Received a very nice gift from my better half of a Panerai PAM00111 with sandwich face with brown suede strap and black rubber strap. Will probably pick up an olive canvas strap in short order, but after one evening of wearing it, I was in love.
Very nice, TPE.
I love their natural suede straps and the patina it takes on over time.
Funny you mention canvas. One of the hot topics currently on a watch forum I'm on daily is about Panerai watches on NATO/ Zulu and canvas straps. I think they look great.
Many thanks W+A. Good to know about the canvas straps. I think I am just a canvas strap kinda guy, when not wearing the suede strap. Don't think I will get much wear out of my rubber strap however.
I have never put rubber on either of my Panerai watches. Just too hot for me and I don't wear either of mine in water.
Agreed. I gave my rubber strap to my BiL who does wear it. OTOH I do love the rubber strap on my chopard before I changed it to a leather one I had made (and will be changing back soon) and if I ever do get the Nautilus I"m lusting over I"m very happy with that rubber strap.
Oh and nice birthday present TPE. I'd say she's a keeper.
