Dirk's Pre-Vendome Straps
During several years of collecting pre-Vendôme watches, I was able to lay my hands on numerous original NOS spare straps. These have the old-style fancy 24mm buckle sewn into the strap. Buckles are either bright stainless steel or black PVD-coated.
Most of the straps are 24mm wide for Luminors (fitting both pre-Vendome and contemporary Luminors).
I have additionally some 22/22mm straps with 22mm SS Mare Nostrum buckle (fits MN and 40mm).
Also some 26/24mm straps with 24mm SS buckle for pre-1956 vintage watches (3646, 6152, 6152-1 and 6154 with fixed wire lugs or horn lugs).

Need a minimum order of 2 straps for free shipping to the US and non-EC European countries.
Need a minimum order of 3 straps for free shipping to the rest of the world.
Paneristi should send me an email with their request, specifying leather-code, stitching, size, and delivery address.
I will then mail back the confirmation of their order, requesting to transfer the correct amount to my bank-account in Belgium (they get the account number and my bank's SWIFT code).
Once the money is in, the order will be processed.
