Awesome tuna, MP!  I've always had a soft spot for that watch.

 

Frills - I dig your watch / shoe pics and emulate them as I can.

If you're interested I'd be happy to pm you the source. The one Mimo mentions sounds pretty badass as well!

TC kindly pointed me that way too, good shout you should look.

Love the colour of that strap, particularly liked the contrast stich which influenced me choosing, below.

Still looking good BD, remorse ain't coming!

I went from this-

AppleMark



To this OEM. I'm thinking of adding a tan antique croc too.

Indeed. There's a ton of great strap makers that aren't so well known. I'm on the road now, but remind me and I'll list a few of my personal favorites. Or shoot me a PM with any questions.

@Cleav. Nice Radiomir. I was definitely eyeing that one. I was always on the Luminor train but trying on a few Radiomirs really piqued my interest in them.

So very nice Mk IIs are available for cheap, at least considering what a nice chrono it is, in a fun and funky package.

Here is an old pic of mine, I dug it out tonight and will be wearing it tomorrow. Thanks for reminding me, Omega icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I have the correct bracelet, but I much prefer it on mesh. Omega makes the best mesh!

This is a great watch. I have the Speedmaster 125, which is different, but a similar aesthetic.
