After trying numerous straps and bracelets on 6309 -- this is the one forever more. It is a Hirsh waterproof twin-pad consistent with the substantial character of the watch and melds to the wrist like a glove. The double deployant especially convenient and saves wear and tear on the leather.
Thanks for the replies everyone. Loving the look of the bracelet pictures Isthmus posted. Will be placing my order with swedefreak soon for his end caps and will continue searching for the right strap.
Also thanks for suggesting on getting either a 24 or 26 mm leather and getting it notched.
