Thanks all for the feedback.
Dino, I do apologize for not reading the earlier posts.In general, I find this watch thread full of rational, sensible blokes. But to see NFrills's taste in women is distressing for someone with the means to acquire what is able to.
I do not mean to cause you agita and angst with the size/wearer size discussion.I can just never get over some of the fits and discussions of even the highest of SF royalty and their Sunday best that are nothing so fantastic. Not all but more than zero(which is too many) and even more than a few.
: not that frilly's taste in women necessarily needs defending, but just to be clear-- the Kate Upton reference goes back however many pages ago-- when a couple of her pics had popped up in the thread. Long story. But thanks for contributing here. And yeah, obviously the yellow reflection on the Zenith is coming from my neckwear choice from that particular day....agreed, that would be Stitch
: glad you like the carbon fiber look. I had a thought overnight that perhaps this same type of strap in navy blue might be better, maybe with white contrast stitching? I believe Hirsch makes one, and it would be a little bit thicker strap than what's on the watch right now.apropos
: you may really
be on to something with that "sueded" look. The pics that you found are quite tasty. Thanks for looking them up. Your other recommendations are also appreciated. I do have a mesh that I could try, but mine is of the brushed variety, (also purchased for an Omega IIRC) and I think the seller called it a shark mesh, if you know what I mean....designed for divers.mimo
: probably the point you raised is at the heart of the issue.....I have essentially been wearing this as a dress chrono, assuming there is such a distinction-- but you're correct in that this watch is a colorful, sporty one. I can tell you that I have tried it on a few brown straps, albeit "dressier" types.....but again, none of them seemed quite right. Moar chunkiness
may be the solution.
If I get some time this evening, I will try and snap a couple of more pics showing different looks as fodder for debate.
