    How Do You Like My New Europelli Strap?

    I thought this Europelli distressed leather strap really suited the Airman well. The original series of Europelli vintage bomber jacket straps sold out, but they are now making new ones using new leather that is distressed for a vintage look. Truth be told, I miss the rivets of the original Stowa strap, but I found the Stowa strap to be a bit stiff and uncomfortable. The Europelli is probably the most comfortable strap I have ever worn. The original Stowa strap uses a 20mm buckle, and the Europelli requires a 16mm buckle. On request, Jorg sent me a new 16mm buckle at no charge! Now that's customer service! (My overall experience ordering this "custom" watch from Stowa was a very, very pleasant one, and I look forward to ordering again!)

    What do you think?






    I ordered a Staib mesh bracelet that should be here in a few days, and I'll try it out when I receive it.

    I think it looks great. It is amazing how a strap can change the charecter of a watch.

    Not really a fan of the distressed look, but that is a combo where it fits very well!

    Looks good! I really like Drew's straps, most of which are for Panerai, but his classic strap line is very nice too
