Features a vintage medium blue base with subdued grey stitching.
In addition to the "Non-Specular Intermediate Blue" (ANA 608) featured on naval aircraft of the period, the USN Deck Uniform in the late 1940s comprised a Chambray Shirt, Dungarees and Jumper suit dyed in variations of Navy.
The Quarterdeck Canvas strap has a relaxed appearance which ages and patinas beautifully with use. Pairs excellently with a range of pieces, and especially with monotone or blue dials, bead blasted grey cases and dial designs with blue accents.
A one-piece strap layout outfitted with our signature secondary floating keeper, which allows the spare tail to be stowed without the need for folding back (unless desired), and repositioned 7 o’clock buckle to deliver greater comfort and enhanced aesthetics.
Mirroring a 1945 dated NOS specimen strap, the single-pass layout offers a streamlined wearing profile and reduced "off-wrist" height while retaining the security of a one-piece layout to protect against spring-bar failure.
CONSTRUCTION / INSTALLATION
With a double layer of cotton canvas construction and stitch reinforced holes, our Canvas line has a higher side profile than our other straps.
For watches with a limited springbar to case clearance, install bars over the strap, or consider curved bars. Do not force strap through, as this may deteriorate strap, bars and case.
