    New SA80 Sling Strap

    Just home to see this had arrived.
    I have only one watch with 22mm lugs so I squeezed this 24mm into my Pinion Pure Pro.
    Iíll take better pics with the SLR shortly, but hereís are few Q&D iPhone snaps...







    Overall - I love there look - but itís a bit long for my 7.25Ē wrists - so I may have to start playing around with it to get a better fit.

    Glad you like it Zelig,

    I made them a little longer than convential in order for them to fit over diving rig.

    Should you prefer it shorter then please get it back to me with a required length and I will adjust to your size.

    Once again, chuffed you like it and your Pinion looks incredible with it.

    Best

    They are rather cool, expect an order coming your way! Just need to work out what watches I own have a 24mm lug.
    ...2 ordered!

    “I’ll take better pics with the SLR shortly, but here’s are few Q&D iPhone snaps”

    I totally misread the SLR bit,I’ve still got my sling and cleaning kit somewhere.

    Heres a link for the buckle operation. Please ignore the quality of the strap, this video was filmed using a prototype. https://youtu.be/8Zzvzs0JslE

    Got mine today.
    I am really happy, a very well made strap that is just the right length. I just wish I had more 24mm lug watches
    Pics to follow.

    Sorry guys, the width is the width. As I make them from surplus Slings the width is set. I can make a strap to the same design for smaller lugs but this would be from non rifle sling nylon. Best Matelot

    Are the buckles standard for the rifle strap? Presumably you only have polished ones?
    Pretty tempted to get one of these for my Luminox beater but it's matt black so not sure if a polished buckle will look right.

    Hi Domwells, as standard the polished are supplied. However, I will be able to supply a set of buckles for you in a matte black if required?

    You won't regret it, I love mine on my Citizen, the buckle, whilst not as easy to thread as a traditional buckle is lovely to use to get a great fit, because its a friction fit, you can adjust it perfectly.
    Thanks Darren.
    I should also mention that his after sales care is great too, I made a mistake with measuring what I needed and the first strap was too short, Darren immediately sent me another which was just right ( I hope the first has been delivered back to you ok? )
    Cheers..

    Sorry, just seen your question, yes, Citizen NH6930-09FB Duratect Titanium Automatic 1000m. It normally uses a rubber strap connector system unique to the model that fits into the case back, but a company called Suppa make these adapters that fit in the same place that gives it a 24mm threaded bar lug for more strap options.
    Cheers..

    Mine arrived yesterday, really nice quality and Darren is a top chap to deal with.
    I think it works rather well on the Luminox, will get some pictures over the next couple of days and post them on the thread.

    Quick picture fitted - hopefully correctly! :)
    Very comfortable and I like the infinite adjustability.
    Black hardware matches the head nicely too!

    Just ordered a strap for a friend, who I am sure will love this.

    Cracking idea to use old cleaning kits as rolls, do they smell of gun oil?
