Thanks to Fr. John for providing some helpful information regarding this strap. I've thrown a few pics together, not too good in my office light but i got fed up waiting for the sun to come out!

I'm pleased with the strap, fits tightly to the case and is supple and comfortable to wear, so i give it the thumbs up!

All the best....

Thanks for the pics.
This combo is really nice.
Did you install yourself the strap or has the operation been made by a specialist?

Looks good, Colin! |>

I wear the black Medici on my PW1 to compliment the silver dial/black subdials:


and the golden brown on my 105.012:


The Medici is a great Speedy strap and not bad on the wallet.

Hi Christian, I installed it myself, it is straight forward to do as Hirsch have designed a user friendly mechanism for adjusting the position so that it is snug with the case. It's trial and error, but easily done.

Best wishes

To bump a 5 year old thread.....anyone know how to adjust the end of a Hirsch Medici strap so that it is snug with the case? One of my ends is perfect, the other loose.

TIA

When you say loose do you mean it is not snugged up to the case?

It sounds as if you need to rotate the plastic insert on the loose end to match the position of the insert on the snug end or perhaps move the spring bar to the other hole. I've found that fitting the Hirsch Leonardo straps with the curved ends requires some trial and error to get them fitted correctly.

Thanks Sax! Didn't realize that there were two sets of holes in each plastic tube. I merely had put one of the springbars in the wrong one. All is well now, the strap really snuggles the case quite perfectly.
