Winterizing the Flightmaster

Winter is coming! and it's time to get the SNA411 Flightmaster off its yellow rubber band that served me so well during the summer and put it back on a more sober strap.

I really like the yellow Archer strap and I know from past experience that it's a great mood lifter during cold gloomy rainy days, but it's also a shame to waste the Flightmaster potential to morph into a different watch at the drop of a strap. After a bit of reflection I settled my mind on the Ritche dark espresso leather strap because it's starting to age well and get some character, and also because it settled nicely into the contour of the Flightmaster case to the point were it looks as if it has curved ends.

The other options, which I'm sure I'll use later, are the Erika's original drab green with the yellow centerline, which is a nice first choice if you don't mind looking like everybody else, the Strapecode mesh bracelet which is very classy looking, or one of the other lighter leather straps. I also have the NDC but to be honest, I found that I don't like how it wears and it's therefore my last choice despite the hyping from a famous YT reviewer/blogger.

And so the SNA411 is now fitted with the Ritche strap and back on my wrist. Quick release spring bars are truly a blessing.聽

I got cold feet several years after selling when I saw how cool it was on a STAIB/milanese 馃憣 I looks very serious on that leatherstrap.

Are you considering a re-buy?

Closed Collection 馃樁 But, did consider before that decision聽

I know I would never wear it, I didnt wear my nighthawk, but I still want a flighty.聽

Both straps are very cute. I also love your MN straps. Flight master on those looks mindblowing

Oh yeah, my ZuluDiver sailcloth on the left, Barton canvas in the middle, and Barton rubber with black outer and yellow interior. All on 21mm.

How comfortable is the ZuluDiver sail cloth strap?

How comfortable is the ZuluDiver sail cloth strap?

On the scale of 1 to Artem about an 8. A little stuff in the break in but I wanted it to be sturdy too.
