    real nice original -and i am into straps and i dont think i have seen a strap like that with the clasp -must find one for myself -really envy you that one -think that little verdigris patina just makes it more special!and i must agree with DRAGONDAN been some really nice examples shown -i do hope they continue

    Thanks shameless,I was looking for vintage Glycine and ran into this, didnt miss. The strap was added value really.If i see one will let u know, is its not a Glycine;)

    If you like this strap, you might want to see this post from Marrick, he posted something similar with a serial on the clasp here: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/my-...cs-744753.html

    WWW Record; Domino flieger, and Marguerite from 1916 - which is on a much later Bonklip-type strap.

    Cheers. Bonklip straps are extremely comfortable and practical to wear - I have several. Quite a few on UK ebay at present BTW. The reason I have left this one on (its a derivative brand, not a real Bonklip) is that the interesting engraving on the back of the watch would be hidden by a 'bund' type military strap. Only a few WISs would know its not period correct.
