    The 16mm strap turned up for this little Korean War era Wittnauer yesterday... Would have been rude not to!

    Nice watch. Do you know the name / caliber for the movement?

    I'm not sure you even care but I use German "Bund" straps for these 32mm cased military type watches. I have pretty big wrists so it creates a nice little optical trick and makes the watch seem bigger. Now, if only I could figure a way to make other 'things' look bigger I'd be set.

    Cheers Rich!

    It's an 11ES, which is based on the ETA1080 series of movements. (Few more pics here: http://omegaforums.net/threads/wittnauer-11es-mil-spec.21757/)

    Love the "Bund" straps, but also love how minimal and small this feels on the wrist - I spend a lot of my day working on a MacBook Pro, so a thin, soft strap that doesn't bang on the aluminium is a plus :D

    That's a nice strap and great idea - where did you get that one from if you don't mind my asking?

    Lovely. Of course you need a loupe to read the dial!

    I like it. It is on a Jurgens pilot strap where it looks good, however the lugs don't facilitate thick straps, a light color Horween might be ideal.
