Does anyone have experience with both Crown and Buckle + Gnomon nato straps? Is one better quality or are they negligibly different?
post #2732 of 4039
I have primarily Gnomons and they are pretty good, pretty solid. With Natos though, if you tend to wear one a lot or over a long period of time, that one hole you use will usually get a little stretched right? Maybe a little frayed? It's to be expected and sometimes you can repair it with a lighter.... Well I just got a C&B nylon nato (my only other is a C&B leather nato, which is holding up fine though admittedly I don't wear it often) and I noticed that after about 2 weeks of only occasional wear, the hole has frayed/stretched a little bit more than I would have liked to see already... Not sure if it's enough to warrant a complaint or return to C&B so I have to wear it a little more and see.

Has anyone ever heard of a Seiko 5 that comes on a leather band (instead of metal or nylon)?

Just replace the strap yourself. Who cares what it "comes with"

Does anyone know how to set the date on the seagull 1963 without it resetting to the 30th all the time?

I'm looking for a new watch that I could wear just for going to the grocery, park, beach, etc.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello all,

 

I'm looking for a new watch in the 250-500 range (yes, sort of broad, but I'm open to options). I was wondering if anybody could give me some suggestions to look into? I've done a bit of searching and came across a few I liked but nothing stood out as 'BUY THIS NOW' to me.

 

Anyways, what I'm looking for:

 

Brown leather strap (I guess I could buy this separate if necessary)

Gold colored case

Clean looking face (not a chrono).

 

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Poor man's thread is right- I like classic, elegant, very thin and timeless in a watch- fell in dog-drooling lust with this-

 

 

 

Bought this, and love it- now I have to figure out what to spend the $19,835 I saved on...   smile.gif
