    seeking an advice on a thick (4-5 mm) high quality canvas for a large and hefty watch

    gonna get seriously wet with my Ennebi Toscana Bronzo on...
    swimming, snorkeling in salt water
    Isofrane is an obvious choice, but I want a canvas option too... just a personal preference.
    Any leads, experiences? would appreciate pictures!
    and the watch is very large and heavy, therefore I'm thinking 5mm strap thickness and maybe something less pliable ???

    I have one canvas strap from KRST strap and one from Gunny, and have been very happy with them. Got another Gunny incoming. They are all not 5mm thick though, but as it's custom made you could just ask how thick you want it to be.




    And yeah, bronze looks great on canvas.

    thanks for the tip! I'll e-mail Peter with inquiry. I have his straps already and am very happy with his creations.

    I owned a Para Strap from steveostraps. It was well made and about the thickness you're looking for. I wore it on a 44mm dive watch but don't know how it would hold up in the water. He's a great guy to deal with so it might be worthwhile for you to check out.

    thank you everyone for all the suggestions!
    now I have not one, but two incoming: a leather backed canvas from Gunny for everyday use and travels; and a rolled canvas from Micah for going into water, sports, outdoors, conditioning drills in the gym etc.
    And here is the watch, currently on Delaurian strap. At 47mm it really needs something beefy to roll on!
