    Find out the return policy from the places that sell them. If they will let you return the straps, order both of them, then decide for yourself and return the one that you don't like.

    Thanks.. looks good. But i prefer red threads. check out the 3rd option I added - Di-Modell Chronissimo. What do you think about it?

    awhile back, Di-Modell was the oem manufacturer for some sinn leather straps. Not sure if they still are.

    I buy and enjoy straps from both C&B and Freda watch straps. Both offer good quality and excellent service. Cheers, Bill P.
