    I think this is my favorite so far for the 372 although I've got another very special strap from Kostas coming any day now that is sure to give this GSD Swedish Gustav a run for its money. First thing I did before changing shoes was upgrade the strap to a very sweet coin buckle Piotr built for me, LOVE this combo. Lots of pics, sorry if it's overkill... it took restraint not to post even more, lol..

    Thanks guys! :cheers:

    I was thrilled to pick this one up because it looks very similar to a gorgeous 24mm Swedish Gustav I have for my 312 that Paolo built... very unique look & the smell of gunpowder & history is just so wonderfully strong on that one. I had hoped I could score a similar piece for my 372 & this one matches up perfectly.. smell and all. :rocker:

    The little brother on my 312.

    That's a really cool looking combo. Your pics can never be enough. I truly enjoy them.
    And I used to own a ring like yours.
