Description of Strap:

This strap could easily be under the "Vintage" section as it's made from 1950's vintage canvas French ammo pouches. This is an extremely versatile strap that provides a great alternative to the standard leather ammo-style strap. The ammo pouch canvas makes it historic and beautiful while a leather backing gives it comfort and style. Box stitching with a double stitch at the corner enhances the strap's vintage character.

The strap arrived in a padded envelope. Inside the package were the strap and a letter from Micah describing his return policy as well as approach.

My Thoughts and Impressions:

There is no doubt in my mind that I will be ordering more straps from Vintager/Micah. The quality of his product is outstanding and his customer service is beyond reproach. Top notch product and definitely worth the price!

That's a great looking strap.

I like the buckle you chose Mark.

Better for small wrists.

That is exactly why I got it. The PreV tend to look too big on me and I prefer the clasp closer to the wrist.



Micah offers a pretty good variety of buckles for his watches -- springbar, screwed and fixed!

Hey Mark, by the way, what size is your wrist? Just for reference with someone wanting one of these, give them better idea on what size to order, based on the size strap you have here.

The MAUSER straps they offer
http://www.vintagerstraps.com/zonem/index.php

seem to be the coolest thing one could ever think of to
turn into a watchstrap. The return-policy is... incredible.

I/we, Orca, will get in touch for our "glass caseback auto" -
model. This strap is "the one" for the planned OFFICER watch.

Regards
Carsten

Thanks for the great pics, that was a fine buckle choice (for my wrist) and arguably the best canvas i've checked out. super cool!

i'd love to see it on a chunky black PVD case.
