I bought a Victorinox Nite Vision watch a while ago. For those of you who don't know, these are great watches. Beautifully made with a Ronda quartz movement. What makes them special is the LED light attached, as well as the blue light that illuminates the dial. The LED works as a torch, and will also spell out SOS if necessary. Of course, it has a separate battery for these facilities, but it's still not a thick watch. What really attracted me was how attractive the dial was. Despite the fact it is not a cheap watch, the strap was rubbish. A black leather, but of poor quality. Victorinox no longer make the leather or rubber strap but the stainless bracelet is available at £140 ($170). In my opinion far to expensive. You see, a generic strap does not fit, and you can see this by the picture below. I emailed a few strap manufactures, but none were interested until I contacted Steveo straps, and sent him a diagram. He agreed to make one up for me at a cost of £45 + postage. I put the existing butterfly clasp on it myself. He told me to chose any leather or rubber I wanted. I went for the brown ostrich leather, which I believe goes well with the black dial. It arrived withing 10 days and looks brilliant.

That does look brilliant, as is the read. If you find yourself with down time, howabout a shot laid out flat, a blue lumi shot would be a nice too. It is a very attractive watch, the distress feature is interesting. Thank you for posting.

That is really something Mrs. Wiggles ! 👀 😎 Just that design would
seemingly leave yourwith limited options. So for them to create such
a nice, and special strap for you is phenomenal ! 🙂You can see that
cut-out section of the strap is perfect, and looks like it could of come
directly from VSA themselves. It's beautiful, and wow, what a deal too
by the way. Such a great story, along with strap, and watch MW !

Thanks so much !!!
