Heuer Monnin - new strap?

Post by goaliechris » Sun Jan 13, 2019 8:56 am

Hi all - after briefly considering putting this up for sale, I have instead decided to put a new strap on it. For this watch, what would you choose: a leather or a NATO strap? Leaning towards something leather but an olive NATO would be killer.

Thanks - just looking for some quick ideas.

OD canvas...looks awesome!

For the brief time I owned one (and I want another one), an OD green or tan nato looks awesome:

Leather (with minimal stitching) or canvas would also work:

“OD”?

Canvas is a great idea.

NvM - got it. Olive drab.

Any specific makers?

Olive NATO is perfect.

Thanks all - maybe try both. Contacted Drew via IG for a canvas strap. I have a Toxic strap but in orange - high quality item so will go that way again if nato. That jungle green Shiznit looks pretty sweet.

ImageWhat about something like this to pick up the red on the dial? Doesn’t have to be a MN strap, I know I’ve seen some Natos that were similar.

Brown leather, canvas or Ericka’s MN would all look good.

Ha! If I do, I will definitely post it here first (and include the MN strap). However, I really like it.

Awesome. Can’t wait to see what it looks like. I’ve been wanting to order one to try on my Pelagos - just can’t decide on the color.
