BTW, I did finally get around to installing my new Radiomir strap.
It is a 27 X 22mm "Jules Verne" (Panerai OEM) that I got from my AD a couple months ago.
I figured this honey-croc look would be a nice change of pace, now that we've had some warm weather and sunshine.
Some may recall that I previously had my 210 on a darker calfskin strap from Panatime (I'd call it medium brown), with croc-grain and white stitching.
Here's some camera phone shots:
I will say that it feels super-soft and already broken-in. Should pair well with some of my my lighter colored shoes and belts that I will be starting to rotate in for spring/summer. (I have some tan driving loafers and a pair of AE McAllisters in walnut, for instance).
The matte look on this strap is a little different compared to the previous one, and hopefully this thing ages nicely and takes on some wear patterns that will give it "wrist character".
Plus it's always nice when the buckle hits in the very center hole and you don't have a lot of excess either way.
Hi I've recently took up an interest in watches. I am thinking of of getting a Tag Heuer aquaracer WAN2110 in the future. I just wondered if anybody knows if the hands could be replaced with a more familiar 'Mercedes hands' which I am using right now?
Does the mechanics accommodate the different style hands?
