Any opinions? I mainly want to know how strong the loop the spring bars and buckle are. Are both double thickness and stitched at these points? Had one (not Di-Modell!) that fell apart at the spring bar, causing the watch to hit a hard floor and pieces went flying. Since then I've been particular about straps. I was interested in Brady , but when I asked this exact question the response was 'I'm not sure, and we're almost out of stock on that one anyway." I've heard great things about Brady, so I was kind of taken aback. Maybe I should try again - everyone (even me!) has a bad day now and then.
