    A few questions about my amphibian

    This is my first fibbi and I have no idea of the age of it. Would I be right thinking its an early model because its manual?





    And what type of strap would look best on it?
    Heres what ive tried




    Thanks

    would be original on the bracelet here is one that's similar



    but the bracelets are of shockingly bad quality that most people have then straight off hence that I might have one or two in my spare strap box lol
