A while ago, James (jad3703) had a group of straps for sale.

One in particular, a red one, caught my interest and I ended up purchasing two of the straps.

By the way, no surprise since James is a great guy, the sale went great and the straps arrived the other day.


I had a vision of a particular watch for that red strap...

and put it on the strap last night.






Now, I think it looks pretty sharp and Sinn does put red highlights in the leather strap for the U1,

I'm just amping that up a bit.


It is raining really hard here, but I ran outside for a quick shot.





I figured I would use a duck for a symbolic touch, as it is pouring outside and I am wondering

if I am going to "duck" wearing a red strap in public.

Re: Real men wear red! (maybe)

I got a red curved end strap for hirsch for my red speedmaster too!:-!
That would be a Hirsch Mobile then

It looks very good and appropriate for a weekend/sport watch. I'd go diving in that.

Some wrist shots added.















The black stitching on the keepers is a plus for the look of the strap.

I don't want everyone to think I only tried the red strap.


I first purchased the U1 without strap or bracelet and had it on a black Zulu for the longest time.






Eventually, I purchased both the Sinn bracelet and strap brand new.

Months went by before I tried the bracelet, which was easy to size and to attach to the watch.
Very happy with that fact as several other watches with solid endlinks have been a nightmare to remove and attach.

I have yet to cut the strap and will most likely wait until the summer to do that.


I recently picked up a Toshi to put on and am very happy with that combo.










Unfortunately, the Toshi is too snug on the first hole and will have to be sold. o|




Most recently is this Orb strap. Although I prefer the lighter color of the Toshi, it is another great strap by Paul and I will keep it in the mix.








I guess the bottom line is that I really like the U1! :)
