    Hi all,

    Just want to share with you some picts of my new strap: an original Drifter from Kaktus.

    That's really a nice handmade strap, very confortable and it fits perfect with the 312

    I love that strap, Aston! I love tan straps with white stitching. You just can't go wrong with that combo on any Panerai! :worship: :worship:

    Beautiful strap !! Use it well.

    Is that the Original Drifter or the Hemingway ?

    Don't know much about straps since I just got my 312 but what is the standard length and width of a PAM strap ?

    Do you stick with this on a new strap or does another width look and feel better ?

    Thanks for the info.

    Thanks guys ! :worship:

    It's the Original one (lighter than the Hemingway).

    Yes I currently really stick with this one, which is really confortable. I also use often a Rob Montana (WWII ammo strap) which is also perfect.

    But this Kaktus strap is currently my favorite :thumbsup:

    Concerning the length, there's no standard. It depends of your wrist size. If you have a PAM312, take care to take a 24mm/24mm or 24mm/22mm (first size=between the lugs and 2nd=for the buckle) :wink:
