    Looks good to me...I think (but don't know) that a Bund has a leather piece that only extends across the top of the wrist, whereas the Kitchener extends around to the back.

    Somebody please correct me if I am wrong...

    Here's the "Kitchener" straight out of the horse's mouth. Hope it shows up well enough to read. The prices are enlightening.

    these bund straps are very good in hot days, the sweat has not chance to reach the watch

    Hi Adam,

    The advert is from a publication called "The Army and Navy Register", dated July 28 1917.
    I thought interesting that the gun metal finish was an extra charge.
