    Had to Google that strap and colour. Looks a bit dark to me but thats my taste. I like it on some of the sand brown straps above. Would check in this thread for similar colour straps.

    Canít find it on a precista, this the look you are after?

    Custom flag stitching is (was?) an option offered by Erika on her line of Erika's Originals MN (Marine Nationale) straps

    https://erikasoriginals.com

    I suggest just email her with whatever you are interested in.
    (The email contact is at the bottom of her website)

    I cannot find a reference to the stitching on her website right now,
    presumably it is one of the paid options, but I cannot recall how much

    There are some other examples of flags in her Instagram feed

    cheers

    Here's mine earning it's keep in the Dominican Republic. Wore it constantly, including messing about on the beach and getting dragged around by the waves. Wasn't really tested for depth, but it certainly took the knocks and water well. No signs of wear on it at all. Great test for a watch like this and it came out with flying colours.

    Desmo, have you got the Strapcode serial number for that model, and did it already come beadblasted, or did you have it done, it looks amazing.

    as already answered just order the strap you like and instead of ordering through the cart just send an e-mail to order asking for the flag you wish.
    mine was £25 extra .. you could argue it's too much, but it's a really cool addition

    I'm of the opinion that some 'early adopters' that sold their COSC PRS-18's will regret it quite soon, it's an outstanding VFM dive watch.

    I agree fully, with the finish quality and the chronometer rated movement, one of the most incredible bargain purchases i have made in a long long time

    74 arrived on Saturday.

    I was determined to try every other option before I tried this one because, despite it's leather backing and sparkling buckle making it entirely inappropriate, I knew this combination would provide maximum aesthetic pleasure.








    It is so entirely right to my eyes that the leather will just have to get wet.

    PS Very happy with the watch itself:

    • whilst the lume is not as good as the standard 18 it is good enough,
    • the bezel, on this example at least, addresses all my issues with it's predecessor's failure to stay put
    • with a suitable two piece strap the package is not too tall, that was always a nagging doubt when i had earlier examples on a NATO, even the wafer thin Phoenix, and
    • best of all it has bags of character, you'd think that relatively minor changes that actually make the dial less legible would make for a worse watch. Far from it; COSC certification and the knowledge that there's an interesting movement beating away inside put this one on a pinnacle from which it can nonchalantly fail to care about the competition. A definite keeper.

    Very very nice. Still looking to get a leather strap (sacrilege on a diver I know) but the MN band I gave is too comfortable.
