    I didnt at first, but the more and more I see that picture I really like the strap. Mind if I ask where you got it from?

    My local dealer.. In Australia.

    The strap is by Italian company called Bros - have got quite a few & all very good quality.

    Good luck

    Hi, sorry if this isnt the correct thread to be asking this in but im looking to buy my first nice watch. It needs to have a leather strap, preferably black but colour isn't too big of a factor. Id like to have one with a classic face, not to busy and definitely do not want one that tells me water depth or altitude,ect. Just needs to tell the time only. Ideally something like this would be perfect but i only have £150 max ~ $300 to spend. Thanks

    I'm loving all the Bell & Ross timepieces! I've been seriously considering one as my next purchase and I think these pictures just sealed it for me.

    First outing for these shoes on my B&R..

    The thickness (6 mm) of the strap takes some adjusting to.

    lovely. Bear's reposting the picture. There's nothing like a classic design to extol the virtues of a fine timepiece.

    Strap does look very thick.
    Love the color though.
