The day ends at midnight. I just returned home from playing in a golf tournament...the beauty of living in Florida.

As it stands right now my ranking is
1A) Rolex Submariner
1B) Chopard
2) Rolex Presidential

I plan to make a final ruling by 10PM between Chopard and Rolex.

I have ruled the Chopard out for now. I think it's going to be the Submariner. The only question left...do you think a Sub would work with a brown leather strap? Either way I am going to lose the steel band in favor of a softer look of leather.

That is totally up to you. I quite like the metal bracelet, but if you like the way it looks with something else, go for it. Plus you can always switch it back later if you want to.

CTL - I've only ever seen Sub's on bracelets or a nato strap.  Maybe you can change the TWAT mindset that a Sub can look good on leather.

I think it does work with certain vintage subs....something with patina, maybe a chocolate dial...yes.

But for the most part, I think bracelet for newer models.

Saw a vintage red sub on a leather strap today at the pop up flea in soho. It worked.
post #26888 of 48312

If you like that sort of thing, one Sub that would work on a strap is a gold one...maybe?

post #26889 of 48312
Nah. Bracelet all the sub way imho

Nato works just fine for me.

The steel bracelet is just too cold and common for me. I just want something a bit different. No offense to those who like the steel. I am thinking something like black, or brown alligator or ostrich. Something with texture.

Hey, knock yourself out, CTLION. Absolutely. Try some different combos. That's one of the more entertaining aspects of this hobby.

But I guess it's the incongruity of a modern dive watch on brown gator, (for instance) that just throws me off a bit... and I'm a huge fan of brown gator straps. Again, I think it's different when you've got a vintage piece, or one that definitely will not be seeing any time in the water whatsoever.

Regardless of you come up with, post some pics for us.

I'll be open minded, I swear. biggrin.gif





On the topic of brochures, (and Rolex) I just got this little trifle in the mail from my AD:






I think he must know that I'm still jonesing for one of these:

Just noticed your sig....hmm!

CTLION have you pulled the trigger???

Keith T - the holidays offer so many temptations... My willpower is fine... It's my "won't power" that needs improvement.

The Nautilus was designed by Patek to be a sportier watch. But can it withstand the rigors of gingerbread house construction with a four year old? We shall see.
