Sunday plumbing duties.

I really like the size of this one, I need something new and shiny in 39-40mm.

Superb pairing Richard. Just the right amount of "vintage"

Whilst not cheap, a heck of a lot less than the Bremont ones.

Thanks. The Hirsch is probably not as well made as a Bremont strap but as you say, it's about 30% of the cost - and I wanted to try a grey strap without shelling out too much.

I think the strap works well, how thick is it at the lugs?

According to the specs on WatchObsession, it's 6.8mm. To be honest, I'm surprised by that and I guess that measurement is at the centre of the padded bits, rather than right at the lugs, where is probably closer to 4 or 5mm.

I think the anthracite looks better on the Alt1-C good pairing. How thick is the watch? The Hirsch measurements are crazy as they always feel so much thinner, the London would count for a super thin dressy strap despite the measurements.

The watch is 16mm - or thereabouts.
