New strap

I got this strap with one of the Mook (Magazine book) I buy every month. The strap is a collaboration between Japanese strap maker Bambi and the Mook publisher, Power Watch.

Bambi is well known in Japan, having seen their products all over Sapporo and Tokyo (only 2 Japanese cities that I have been). They are famous for their leather strap made from Matsusaka cow hide. 

The strap is a fabric strap in gray of the popular NATO design.

The collaboration between Bambi and Power Watch.

The back of the box. Easy to open.

The strap. 

Polished hardware. Well made. The buckle is not sewn in. 

The heat sealed holes. 

Even the stitching is good.

Sadly not made in Japan. :)

The watch it is currently fitted on. I think it looks good. The Tudor was originally fitted with the 'Bond' design NATO strap.
