    The "WTB" threads in the non-watch section of the PX are nice too.

    OK, OK, maybe 25 more? All 18mm olive drab though.

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

The original strap is now on my Smiths...and can be seen here!

    Canít see that pic unfortunately but a 16mm replica would sure be welcome for those of us who have small wrists, US WWII issued watches and what not.

    Revo, That's wonderful news, and 18mm and drab suits me perfectly. I am sure the second edition will be oversubscribed and that you have old friends here that have first dibs (understandably). Beyond that is it a waiting list or first come first served?

    You should be proud Ollie, and in this case it's not a sin. Great work.

    So it looks like I got an extra ornament for my Christmas tree this year - I'll take two please! Like Santa coming down my chimney this is great news

    Can you do a 17mm?? I have a lovely RAAF Hamilton which would look the stuff with one of your straps. I've never been quite happy with straps that are either 18 or 16mm because I've never found a 17mm strap I like..it's a pain.. My only suggestion would be to use higher keepers such as the type used by CWC. I'm finding it difficult to tuck the excess length of the closed strap under the keeper while being worn. The CWC keeper is a little higher and is a better fit for tucking in the excess..anyhow just a suggestion..

    yes, someone certainly has!

    that's definitely a Revo strap and those are fake markings applied with a stencil and black ink..

    Spotted on eBay - it was a Hamilton 6B auction. Can't see the buckle or keepers.

    the watch serial number doesn't appear on John's database.
