    Radical strap for Airman? Or just out of bounds?

    http://www.timefactors.com/tfstrap.htm

    Anyone tried a carbon or a rally strap like these on a Stowa Airman?

    I'm not sure if its radical or sacriligious?

    Well, I don't have an 8-8.5 inch wrist so it wouldn't be a good choice for me, but it certainly doesn't offend me. Straps, like other things, ought to work for the people who wear them. On the other hand, did ANYBODY understand Bjork's swan dress???

    You have to fell comfortable with the combination. I´d stick to leather.

    Here's my FO with carbon/leather strap from Don Ginsler. I absolutely LOVE this strap.

    In tan canvas it might look good. At that price, it's kind of risk free to try it out.

    While it may technically fit a 8.5" wrist with a large enough watch, you're probably going to be using the last hole and there will be little or nothing of the end fitting past the keeper.

    Measure the straps that you have. I think a 115/75 is pretty common - and too short for me with my 8.25-8.5" wrists - and that's on larger watches as well.

    well, i went for a slightly different option and ended up with a Di Modell Chronissimo. Not arrived yet but always seems to be highly regarded for quality.

    Those are beautiful in the pictures. Haven't seen on in real life though.
