First strap from Camille Fournet has arrived. Awaiting strap #2. I realize stock is the motto but as many of you know CF makes Patekís straps anyways so itís really no crime

(Watch strap in medium grey smooth calfskin)

I like that strap. It looks like it gives the dial a more muted winterized look. Does it look that way IRL?

I suppose

I really was looking for something more neutral as I wear a lot of black sneakers and shoes. I feel blue and grey work well.

The next one is a bit more fun. It will either be a home run or a straight dud my wife and I both felt it looked the best of the many options I mocked up on photoshop. To be continued when Camille Fournet gets their together and ships.

The stock strap is fitted with quick release spring bars. I modified this strap with a razor to accommodate them. Took 5 minutes.

Sorry about that. My inbox is full. I have to clean it out. Supposedly, there are only 3 straps that fit the 5522/5524 - the light brown that comes with it, blue and black. I chose the black.

The black strap seems to leave more gaps than the original or it's the angle

You donít recall the color code that can be referenced in the strap catalog, do you?
How was the tone of the blue?
Thanks!
