    I have a suggestion regarding straps >>>

    The straps that come with the FO are simply superb IMO, both in quality and looks. Still, some guys aren't very keen of the rivets.

    What do you think of making available a version of those straps with a stiching line replacing the rivets? I think that would be a sucess.

    There are plenty of aftermarket options that will satisfy nearly any taste, including the one you mention. I don't think Stowa ought to worry about supplying a wider variety of straps. I'd prefer they just continue to focus on making superb watches (and more FOs in particular).

    Cheers,

    I agree with Paulo,
    an optional strap without rivets, leather loops (no s/s ones), 20 mm at the buckle would be the top, IMHO...

    Please, Stowa, like any other watch company, doesn't make straps, just orders them from strap companies.

    Good point Engi, being a dressier version the ss loop shouldn't be there.

    And that's exactly why there is absolutely no reason for them to offer any other strap options. You can get them more cheaply directly from the companies that make them rather than having Stowa serve as the middle-man.

    I like the riveted straps. I am just wondering if the napa strap is worth the additional cost.

    If you can get me the name of their supplier of the FO straps I'd be grateful. Love the material and would love to have a dressier strap like the brown and maybe the dark grey with white stiching.

    Concerning strap for pilot watches, the offer on the market is not so much wide, this is the reason for which Paulo proposes to have, with the same material, a more dressier version of such a strap.
