They have not exactly just come in, but it's taken time for them to be attached to watch so I thought I might post some pics anyway



First up BJ straps Swedish Mause ammo leather circa World War I/II (okay Brian did not lend any more info, sorry). Anyway it's on my Magrette, and it doesn't really suit- it's actually earmarked for my Stolas Naviator (when it gets here!). It's a very raw strap but very pliable- love the original markings




















Second one is from Combat Straps, the leather from Eastern Europe (Aaron offered no other specifics). This is the complete opposite. really quite refined with a small taper. Enjoy the pics!
