The handmaker Pirate´s Straps made this strap is based in a Vintage straps used at Marina Militare (frogman) number matching/given to one of the operative Black Seals who wore the watch during underwater SLC (Pig SUB) missions. The strap have two issues number “18” and number “23”. There are different theories about the numbering of these straps, but the most acceptable is the numeration of equipment of each diver in the Navy Frogmans. Probably the first number assigned to this strap was the number 18, you can see that it was made by hand, then after reassign the number 23 in a more serious way. What are the reasons for the renumbering of this strap? by the soldier’s death? for a mistake? it is unknown .. will be the mystery of this historic strap.
Go to see this strap in detail…
The detail of the second loop in different texture and color gives it a still more Vintage and “Heavy Duty” character to the strap, a nice touch of Stefano.
The strap is comfortable for a vintage model, detecting the quality of Italian skin. A strap with a strong character and surely does not go unnoticed placed on some watch models.
