Not a 7751. You just can't move subdials. If it's a Valjoux 775X movement, it's the 7753 with an additional module for the triple date and moonphase.

Leather nato is actually not that bad of an option:
On the higher end of spectrum, you can always get shell cordovan natos from Deluca or Chrono24

As for availability, IMHO NYC is generally not a true measure of availability of a watch. NYC is well known for lots of watch shops: ADs; boutiques; gray market; and vintage shops. It also probably per capita has more people buying high end watches than other cities in the States. Hence ADs there generally sell out of more popular Rolex, Pateks, Pams etc faster than in other parts of the country. I always find NYC is a blast when it comes to doing watch window shopping, however, I've always found availability and prices (on new pieces) to be better almost anyplace else. Hence, I think if the OP visited or called some ADs outside of NYC regarding a new Nautilus he would probably find one or have a relatively short wait.
The Stern interview is entertaining, but I usually take those interviews with a grain of salt. The stuff he says about the Nautilus is nice but it reads like sales talk intended to help bolster sales. It doesn't take away from the watch's beauty or desirability, but they are available if one shops around.
P.S. I've also noticed some issues with my paragraphs not separating in some posts.
There's a world outside NYC? Oh wait... whoops! Heh heh.
I actually source any new Pateks I will end up getting from an AD in North Carolina for the biggest discounts I can get - unless I want to purchase a piece to maintain / continue my existing AD relationships in NYC.
Hey, my paragraphs separate again just fine!post #19552 of 483134/1/13 at 6:00pmQuote:
Congratulations! This is a lovely piece!post #19553 of 483134/1/13 at 6:11pmpost #19554 of 483134/1/13 at 10:32pmpost #19555 of 483134/1/13 at 10:52pmpost #19556 of 483134/2/13 at 12:30amQuote:I appreciate Cartier's history, even though the watches don't really fit my style, but I don't think I'd go for an ETA-based one with a date window. It's a very compromised watch. I'd prefer the slimmer Piaget Cal. 430 manually-wound version if I was looking for a simple Cartier in that general design, though it's still not ideal since it's a round movement inside a square case.
I suppose the price of the steel Solo seems reasonable if you're keen on the watch and aren't fussed about the movement or the date cutout messing up the dial. There are better alternatives in the genre for the price of the mostly-18K-with-el-cheapo-steel-back version you posted, though.post #19557 of 483134/2/13 at 12:55amNot to mention cheaper side scale alligator strap!
I noticed an odd trend when I lightning browsed the Cartier store in Singapore last month - the cheaper and quartz models had side scale alligator straps, the better/more expensive ones had belly scale straps. Small sample size (maybe 15 watches), but still.
Quite amusing when you notice things like that.Quote:

Thanks for your advice, honestly I'm not a watch buff whatsoever and I like the Cartier for ite asthetics only, I really have no knowledge of the straps (side vs belly alligator straps fot example). I was leaning towards the Steel solo as its cheaper and I'm practically going for the look only so the gold may be overdoing it.
Speaking of alternative, what would you recommend?post #19559 of 483134/2/13 at 1:57amI think it's generally a good idea read through this thread, or at least the last 30-50 pages, because this is the 5th or 6th time I've seen this question asked. You'll probably learn a lot more other cool watch stuff you never knew about as well.
The short answer is the JLC Reverso Classique or GT, but many people buy Cartiers for reasons distinct from horological credibility so YMMV.post #19560 of 483134/2/13 at 1:59am
Thank you all - I couldn't resist the 60% discount.
My first pair of GO and my first rubber strap watch too....
Looking to get some bad boy black croc strap to go with them soon...
