Haven't posted in this thread for a while, but the arrival of this strap with the intention of putting it on my 316L Orange has prompted me to share it here, as I think it looks rather good. And the strap is very comfortable too, so I'm not sure what all the fuss has been about!

Thanks man, I used to have the C7 Day Date COSC before and not sure why I sold that one. This is still such a cool design, especially the case. The strap was the biggest surprise for me. I thought it would be a bit rough and stiff but is the complete opposite. Feels like a seatbelt nato. And combined with the lightweight watch head, you forget you're wearing it. Good deal at half price, glad I jumped on it. :thumbup:

I have the different colour version of that strap on my C7 COSC LE and love it.
I've ordered the black/white/red strap the other day for use on my C7 Rapide MK3.

Thanks! This was about US$ 400 so well below the $800 (GBP 640) duty-free limit. And 3 days with standard shipping exceeded my expectations like the C65 last month.

Nice Guy.

7.5" / 19 cm. This 42mm is a great size and wears very nice.

My previous C7 COSC, the only difference is the addition of the day. The COSC was -5 spd and my regular C7 is +5 spd.
