I put this in the safe where it usually sleeps and put a white SS Daytona on for the rest of the day....much, much more comfortable. I am 6'1, 225 with 7.25-7.5" wrists, so not a little guy. shog[1].gif
My 43mm DSSD is as tall as the 44mm 312 but it wears a lot smaller. The back of the 312 just doesn't agree with my wrist at all. Sorry, i cant educate on the Pre-V etc as I dont know it well. I just asked Simona to send me 6 different straps and she made some nice ones and sent them over.

In fact i went home at lunch today to get this watch off and back into the safe, it is 17 months old and I think worn maybe 10 days total. Strap is an aftermarket version of the OEM JV strap.
Regards.
do you mind sharing where you got the strap? i'm still on the hunt.

HRoi, Its strap #3.


Per Peter: The straps are made by HERMES trained craftsman and the leather lining is the same type used by CF of Paris.

Beautiful Speedmaster. Zac - what appeals to you about a watch apart from colour? Just about every Rolex model is available with a black dial.
