C7 Strap ...

Post by Laird »

looking for a suitable alternative strap for an early 2020 C7 Rapide Rosso Corsa (currently on plain vanilla black silicon) ..... I've seen other C7's with a red-piped black leather strap - also a perforated black strap with red stitching along the edges .....

anybody recommend a source ? (not curved ends preferably !)

Many thanks, Laird

As the Rosso Corsa is a slim watch, I’d look for a thin leather strap - there are lots of choices of black rally straps - red stitching would be a great look. If you can’t find the right one, perhaps try one of the many custom strap makers.

Edit: I just searched on Etsy and a few nice ones came up:

Alternatively the black/red Piccari leather strap that used to come with the C7s is a great match (as you’d expect).

The Hirsch Grand Duke came up in another thread and may fit the bill for you.

EDITED TO ADD:
In exploring the Hirsch website I’ve come across this strap. I think it’s a great match with a Motorsport themed watch. In fact, I’m really tempted to order it for my C65 AM GT! Quick release pins and an available deployant clasp - all boxes ticked for me.
