I like this watch lots, the LACO WUS LE watch. I was on the original group when it was first mooted but dropped out due to various reasons. Anyway, I was presented with an opportunity to purchase one, it was all go. Sadly it was not complete. The original black strap was missing. So as a replacement, I fitted it with the Bonetti strap I had.
Sadly after some time, the strap gave way around the point where the strap sits in the buckle.
The watch fitted with the Bonetti strap. I do like the strap, soft and very comfortable.
The split. I guess this is one of the problem with an unstitched edge strap.
The other side.
I asked my friendly watch guy if he could source a strap for me. I could go for any straps but I wanted an aviation or pilot type strap. After a couple of days, he calls me and shows me this strap. I like.
ZRC strap. Cool. Did not expect it.
Get out the correct tool.
Strap replaced. Looks good. I like it. Very comfortable.
