    Militare Automatico + Toshi strap

    Hi everyone,

    I picked up a 10 Anni Militare Automatico off of a fellow WUS member about a month ago and waited until now to post since I wanted to give you guys a bit more than pics of a stock watch. Once I had paid for the watch, I promptly emailed Rich at Toshi Straps and ordered 2 new straps. Upon Rich's excellent recommendations, I went with the following:

    Strap1: Papaya leather with grey stitching and a titanium thumbnail buckle
    Strap2: Havana leather with red stitching and a brushed pre-v buckle

    All I have to say is a couple of things: I love this watch. I thought it looked great on the black Kodiak / red stitch, but the Toshi straps really make a difference. If anyone is looking for straps, I can't say enough good things about Rich @ Toshi.

    Secondly, that buckle side screw bar is a bugger to get off! Do I need to buy one of those Bergeon 6730 bases to get this off cleanly?? Why can't Anonimo make retrofit allen head screwbars?

    I think I've now caught the Anonimo bug since I'm trying to figure out the next Anonimo to purchase

    Anyways, enjoy the pics. The strap on the watch is the Payaya with grey stitch.

    Both look great, nice choices! I can't decide which one looks better, so I guess that's good. Wear them well and thanks for sharing!

    Wow! Great straps!

    Love them both, but the papaya & grey stitch "sings"!

    Hi everyone,
    Glad you guys enjoy the pics. One thing though -- I actually put on the "tail" side strap upside down! The "underside" (really the top) is actually much, much nicer. Apologies to Rich for misrepresenting his work. I'm going to correct it and put up some revised pics. Guess I need to note down "not a stickler for details" in my next performance review :)

    No problem, Ken. In many ways it's actually a bit of a compliment that you thought the back was tidy enough to show at the front

    Glad you like them

    The pics have been revised. You'll notice the lighting conditions were slightly different, but more importantly, you should be able to see a difference in workmanship.

    All the best - Ken
