    FO Order Form Strap Question

    I was filling out my order form today, and noticed that the strap choices for the FO model are light or dark brown. I thought one of the options was black with white stitching, so I went back to the pictures and looked again. It appears to be black, and the other appears to be brown.

    Is this just a lighting issue with the photo, or is there a black and brown strap option? If it is dark brown, I sure could not tell from the pictures.

    Anyone have one that can shed some light on this?

    Different style straps

    You can choose old style or original. The Original strap has a closed design, hence the difference and the difference in color in the image.

    i had the same question myself earlier today. i guess the "black" is actually a very dark brown and the light brown is light brown. i chose the FO dark brown strap.

    Thanks Glen,

    I understand the difference between the strap models. My question is that the order form says you can get the closed strap (the FO, not the old style), in light or dark brown. In all of the pictures, the strap on the watch looks black to me. Maybe I am color blind.

    Yes, the one on the watch does look like a very deep, dark chocolate brown. When you look at the black old style strap, then the original strap on the watch, you can see the difference, albeit slight.

    Since I have MO LE II on order as well, I'm thinking that the black strap with deployant that ships with it might be a nice option for the FO.
