I think I've found a winner. Not NATO but rubber, but suitable for my purposes - was looking for something a little more casual.

Wore mine for over a year almost every day. Never got a single comment.

Good choice.

I actually like this a lot, and congrats on the purchase!

I like this pairing.  I really like the rubber wristband

Hi there, F. Piguet caliber buddy biggrin.gif I just got my ROC back from service. I think I handed it over to my AD late October dozingoff.gif Long wait.

Anyway, AP were nice enough to include a travel box smile.gif

That box probably costs a couple of bucks to make.  But makes you feel like a million to receive.  Excellent customer relations, and good to see an "indy" leading the way.

Black with an orange stripe might work...an all orange strap I think might be a bit too much (at least for me).

^Yeah or something like what Omega does for the Planet Ocean

Sometimes I just feel a little ballsy. A while back I was itching to find something I could put a bright red leather strap on and wear with a suit just for the hell of it.

Jeez that ROC is a chunk of gold. Would make a great paperweight. What a beauty. You must be delighted to have it back after that weight [edit: ha! I meant wait!]

I like that VC - I looked at one at an auction a while back and liked the look of it - one of those watches you don't see that often.

Edit 2: when I got my Speedy the guy threw in a really neat travel case. At first I thought it was a sunglasses case (thought wtf?) but inside is a really neat foam thingy to hold your watch safely in transit.

Great looking Rolex

I  recently got  Longines Evidenza chrono, one of the nicest Tonneau in my opinion

Just received the shogun! Easily exceeds my expectations. Given how many reports there are of poor dial/chapter ring alignment (prominent sellers even provide a disclaimer about it) I was very concerned that it would be screwed up, but it looks close enough to perfect for me. I had asked the seller in Japan to confirm alignment but given the language barrier it wasn't clear if they confirmed that it was perfect or confirmed they had the watch in stock. In any event, here's a quick snap for reference. Should have my moonwatch soon to complete the watch spree!
