    Some groovy new shoes for my 2801 LE.

    Liking the Stowa strap, but feeling a thicker one would also work, I ordered a Havana Brown strap with squared end and emerald green stitching from Richard at Toshi Straps. It arrived this week. After a little man-handling of it to soften it up, I put it on my Flieger. I think the dark brown goes very well, while the green stitching gives it a little 'cheek'. Anyway, here's some shots. Let me know what you think.

    I went for the duller green:


    Richard does top drawer stuff at very competitive prices - I have a number of them and my Stowas don't appear on anything else. The oem straps are a weak link, me thinks, and do not do the watches justice. Good choice and enjoy
