    Sinn 356 SPEZIALEDITION with Lipetsk strap

    This is my Sinn 356 SPEZIALEDITION released as a Japanese limited edition in 1996. It is cool to have one of the first batches of the iconic 356!

    I had this custom strap made by combat-straps.com to my design. I wanted something to tie in to the fact that this a German flieger without going ..... The Lipetsk fighter-pilot school was a secret training school for fighter pilots operated by the German Reichswehr at Lipetsk, Soviet Union, because Germany was prohibited by the Treaty of Versailles from operating an air force, and had to find alternative means to continue training and development for the future Luftwaffe.

    Great looking combo. Thanks for the potted history as well - I've always maintained that WUS will teach me something new on a regular basis.

    It is a nice strap, but I’d do without the interwar period text and Soviet emblem.

    Funnily enough I have that option: combat-straps.com accidentally sent me the same strap with no design and let me keep it. So if my tastes ever change I am ready!

    Sweet. So just out of curiosity. What are the traits that separate this one from a standard 356?
