Incidentally, would like to trade dieworkwear out of the Asian community because 'Derek Guy' isn't a very AZN name. Representatives of other ethnicities, please PM me with offers.
No takers yet?
Gotcha. So, is that AD effectively selling the strap version higher than list price because of demand?
Really, where? Afaik, the MSRP for the bracelet version is a couple hundred more than the strap version in the US and Canada. Applies to both the Burgundy and Midnight Blue BB.
I like the red on that one. The red triangle on the bezel insert is reminiscent of the 6538. And several vintage Subs and Sea Dwellers featured red text on the dial.As for the gap between the bracelet and case, I suppose the winning bidder can always buy a regular BB ss bracelet with solid curved end links to put on that watch.
I guess some scratches might be inevitable, but the first few always bring a tear to my eyes.For strap changes, I've found that you can prevent most scratches inside of lugs by taping the inside of lug tips. Push the strap back as far as you can from the lug with your fingers and slip the large fork end of the tool in to further push the strap back while engaging the springbar flange at the same time.Fwiw, I use a generic tool similar to the Bergeon 6111 for strap...
I don't mind the colored crown tube and it really isn't that noticeable irl, at least on the Midnignt Blue one, especially when worn. My only knock on the Black Bay, if I were to nitpick, is that I wish the case wasn't as thick as it is.@Novelty77 OCD tip of the day: If you pick up a BB and intend to wear it mostly on straps, I suggest you consider buying the strap version and buy the ss bracelet as an extra. Reason: because of the tight tolerance between the end links...
Wildsmith Covent?
@dopey What ever happened to your old Speedmaster? Did you end up sending it to an independent for service? Dunno if you saw this: http://www.hodinkee.com/#./undefined?&_suid=143619527849708436116416602216
