    Stowa FO - new shoes

    Well, my new shoes for my FO came in yesterday.

    I wear Panerai quite a bit so I've gotten used to a nice chunky strap. Given that the FO is a good sized watch, I figured I'd try out a Panerai style strap on it. I'm pretty happy with the way it looks, and I find it sits better on my wrist now too with a heavier strap balancing off the heft of the watch itself.

    A few quick snaps to share...

    Captain, looks great.
    And, what is that strap?

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the comments.

    I had the strap custom made by Greg Stevens, who has made straps for my Panerai watches in the past.

    fyi, I have a ~7" wrist but because the strap is 5mm thick it needs to be a little longer than standard. You can see how it fits on my wrist and I went with a 75/135 length, although I like a bit of "tail" on a strap like this, and wear it a little loose on the wrist.
