    Like the IW ones, the stiched keepers makes it painful to wear if you have a small wrist.

    Hi, The IW Straps aren't bad but rather stiff. Check out on ebay pigskin straps. You will find some vintage straps including pig skin sold by Constable that I think are very nice. They go for abt 35$ (I think) and they sell quickly. Good luck, Bob.

    I'm keen on the tan pigskin - I bought one from Constable a few years back which is amazing, but the Ines he has now are more brown. Vintage look open- end 18/17mm tan pigskin seems hard to find!

    I could be wrong but I think this is the eBay storefront for a-hole of the century you know who.

    I would not patronize at any price.

    Hi

    Had the same happen NATO was not in the title but description ..

    Add something to the description like "& when you want to change/renew your strap there is a huge choice of NATO straps on eBay" & they tell him to p*** off if he tries to end your auction

    Regards
    Mr.H

    This must be an European Union thing? Tons and tons of NATO descriptions on the US edition of Ebay.

    Not to mention the owner (at one time) of International Watchman has been identified in the past as a convicted sex offender...
