Thread: Giveaway #2 - The Straps

  1. #1

    Giveaway #2 - The Straps

    For the second part of my giveaway, I have a few new straps in need of a good home. The rules are simple. Pick one of the straps, and post a picture of the watch you would like to put it on. I'll pick the ones I like the best. The buckles shown will be included.

    As with the other giveaway, if there is enough interest, I'll add more straps.

    Please feel free to enter for multiple straps, but only one entry per strap. This giveaway will run until midnight your local time on May 17th just like my other giveaway.

    The straps up for grabs:

    Cork. Yes, cork. It is actually a great strap material and wears very similar to leather, but is naturally water resistant. I bought them directly from the Museo do Relogia in Portugal. This one is 24mm.





    Maratac Composite. This one is notched for 22mm.



    Cordura. This one is branded Halios and came with the Tropik B. It's a neat looking strap, much cleaner in design than canvas, but I never found the right watch to match it with. It's 22mm wide. This one doesn't have a buckle.



    BJ Strap. This one is 20mm. Simple dark stitching on a very soft leather. A lovely strap, but I sold the watch I bought the strap for and never had a chance to use it.

    I mentally tried to will that 20mm strap onto my Zungu (my only 20mm watch) but it wasn't happening

    Two good entrants already

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    EDIT: I should have opened with something like: Ooh, more free stuff

    I'd like to swap out the 'sailcloth' on this (which I'm not a huge fan of !):

    I realize the look is pretty much like for like; but the maratac should win hands down on the comfort front

    If I still had a nato left, there would be no doubt I'd try to give it away! They've never worked out well for me.
