I suggested this Hirsch Rally strap to my kids as a potential Christmas gift. It would look great with my C65 AMGT LE!

I’m glad to see I’m not the only one to have picked up a strap in their sale and in response to this thread! My new strap will be here in 10-20 days. :shock:

That strap looks lovely! It’s a very nice compliment to the watch.
