I'm relatively new to the world of Oris, but i've recently found myself interested on the Big Crown ProPilot GMT. I like the fabric strap, and i'm absolutely liking the deployant clasp mechanism. I think it's a very neat solution.
That said i have a few questions/concerns that I hope current owners of the PP can help with :
1. How does the fabric strap hold up over time? I've seen reviews which have commented that the fabric has started to show signs of light 'fraying' despite the watch being relatively new.
2. Given that it is fabric (with a leather base), it will eventually need replacing. Are there aftermarket fabric or leather straps that can work with the rather propriety deployant clasp? I would hate to have to give up the clasp if I chose to go aftermarket.
3. If the only option is to replace the strap with an Oris strap, does anyone know the cost of the strap?
