Got one of these straps in for a client..

Actually works well, I put a 16S A Lincoln with a french bow in there to see how it fit and it's pretty good.

Watch just slides in from the side then stem/bow goes into cut...pretty heavy hand stitched leather
you can actually wind the watch on your wrist and it'll never get boring...any standard 16S pocket will fit nicely. What do you guys think?

Tom, I like the idea. Are they also available for 12 size watches?

Bruce; No this size only right now.
You COULD put a 12S in there the bow would hold it in position or put a liner in there.

Didn't they use something like that around the First World War?

I have one of these,although do not have a movement in it right now.If I remember
right I had a 8 size in it.I know a 10 or 12 won't fit in mine.They are a good
rugged band and offer protection for the watch.

That is an idea Peter. Was that holder from Prague for $74 or is there another supplier?
See 'pitfall' post.
