Interesting the way that the strap has the same end links as the bracelet (unless they are the actual end links)
They are the same actual end links. :D
Now that is indeed intriguing! Are the links permanently attached with the springbar in the non lug end then????

Not sure I understand the exam question (story of my life), but essentially, the rubber strap and the steel bracelet are both shaped in the same way where they attach to the end-link. So, the spring-bar passes through the end-link, through the strap/bracelet and through the other side of the end-link - causing a connection between the strap and the end-link.. clear?

Maybe this picture helps - shows the shape of the lug-end of the rubber strap...

Answered perfectly! Straight to the top of the class. It really is a very neat solution.

I am sure that I read about Rolex rolling this sort of strap/bracelet combo out recently (for an insane proce). Looks.like Tudor were the first in the family to do it! Ingenious!

Good looking watch there Jim; but it seems larger than your usual.

It's the angle of the pic I think. It's only 40mm, but does have a long lug-to-lug.

Deceptive and, at 40mm, a good size for you I believe.

new bezel arrived yesterday for my 2nd Amphibia. Think it goes perfectly with the colours of the dial.
needs a different strap though.

Let's have a slow day today:

I know it's quite big, but I love the dial and the blued hand that sometimes looks black:
