Question on OEM rubber straps

Hi all,

I'd like to ask something regarding rubber straps. Mine has "Panerai Italy" written under the short end and is blank under the long end. Most OEM rubber straps that I've seen have "Made in Austria" written under the long end and are blank under the short end. Is there any chance mine is not OEM?

Any help provided would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

On the first series (B-C-D?) of rubber strap, there are also 2 markings (rubber strap with free leather loop/keeper).
"PANERAI ITALY" + "C" on the short end and blank on the long end.
"C" on the short end and "Made in Austria" on the long end.
I think they are all 2 OEM.
Best regards.
