Finally placed an order for a couple of straps from Erika’s Originals. I recently purchased a Speedy Pro, and have an Explorer as well, both with 20mm lug widths, so I felt the time to strike was now! Went with one denim, and one original with red stripe. Now the 2 week wait begins.

Been very happy with mine. Looking forward to your impressions.

Not a Rolex, but the new field watch for when I’m going off the grid. I’ve got a couple trips planned.

Got my 2 Erika’s Original straps. Very clever design and superior to a regular nato in just about every way except ease of strap changing, as these require removal and replacement of the spring bars to install.

They combine the security of a deployant strap while being fastened, as opposed to the potential for dropping a watch when putting on a normal strap with pin and buckle. They are infinitely adjustable, and the stretchy material is perfect for the variation in wrist diameter throughout the day. They are as comfortable against the skin and less bulky than even the nicer nato straps. No tail!

Dan, I'd never have found this without the birth of the nylon nation!

One more with the Speedy. I love the aesthetics of this strap, especially the way the white center line stitch lines up with the chrono hand and 12/6 hour indices when looking at it head on. I think I'm going to need more of these straps as time goes on.
