I'll have to keep that strap guy in mind, thanks!
Okay - thanks. I have gone the Omega accesory route before, but when I see $400 for a strap, I think how far that would get me toward a good pair of shoes and I invariably turn away. I have had some very nice custom straps done in the $150 range from this guy:
So I will probably go that route. Just means I have to wait a bit, unless there is something in the strap drawer that would work.
Which reminds me, I have a couple OE Patek straps that I took in a trade that I need to get around to posting for sale.
