    Leather/Canvas ...All the Way from La Serena, Chile

    I thought I would treat myself to a new strap for, Christmas. I saw an ad by Martu' straps that featured a Canvas/leather strap that looked interesting, so I gave it a try. It took less than a month for them to make it by hand and get it to me in Maine.
    I was going for that 'Rustic - hand-made' look, and it delivers that in spades! I tried it on several watches, a Stowa Black Partitio and a Laco A dial Pilot. I should mention that I have very nice straps for both watches already, but this was a low cost, less than $40 expenditure, that I was sure would work with quite a few of my timekeepers.

    First thoughts .. solid construction, quality materials, neat stitching, very subtle colors on both leather and canvas. ideal for any field, pilot or tool watch for sure.
    On the 1938 Stowa Partitio it seemed a little too rustic , but this watch is all about understatement in the first place, so it is not a bad match. The Laco fit was even better in my opinion.

    I seemed stiff when I first received it, but it only took one night on the holder to take a wrist shape and is quite comfortable on day two.

    All in all, a well made strap that will match up to many watches for about half the price of similar straps.

    A nice looking rustic strap and I do like the leather and canvas combo. It looks good on both the Laco and Partitio - for me, it kind of makes the Partitio more of a field watch.

    Enjoy your Martu leather strap.
