    Yes, so far I only have three straps, and they're all OEM:

    Black croc
    Brown croc
    Rubber

    Now time for you to hunt some straps, Bo.

    Ted Su is a good start. Try Gunny or Rob Montana, I promise you will like 'em.

    Nice shots Bo. :thumbsup:
    The honey brown croc is my favorite strap for the 312. I even prefer the look over the JV strap, though the JV is a close second! :worship:

    ONLY minus with the OEM Panerai straps for me is that they are a bit on the short side for my wrist.. I had to remove the second keeper since the strap end didn't reach it. The strap end is only JUST covered by the sewn-in keeper.. :banghead:

    The tang is in the third hole which gives me the comfortable fit that I prefer (being able to slide my little finger under the buckle/clasp), BUT the strap is a bit on the short side. I did order extra long straps initially, but when I tried those out at the AD, they turned out to be too long (comfy fit in the second LAST hole)..

    Just took these quick'n'dirties to show you how it looks like now..

    I think that longer (non OEM) straps will become a wellcomed change...

    No WONDER that I find the strap a bit on the short side..

    Just measured it: it's 115/75mm! :eek:

    Non OEM straps are typically 135/85, right? :thinking:

    What a shame that OEM Panerai straps are that short. :banghead:

    Just next to impossible to beat a croc strap on a watch. Nice looking strap on the watch. Elegant look added to the manly looking head of the watch. IMHO

    The brown croc strap is superb !
    I think Panerai has one of the best straps in the watch industrie :thumbsup:

    I have tried some starps on my Sub but it looks not as good as on Pams
