    Smile Fireman on new strap

    While I absolutely love the solid feel and look of the steel strap, I was a little uncomfortable for everyday wear.

    So got this, Hadley Roma 22 mm black leather, with orange stitching and edging. Wears great and the colours are a darn close match to the dial.

    what do you think?

    I too prefer the Fireman on leather. You picked a winner! Enjoy!

    Very Sharp!

    For what it's worth, Ball does make/sell a factory black leather strap with orange stitching, if you ever feel the need to own an OEM strap to match. It is the strap that comes standard with the EMII Classic w/orange sweep hand. I believe that a similar strap can be had in black/blue and black/yellow. The OEM strap does not have the cool orange sides like the Hadley Roma.

    Here are two bad pics of the OEM strap:

    Thanks everyone.:thanks

    I wasn't aware Ball had straps like this. Perhaps something to add to their site? Certainly wouln't have minded an original Ball strap.

    It just hit me . . . the OEM strap is 20mm. It would've been too narrow for your watch. Besides, I really like the orange sides on your HR strap!

    My dad just got 40mm Fireman yesterday. He is 64 and not a flashy guy...
