    Straps for MO LE

    Hi,

    Thinking about changing the strap on my MO LE and was wondering if anyone else has done so. If you don't mind can you post what strap you went with.

    Cheers

    Peter

    Europelli Oxblood Shell Cordovan strap.
    The problem with this watch is it looks marvelous no matter what strap you wear with it. I am addicted to finding a perfect strap for it but,

    "I still haven't found what I am looking for."

    Next one under the radar - Dornblueth genuine alligator strap..

    When you replaced the strap, did you transfer the deployant clasp to the new one?

    I have two watches with this type of clasp and while I do like them for a few reasons, ultimately, they just don't seem to fit right. I haven't tried repositioning them to be one notch smaller but I am thinking that may be too tight.

    Anyway, nice stap!
    My little watch collection:
    Dornblüth & Sohn Regulator
    Sinn EZM-1 LE
    Stowa 80th Anniversary Marine Original (MOLE)
    Alpina Avalanche Extreme Regulator PVD 42mm

    Gone but not forgotten:
    Schauer Kulisse Edition 12
    Stowa Marine Original LE II
    Stowa Marine Original
    A few not really worth mentioning!

    I sold the deployant clasp that came with the watch. I found it difficult to use and not a good design, e.g., you'd have to find a small size flat head screw driver to lock and unlock it to adjust the strap to a proper position. Plus if you want to swap it onto another strap, the "tongue" from where you release the screw is so close to its "cover" that you'll have hard time not to make a long "scratch" on the strap when you take out that buckle. I had it tried on two straps and both got a long scratch.

    Yup, it's such a nice watch and very beautiful. It is not only a dress watch but can be all around one too, at least I wear it all the time. Any strap will look good on it. I prefer an alligator one though.

    Well I just ordered a Dunthorp Honey Aligator Strap so the wait begins. I'm also looking into the Hirsch Riva Strap maybe the dark brown one.

    Cheers

    Hmmmmm, this one is the "honey" alligator strap. It fits the MO LE very well. A very nice pair of shoes for an extraordinary elegant lady.
