Please see our ChronoTrader Policies and Terms of Use. Learn more about How To Include Photos In Your Postings.

Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price.

FS: Rare Hirsch open-ended black leather racing straps


Here is a rare type of strap: Open-ended leather racing straps made by Hirsch, the quality strap maker. If you like the look of Heuer type leather straps with holes for your favorite fixed-lug watch, this might be the only time you see ones like this listed. These straps have the ends that glue together when you activate the fixative with something like nail polish remover.

STYLE 1 18MM PERFORATED (5 available)

Perforated type in 18mm size black leather smooth finish. Can come with your choice of steel, gold colored or black buckle, all original buckles on the straps.

These are unpadded straps stamped with the Hirsch H on the back.

Straps are New Old Stock, unused. Measure 7 3/4 inches placed end to end, with the open end flaps folded closed, including the buckle.

Price is $30 each plus $1.95 for U.S. shipping with tracking. Five available.

STYLE 2 20MM BIG HOLES (one available)

Big holes type in 20mm size black leather with a nice calf grain finish. Can come with your choice of steel or gold colored buckle.

This is an unpadded strap stamped with the Hirsch H on the back. Only one available.

Strap is New Old Stock, unused. Measure 8 inches placed end to end, with the open end flaps folded closed, including the buckle.

Price is $40 plus $1.95 for U.S. shipping with tracking.

Paypal or mail payments accepted. Other straps purchased from me at the same time can ship for free. Email me for the link to my complete selection, including many other racing straps in leather or rubber.

I have many references here. Thanks - Bill Mahoney
