I remember a nice wrist shot posted by I_D.

Great watch though. I like it best on the bracelet and on a black perforated strap. Also looks surprisingly good dressed up in honey gator.

+1 & thank you

I have got mine on a red and white NATO right now. I am not entirely proud of myself, but it is a nice reminder of my Canadian heritage icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

while we're on the subject though, a friend has proposed a trade: my speedy for his iwc 3717 (the older, 42mm version). i admit i've always had a soft spot for that watch. would you do it?

actually, i had to look them(3717, 3706) up, but not really. the speedmaster is really iconic, imo. i realize it every day, I wear it. although, I'm not so keen on compliments from guys, you get them a lot from crown wearers. real story.

ps: fucking reset pusher is broken for the second time although I never use this function. ridiculous.

they fixed it with the first big service. actually, I found a very nice watchmaker recommended to me by the Master Distributor of Rolex for Austria. He just works on my grandfathers watch. I'll get my hands on it first week of august and I'll ask him what to do?

I don't need the function but I'm honestly with you. this has to work. maybe, our mankind hasn't been on the moon and the speedmaster is just a meme biggrin.gif
