The OEM Tan strap explained pics and descriptions of the different OEM tan straps

Felt the urge to show you some differences between OEM tan straps.
To me the tan strap is as iconic for Panerai as the PAM00001 is.
It seems that for a lot of us the tan strap is just the strap that came with the watch.

Needless to say that I like 'm a lot and think they are very underrated.

Heres a pic of some of my OEM tan straps.
Nicely stored in a strapcase Wojtecki made me on my request with a black interior. Now it matches the OEM box colors.
(Thought I once saw Hammer had the same combination. Eye for detail there Hammer!)


The different OEM tan straps:
Pre-A: sewn in pre-A buckle, orange tan, backliner with a sort of leopard print, flat keeper
A-C: orange tan, brownish backliner, flat keeper
C-transitional: orange tan, light grey/beige backliner, flat keeper
D onwards: brownish tan, light grey/beige backliner, pressed lines in keeper.
Logo on backliner: later on, dont know when, the logo was pressed in the tip of the backliner of the long part of the strap. Do not know in what year!

Front of the straps:


Back of the straps:


Detail of the pre-A back


Detail of the A-C back


Detail of the C-transitional back


Detail of the D onwards back


Detail of the pre-A strap


These straps can age nicely, in my opinion. On the next pic you can see different stages of aging. With my most worn on my PAM1A
Left to right: New, slightly worn, bit more worn, and very very worn with now a very rich darker color. The very worn one looks so much better in reality than on these pics.


And a detail of the straps.


But there are more OEM tan straps.

Next to the Pre-A and the A-C strap is the original PAM195 strap, with a brown backliner. Next to that the MX tan strap, also with a brown backliner.
Hope it shows that all colors tan/brown are all slightly different.


And when I was finished doing this I could have showed some more friends of the OEM tan like:
PAV90, PAV99, the cashmere 1950 and the cashmere blackseal. All wonderfull OEM straps.
Yes its true, the OEM straps are my most favourite straps.

Indeed, completely slipped my mind.
A-series could come with a leopard back and without the sewn in pre-A buckle, to be fitted with the thumbnail buckle.
I actually had one once!

It seems that for a lot of us the tan strap is just the strap that came with the watch.

Needless to say that I like 'm a lot and think they are very underrated.

Heres a pic of some of my OEM tan straps.
Nicely stored in a strapcase Wojtecki made me on my request with a black interior. Now it matches the OEM box colors.
(Thought I once saw Hammer had the same combination. Eye for detail there Hammer!)


The different OEM tan straps:
Pre-A: sewn in pre-A buckle, orange tan, backliner with a sort of leopard print, flat keeper
A-C: orange tan, brownish backliner, flat keeper
C-transitional: orange tan, light grey/beige backliner, flat keeper
D onwards: brownish tan, light grey/beige backliner, pressed lines in keeper.
Logo on backliner: later on, dont know when, the logo was pressed in the tip of the backliner of the long part of the strap. Do not know in what year!

Front of the straps:


Back of the straps:

The OEM Tan strap explained pics and descriptions of the different OEM tan straps

Felt the urge to show you some differences between OEM tan straps.
To me the tan strap is as iconic for Panerai as the PAM00001 is.
It seems that for a lot of us the tan strap is just the strap that came with the watch.

Needless to say that I like 'm a lot and think they are very underrated.

Heres a pic of some of my OEM tan straps.
Nicely stored in a strapcase Wojtecki made me on my request with a black interior. Now it matches the OEM box colors.
(Thought I once saw Hammer had the same combination. Eye for detail there Hammer!)


The different OEM tan straps:
Pre-A: sewn in pre-A buckle, orange tan, backliner with a sort of leopard print, flat keeper
A-C: orange tan, brownish backliner, flat keeper
C-transitional: orange tan, light grey/beige backliner, flat keeper
D onwards: brownish tan, light grey/beige backliner, pressed lines in keeper.
Logo on backliner: later on, dont know when, the logo was pressed in the tip of the backliner of the long part of the strap. Do not know in what year!

Front of the straps:


Back of the straps:


Detail of the pre-A back


Detail of the A-C back


Detail of the C-transitional back


Detail of the D onwards back


Detail of the pre-A strap


These straps can age nicely, in my opinion. On the next pic you can see different stages of aging. With my most worn on my PAM1A
Left to right: New, slightly worn, bit more worn, and very very worn with now a very rich darker color. The very worn one looks so much better in reality than on these pics.


And a detail of the straps.


But there are more OEM tan straps.

Next to the Pre-A and the A-C strap is the original PAM195 strap, with a brown backliner. Next to that the MX tan strap, also with a brown backliner.
Hope it shows that all colors tan/brown are all slightly different.


And when I was finished doing this I could have showed some more friends of the OEM tan like:
PAV90, PAV99, the cashmere 1950 and the cashmere blackseal. All wonderfull OEM straps.
Yes its true, the OEM straps are my most favourite straps.
