    OLIVE SUEDE................

    ............arrived today along with another strap (to be shown later!)
    Cheers Melhick !!!!
    Pure class, and again completely changes the look of the Vintage Original.

    Decided to try it out on the BR123, as I wanted a fresh smart look.
    Only thing I am unsure of is the buckle, Think a thin pin buckle would look better.
    Strap is beautifully made, great feel and look also.

    So what do you think?
    22mm x 22mm.















    .....and on the wrist.

    Yes looks a good strap and suits your B & R, although I may have to agree with you on the buckle as it appears a tad over powering (in size) and polished for a Vintage.

    But I would not have noticed until you brought it up so I am sure it is just fine.

    Congratulations.

    Soooo vintage,

    i like it very much.....(except the buckle, not enough vintage)

    you have to wear your battle dress uniform......

    btw i like the 123, very minimalist watch.....
    In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away.

    love the color and texture of that leather. Perfectly match with the creme dial and keeps the vintage look.
    Good creation you have here...

    Sure you'll do something with that buckle
