I see the straps in the picture below:




But they look different from the ones shown on Stowas website -



Does Stowa not offer them anymore? Thanks,



Matt

They are the same, please keep in mind that this pic is taken through glass and with a flash (I know because it´s my pic I took during the Open Schauer Days in 2004).

Oh well, I stand corrected :) I´ve seen that long one as "decoration".
But if I remember right the strap on the Airman on the left is the current one, right ?

The old style one has more of a vintage look and feel to it. I prefer the thicker one shown above though. I just received the vintage style strap right before Christmas so I have both now and there's just something about that super thick and stiff strap that does it for me. The vintage style one is much more supple and a touch bulkier.

i made a bigger image from your Picture Mike, it's also the Special Airman Strap.
I think the Leather on the Special Strap is in a different Brown coloring
an the leather is a bit smoother.

Matt, the one with the Nato style keeps is available from Stowa. I got that one directly from them recently. It is a little thinner than the strap shown in the first picture at the top of this thread and is made of a different leather. It still looks nice and in fact is very vintage looking but I prefer the thicker strap with the distressed look.

Can you find it on their website for me? I am looking under the 20mm strap section but don't see it. Thanks for the help guys,

EDIT: Do they not offer blued screws anymore either? Thats not listed on their site anymore either that I see.

Well, right: It´s not listed but for the Antea blued screws are offered.

Quote: We also can deliver your watch with handblued screws in the movement. (morecosts 50.- Euro).

Within the Airman pic gallery the movement with the blued screws is still shown



so I think it´s still available. A mail to Jörg will answer your question.
