I have a 47mm Luminor (673) at present, but am considering a 47mm Radiomir 249, if I can find one.

I have a couple 26mm straps for the 673. Will these work well on the 27mm Radiomir or is it worth investing in some 27mm straps?

Thanks!
John

I think 26/26 looks better, it's more historic looking and for some reason the 27mm width looks like it's trying too hard, if that makes sense.

I always go with 26mm on my 47mm rads. Not to mention the benefit that you can use one strap on many watches that way.

... and thanks to all for the input. It looks like 26mm works just fine on a wire lug Radiomir.

Thank you

After more than half a dozen PAM’s and a dozen straps I have found my one all PAM and strap combo.
