Black cordovan strap???

IWC calls it "synthetic" so whatever that means...

This particular strap came from a black Top Gun Big Pilot from a few years ago. ...  

Ohhh πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

Your thoughts on the strap?

The material is the same as the original but this one has the different taper about 3/4" from the lugs. Here's what the original looked like: And the current one: ...

In retrospect, even quickly in retrospect, what I said, sounded a bit pervy!!! What a Sunday!!!

Love the new one

I’m really enjoying the new Ceratanium as my work watch. Love that the pushers are finally the same material as the case and like the more subdued grayed out hands and numerals. Very understated which works for me. ...
