Strap musings

I popped on my 1969 Seamster 60 this morning, and almost immediately one of the (original, 40+ year-old) spring bars broke. It had been on a tropic rubber strap, but because I was less than ecstatic with that combination and I want to keep the (again original) bracelet in unworn condition I had to find another 19mm strap in my box of bits. Luckily I had a Camille Fournet black alligator that will do for now, but in an attempt to bring out the deep blue of both the dial and the Bakelite bezel I’ve also ordered a navy sharkskin from the Di Modell range.

I’m not 100% sure that I’ve cracked it yet, to be honest, and – whilst this isn’t really a blog that attracts a multitude of comments – should you stop by and have any ideas for an alternative please leave a comment and let me know.

This is the cultprit…
