New strap for C9FLE and C600IPB (Updated)

Post by Aifo »

Stumbled upon a strap supplier on the net called "Strap Code", and after a little bit of search turns out they are based locally (Hong Kong) so I visited their re-seller to add some flavors to my beloved Red 12.

She was originally "dressed up" with a very formal band (oiled calf) and very dressy:

And I picked this new dress for her:

Very sporty I know. But as we all know the Red 12 is pretty versatile, so this is how she's transformed:

I like the difference myself, it wears quite soft and the polished buckle matches the case. As to whether I would be looking for another "dress" for the Red 12, probably yes :lol:

I also purchased this from the re-seller a PVD mesh for my IPB:

Its fitted now, and here's the transformation (apology for the over-exposed crappy phone pics) 8)

Will wait and see how the PVD coated spring bars hold up to the scratches... fingers xx

The C9 FLE looks good on both those straps, you are right a very versatile watch. :thumbup:
No more Quartz (except when I cannot resist).
