Is that a BC 285 strap on your PO ? I'm looking at getting a new strap and that looks like it would work quite well.
Hi woodruffm,

I'm guessing you mean on the 2500D PO in the foreground? (The older 2500C next to the sub is on a Hirsch 'Paul')

If so, it's a 20mm deBeer 911 Dive Strap. Link: -

- (Ref. DB911BLK-20mm) -

Got it from Holben's Fine Watch Bands a couple or so years ago.

Extremely comfortable & has plenty of room in the spring-bar cavities for a safety leash for swimming/diving in the open sea, & has also been also my 'go to' (with a Japanese military mini-compass on the 6 o'clock part of the strap) when travelling/hiking/holiday-ing in & around Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Kyoto, Kobe etc.

It's a deep, deep velvet black & very comfortable, even after swimming and when hot & sweating.

Have had the similar Bonetto Cinturini & Squale versions before, but their rubber was definitely not as soft nor as comfortable, espescially when wet &/or in summer heat.

Cheers, Will.

Do you have more photos of the hirsch and wrist shots? Are you using this one in water too? Thanks

I tried an orange 8500 on a few weeks ago. I really liked the look and feel, but wasn't sure I would long term. I'm leaning towards a black 2500 now.

They're very nice quality, this is from the range which is 26 euros. I've had loads of different natos and this one has been the best, the watch really deserves an omega nato but no way I'm going to spend that much. The hardware is squared off and polished, which I like and the seatbelt weave is thick and soft.

Oops! - Sorry tbensous!

No, I've seldom worn the Hirsch Paul - feels rather 'plasticy' to me (even though I think top part is supposed to be leather).
Not particularly comfortable for me either.

Apologies again for tardy reply. :roll:
