A year or so ago I became aware of Erika's 'Marine Nationale' straps, developed for and by the French "Nageurs de combat" or Combat Divers - modern reproductions of the straps used by the French MN Divers. She had sourced original NOS elastic parachute strap/webbing as used by the MN in the 1970's, so combining that with the correct hardwear Erika has made a strap that is a must have for a military style Dive watch.
At the time the MN straps were introduced they would only work with watches equipped with remove-able spring bars, a watch with fixed lug bars was a no-go.
I contacted Erika just before Christmas and said to Erika that I wanted a strap - but could one be engineered to fit a watch with fixed lugs, she said it was not a problem.....so I had to have one....Obviously!
The color of the parachute strap is perfect.
...the patina of the hardware matches the matte finish of the case perfectly.
...a 'How to' Shot...So fixed lug afficianados, now you have no excuse. Erika is your go to - Erika's Originals.
Cheers - Longstride.
