I will have to say the new Omega deployant ain't half too shabby though biggrin.gif

I'll have to keep that strap guy in mind, thanks!

So I will probably go that route.  Just means I have to wait a bit, unless there is something in the strap drawer that would work.

Which reminds me, I have a couple OE Patek straps that I took in a trade that I need to get around to posting for sale.

Bonus feature: the less you have to deal with Omega, the better. Plenty of companies make quality straps.

 

Not a big fan of Omega straps? Or Omega customer service in general?

Okay stitchy - I'm think I posted this already but it was likely a zillion pages ago in this fast-moving thread.

This is a lovely example. I really love gently sloping lugs.

Good point. $400 for a freaking Omega strap!?

Let's just say that the straps themselves aren't the problem... not a fan of the modern version of the company in general.

I'm about to pull the trigger on a Stowa Antea KS41 but really stuck on the strap. I found the lower end straps from Stowa rather poor quality. I wonder also if the bracelet would be the better choice.

Any other Stowa owners out there who have experience with the bracelet, croc or napa straps? Are they worth the money. Any other Antea or Tangomat owners who can advise the best strap colour? Thinking maybe navy or DB for versatility.
