    Vintage Strap for my Stowa FO: yeah of neah ?

    I needed something to do this morning while home sick with pneumonia, so i took a 24mm Ammo strap i had sitting around with no home, took the stitching out, cut it down to 22mm, burnished the edges,put leather conditioner on it to darken the fresh cut sides, tried my hand at stitching for the first time, and wound up with an interesting strap.

    What do you think: should it stay, or should it go ?

    Excellent & perfect combo

    It will even look better as it darkens with time and your body's oils.

    Excellent choice.

    If you get bored of the strap, send me a PM and I'll give it a new home.

    Looks very vintage, but I don't know if it's comfortable?

    As for comfort, it is wonderful as the leather is very soft & flexible.
    So far i am enjoying it :)

    I wear this type of strap with my Panerai watches all the time, and IMO they are far more comfortable than your average strap.
