    Pic request - Anyone try a sailcloth strap on MO?

    I have an MO incoming and am thinking about aftermarket straps. Just wondering if anyone has tried a sailcloth type strap on the MO.

    Sounds logical

    "Marine" & "Sailcloth"

    but...



    looks like it might be a bit "rustic" for the 'sophistication' of the MO...

    so, I also would like to see the results...

    yeah, the one I'm getting is all brushed so I'm hoping that it can match. I feel the croc straps, although probably the best combo, is a bit too dressy for my needs.

    Ive kept mine on the original leather and been quite happy. If you do a search (maybe you have) there should be a couple of threads that show a variety of straps. Heck the MO even looks good on the Stowa mesh.

    Looking forward to seeing pics when yours arrives.

    I wish my incoming was a MOLE... but alas... it's just a MOSE (standard edition). The MOLE dial looks awesome.

    not sure what sailclotch is but here is a carbon fiber texture on Hirsch Carbon strap




    particular lighting condition really brings out the blue and plasticky look of the strap, but actually most of the time it looks very dark and muted... which matches the pointers (only blue at certain angles)


    i also put a black Hirsch Professional on here which is a twin-pad strap that has a nice sporty look to it...but it looks and feel very chintzy

    yeah that MOLE is awesome. is that dial enamel? that would be second after my FO. I'm hoping one of the new watches in the fall is an enamel dial MO. my wife and my wallet aren't hoping for it, but i am...
