Think I might change the strap sometime soon......... not sure about the light coloured stiching and the silver rivets. Any sugestions what strap to get?

It won't be cheap but I would recommend a black Toshi.

Black fabric with blue stitching to match the dial markers - seen a maratac on here somewhere that looks the part if you can get one that fits.

Downer has (or had) his BlackHawk on a Maratac with blue stitching.

It looked good so I bought one for mine but it went on the blue C600 and has been there ever since.

I agree downer's looked good on the Maratac but I also feel that an aviator needs leather (or maybe, for the right one, steel). The Maratacs are best on divers.

A custom Toshi with black leather and blue stitching is the way to go. Or maybe a steve-o-straps similarly themed number (at about half the Toshi price!).

Hi Mortis. Where might one acquire a Steveo strap please?

Erm, now, well, uh, I am not affiliated with Steve (although I have the same name - purely coincidence I assure you!).

I also don't even own a steve-o-strap...

But they are recommended by serial strap buyer Ian Blyth and I have handled one at a GTG and it was very nice. Anyway, some comparisons and positive comments here:

And the straps are available from this site:
http://www.steveostraps.com/

Do let us know if you get one (and put some pics up!). :)
