We joke a lot around here about "just buying both", but it's not every day that somebody really does it.


Re: straps, I have had good experiences with Panatime, (rubber and calf) but earlier this year I overpaid for an OEM Jules Verne (tan sueded gator) and have not regretted it one bit.

As for the Tank, I would think Camille Fournet would be pricey, but hard to beat.

Next week is promising some excellent pron in copious quantities LOL...

I will take lots of pornographic photos to prove that validate my choices.

I've have very good luck with Hadley-Roma straps.

That being said, I found the brushed links on my Rolex Oyster bracelets tend to hide scratches better than a lot of other bracelets I've seen. 

Below is the worst scratch I have gotten on my RO after 2 years of nearly daily wear.


Agree with the points made. With some care, the watch should not show much wears on bracelet and bezel. I own a discontinued 15300 which I'm absolutely happy with (not a daily beater though) where the overall built quality and price point won me over. Still lust for a 15202 but that would be another story.
And true enough the older brushed finished Rolex sports models do hide swirls better.

That being said, the new Lange 1815 up down is asthestically appealing as well but would be considered more as a dress watch to me. Both the RO and Lange are winners for me.

I like the H-R strap I got for my Hamilton. Wish they'd have more options available in a Short length. I also like Rios straps.

I suspect H-R and Rios might be considered by many TWATers to be too pedestrian.

@RogerP : If you do cave and kop, make sure the day/date line up properly.



^ That would not work for me, given my OCD-ness.

On another note, I'm amazed by how many brands are now making their own movements. When I was last deep into watch collecting, it was before ETA pulled the plug.

You mean really make-make or 'Bremont-make'?

I didn't think there were/are that many.

I.e. who (now) makes that didn't when you were last into watch collecting?
