New strap for my Hanhart 417

Post by River Rat » Sat Jan 21, 2023 9:42 am

Been thinking of getting a bund type strap like Steve McQueen had on his. Saw this one that looked similar to it. So, ordered one from Joseph Bonnie a company in France their customer service was great. It has the vintage style with stitching that some strap makers skip and not thick leather that was never used in the 1960's so thought this would be more original and a dissent well-made buckle.

Well, made and fits the watch great. Almost look like the original straps in Konrads book.

I’m not usually a Bund fan, but this one looks great. The leather has a perfect vintage look without looking like it’s going to fall apart.

I am old but I remember the last movie Steve McQueen made was in San Diego when I saw it just out of navy boot camp it was Tom Horn who was a lawman, detective, gun for hire in the Wild West he was hung for a murder at the end of the movie not a bad movie. Who else is old enough to have seen a Steve McQueen movie at the movie theater when he was still making movies. He had these Indian good luck charms he held in his hand when he got hung and when he dropped in the gallows those charms dropped on the gallows wooden floor, they used a water activated gallows. Clip of the movie some to this day say the original Tom Horn was innocent.
