    Best fabric straps for a Steinhart OVM 39mm?

    Looking to buy a few NATO or similar style straps for an incoming. Eddie’s are on the cards plus some Erika’s. Any recommendations? Better still, pics! I am not the best at picturing how watches look on particular straps from a colour scheme POV.

    Google images is your friend, I look for things like SRP777 on blue striped nato all the time, it really helps to see real examples.

    Take a look at the Rios Warsaw canvas (leather lined) NATO with brushed metalwork ?
    I think they’re fantastic and just the look on a steinhart vintage....
    Probably got on I can lend you if you want to try it....

    Cant beat a plain grey or a plain beige. Luckily Martac happen to make some of the best nato's going, in both these colors. The straps themselves are comfortable and bulletproof, they just stay looking new for a very very long time.
    The one below has 5 years of fairly regular wear on it.

    Thanks. My first experience, and they impress as a product, both in design and application.

    Haveston Parade Series in black or green would look amazing. There’s a couple on SC at the moment ;)
