As some of you know, I own a PAM 312 and absolutely LOVE that watch! I've already bought three straps for it besides the two straps that the watch came with. Having worn the watch for 1½ months now, it turns out that I have an allergy to Chrome! :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: This is what my wrist looks like at the moment... My doctor gave me a special ointment to treat the rash with... He stated that the Chrome causes an extreme drying out of the skin. So now I can never again wear ANY leather straps treated with Chrome (which is used by many strap makers to make straps more subtle and water resistant).. Strange thing is that (besides a TS Kevlar strap) I only have OEM Panerai straps about which is said in the 2008 PAM catalogue: "Panerai straps are non-allergenic. A specially developed internal lining eliminates the risk of skin allergies and contributes to the long life of the strap while ensuring maximum wearing comfort and suppleness when worn." Apparantly, at least in my case, this "non-allergenic" should be taken with a grain of salt.. :banghead: I am not sure what to do right now, but so far I don't want to sell the 312 since I love the WATCH. So I will have to live with having any other strap on it than leather... sorry, I don't dare to try out any "non-allergenic" leather strap again. :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown: Luckily, I have the OEM rubber strap and my Ted Su Kevlar strap (which is very comfy, btw.)! :thumbsup: Do you guys and gals have any suggestions to other straps (non-leather)? :thinking: Sorry, a NATO strap would be a :nono: on a PAM imho..
