I always but my watches on bracelet when available but I like strap changes too. I've worn my 65 on white rubber, grey rubber, black NATO, grey NATO but the tan strap I wanted I was never able to get my hands on. I saw a pic of a Deauville on a Hirsch Golf strap and it looked amazing!! But it seems that they discontinued that strap and I can find it any more.
So that forced my hand and I had to break out my kit I had stored for years and make one. I must say I do like the results!!!
I liked it so much I decided to make a new wallet too.
