Thanks guys! The strap is made of a kind of nylon. Got it from an NOS storage in Netherland. Cool military vintage touchchickendance.gif

Been wearing the watch those last 16 days for the job, screwing and hammering flanges around Hammerfest LNG plant(Snøhvit): Comming on the 17th day , it went +57 seconds or around 3.3sec/day.
Great performance for a standard grade 2824-2 Eta who been exposed to vibrations and cold temperatures I would say.
I got it rapidly regulated few months ago by my friend who's an experienced watchmaker. Nothing else fancy.
