About the strap
Mario Arillo was an Italian Navy commander in charge of the submarine Ambra in 1942, and he carried out multiple successful assaults during WWII. The Ambra was modified to carry three
SLCs, the famous underwater manned-torpedoes. Frogman commandos would use their Panerai watches to time their escape from the blast radius.
After the war, Giuseppe Panerai himself presented a 6152/1 with a dark brown leather strap and GPF buckle to Mario Arillo. The Arillo strap is a modern handmade replica of the strap on the original Mario Arillo 6152/1.
