    Supplied on a thin mock-croc 20mm strap that left a gap in the 21mm lugs.
    My only 22mm strap that would flex enough to fit looks pretty good imo, but may get changed to tan or blue, or grey.

    Even at 42mm case it looks a little small next to the 44mm Vodo.
    With the facets changing blue/black in the light each glance shows a different looking watch.
    (photos taken on a low light grey cloudy day so hopefully will be better in sunlight)

    As for the Strela... if MC don't already make the Strela they know a man who does...

    Thanks mate :)

    Ok not sleepless nights, but for the last few weeks agonising over which 3133 to get, and this too has been on my 'to get' list since first shown last year. Kept looking at my Strela and thinking 'how can I top this', never been too fond of the paddle hand versions untill the sand Strela (but that's in English), Julian sold out of the PI Strela quickly anyway.

    Maybe one of the last of the new 3133 models unless a saviour takes on the 31... production...can but hope.
    Need an MC Stum. like yours now...and an MC Amphib. ...

    A blue strap turned up for another, had to check it out....just to see ;)

    the shade is not bad imo , but far too thick at 6mm , and a good job I didn't get a 22mm as almost rigid.
    Prefer the light tan anyway.
    Tell you what, since getting the R7 a few weeks ago a lot of 20mm straps have come in ....just to see ;)
    Need to get a proper 22mm now to squidge into the 21mm lugs, the gap with a 20mm looks , well, odd.
