Thread: New Bremont 'HAMBLEDEN' Straps

  1. #31
    Hi Eric

    A couple of years or so ago I did a batch of straps in green stitch for Bremont. I incorrectly used the wrong colour green for the stitch ! I asked Bremont if I could sell these on (save wasting them ! ) if I removed the label to which they agreed. I think that on you pictured is one of those ! :-)

    I wasn't directing this at anyone in particular, its all good
    I've had my say and hopefully made my point from my perspective.

    Back on to the topic. Anyone who purchases a Bremont leather NATO please post pics and thoughts!

    No doubt, that watch was made to be paired with that strap!

    Great combo.

    I've not been sold on the strap so far as couldn't see where it fits for me - neither very dressy and a little thin for rugged...... and now I know

    When it comes to canvas straps, I don't think you can beat the consistent quality that Carl (GGB) gives his straps! When you mass produce a product there are always things that slip buy that are not perfect! I am lucky in that almost all my canvas straps were GGB when he was there , but I have one post GGB that is definitely not as we'll made! I have had several custom leather straps made for my Bremonts but I always seem to gravitate back to their leather! They have done a great job of making leather straps that just finish the watch off perfectly! I don't mind paying more when I end up with a great combo! So with that said I am waiting for my brown hambledon to arrive in the mail! Pics will be posted shortly after she arrives! Cheers Jim

    Just got my brown HAMBLEDEN strap! So I put her on my MB1 to give her a test drive! The strap is very supple and soft which just molds to your wrist. I have always liked brown straps with black faced watches! So here she is! Cheers Jim . .

    Thanks so much for the pics - the strap looks great. It sets the MB off beautifully.
