Long strap, short story…

During the holidays I found time to change the strap of my 6152/1. I decided to give the initial strap a little break after some months since it was put on the watch for the shooting of our book “History1”. The dark brown calf strap comes in the size of 90 x 150 mm with double keeper (one floating, one fixed) and GPF-buckle.

After I pushed out the pins on the lugs I gave the case a little cleaning with a soft cloth. The strap got a careful treatment with some grease before it was stored away to keep it in good condition for a future use. Always nice to see the details of the “Luminor Panerai” dial thru the thick plexiglass…

I fitted a vintage strap in the size 100 x 160 mm which has been initially used on a Panerai instrument. The very thick and soft strap has an olive-brown color and beige stitching, also one fixed and one gliding keeper. The brushed stainless steel buckle holds a three digit matriculation number.

This is how the watch will be carried into the new year – wishing everyone a good start in 2013! [Volker Wiegmann]
