    Small Alpinist Idea

    Keep meaning to post this: SARB017 Alpinist is a cool watch but the OEM strap is awful. Finding something that works with the sunburst green & gold can be tricky too. Green canvas straps look great, but this F71 edition from the NATO strap company is one of the better combos I've tried...only $16 too:

    Mine's a little washed out so here's a stock image:

    Only drag is the 11" length. I can just get the end into the second holder.

    That does look good! Love the green dial with the gold/yellow hands and indices . . .

    That does look really good. It'd be a pricey experiment but I think it'd look great on an olive green Iso.

    I had no idea. My small thread just got a little bigger

    It would be a relatively expensive bet.

    This one isn't bad. The one I saw was ugly lime green. Can't remember if it was Chino watch or somewhere else. It's gone now though.
