    Default P-51 on Green Canvas

    This really is an incredible watch!

    I have a tan canvas on order. Not a GGB as I need to be able to see the movement.;)

    And how do you turn the bezel without taking off the watch?

    I certainly can't blame you for wanting a canvas strap that spares that beautiful movement display. As far as the roto-click crown, i think it takes some breaking in. I'm a righty and wear my watch on the left wrist. I just take my the medial side of my right thumb and roll the crown. It takes some effort and just the right amount of pressure, but it works without taking your watch off.
    Enjoy your awesome P-51!

    Carl / GGB now offers an [URL="http://www.gasgasbones.com/galleries/687-2/#.T8tWH5lYuGN"]RAF-style strap[/URL] - basically his canvas strap but two-piece. It'sonly in 20mm at the moment. I wonder if he'd make a 22mm tan version for you?

    Thanks for the replies, I'll try the thumb rotation.
    And I've emailed Carl about a tan, 22mm RAF strap.

    It's a Micah French Canvas from Vintager Straps. I have a tan canvas on order. Great strap that you can take in the water.

    Thanks. Though the P-51 really pops on some good rustic leather, it's too hot in NY.
    So canvas will have to do for now.
