New strap for the Spirit

Post by MKTheVintageBloke » November 9th 2021, 3:20pm

I've decided to change the Spirit's original bracelet to a leather strap. To be honest, I liked the strap version more, but I wanted to have the original bracelet just in case.
Two weeks ago, I've ordered a strap from Remie (7T2 Straps), a Dutch custom strap maker, made to measure for the watch and my wrist.
Went for a colour similar to Longines's stock strap for the black dial version of the Spirit, but with a two-stitch structure and a single keeper.

Received it today...and it's absolutely fantastic. Thick, but can be easily bent into shape, and fits me like a glove with the Spirit. Not like 70 euro is little for a strap, but for a strap made to measure, it is more than fair.

I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.

Love it. Looks better on the strap for sure. But yeah it makes sense to buy it on the bracelet. If I didn't have the Milus I'd have one of these, they are just beautiful.
