classic on leather As I see, the 24h counter is working even if you don't use the chrono function. Am I right? If so, then it's perfect! :gold

    Yes, you're right. The 24 hour hand is independant of the chrono function.

    It is in fact the matching bracelet for the Journey. I got it from JL on eBay, user name is sonnenflasce. He has them as a buy it now item and sometimes he has one for auction. I paid about £20 on auction.

    Last question. Does 24h counter also work with the chrono? Or is it just like an ordinary 3133 chronograph?
