WOW- nice catch!

That could be the original strap, even. DiModell has long been an OEM strap supplier to industry principal brands. Any signature on the buckle? I believe manufacturers were signing buckles and clasps by the 50's, so, if the buckle is signed L-C and the strap marked D-M, I think that would make the strap original or a genuine replacement. The backing material looks a little like the modern stuff which breathes like crazy but I really can't tell from the pic- it'd be interesting if they developed that design that long ago.

Those who dare go vintage can reap a huge benefit ... very, very nice.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
