Thanks guys. It’s a one piece Perlon strap, made by Eulit. I believe Eulit is the original, but having tried many brands and sellers, I can say that Eulit is the highest quality. This one is called the “Kristall” model, but I plan to try the slightly thicker Panama. There is an even thicker still version called Palma, but I didn’t care for it as much.

A decent source is Holbens Fine Watch Bands.

With the ability to insert the pin anywhere along the strap, the Perlon always has a perfect fit.

One of those might be great on my Ex1. :think: I tried a crappy cheap perlon strap on a Sub a while back and hated it. The one you have looks like it’s nicer quality. I assume not all perlon is the same.

Correct. I’ve used many and from all the popular sellers. Most suck. I will only wear Eulit brand. Be careful, I ordered a bunch of them (in different colors) from a seller in Germany called ‘Buran01’. His site said they were all German Eulit Perlon, but they were not. The are shit. Not worth the cost to return.

I don’t have a photo, but Perlon looks great on Explorer. Also on Speedmaster.

The ones I got were from cheapestnatostraps. I figured for like $8 each it was worth a shot. Now that i am thinking of it, I should offer them up FTGH.

I'll check these out at Holben's, I have had good experiences with them as well.

I swore I wasn’t buying any kind of homage or micro again but this ticks so many boxes for me I may have to reconsider.

Completely agree guys, I wasnt sure if I wanted a homage, but its such a nice size. Plus, its a $100k out of production Rolex. Guess I can let it slide.

I was also able to confirm that I NEED a Sub to wear on natos.
