I had an Ahoi Atlantik for about 6 months that I really loved, but eventually I decided that thanks to the long lugs, it was just a little too big for me. I've also had a 35mm Tangente for a couple of years that now seems to small. So the 38mm seems to be just about right, but I don't like the proportions of the 38mm Tangente as much as I do on tr Metro.post #44782 of 483126/30/15 at 12:07amI dropped into Jean Rousseau in London at the weekend to have my Reverso fitted for a new strap. Just black grained calf - nothing crazy. They have a really nice selection and it was very quick and easy to spec my order. In and out in under ten minutes. £85 all in, which seems very reasonable. Expected to take c 4 weeks so I'll report back.
At those prices I'm very tempted to get a couple of options for some of my other watches as it makes them more versatile. Does anyone have an example of a simple steel Rolex Date with a leather strap other than black?post #44783 of 483126/30/15 at 6:47amQuote:
Looking good my man.
I tend to go for lighter colored options for the summer, straps that can take a beating and that I can bring into the sand or water. To that end, it's usually a RubberB for the Rolex divers for me, though I have yet to switch stuff out.
Went to Des Moines last week. My first time in Iowa. Wore this.post #44784 of 483126/30/15 at 8:55amYeah, I've got an after-market rubber strap for my Panerai, but that Jules Verne looks so sharp I might just leave it on there for now.
(Not like I really dive with it anyway).
But I should have some time this weekend to play around with my watches and look at some different combos.
Also, Nautilus looks killer as usual!post #44785 of 483126/30/15 at 10:12ampost #44786 of 483126/30/15 at 11:07ampost #44787 of 483126/30/15 at 1:30pmQuote:
Relative to the US MSRP of USD7500, and grey market deals of anywhere from USD6000-USD7000, that ain't a bad price.
Occasionally I will hear of rumors of a 114060 selling BNIB for under USD6000, but I'm not sure how true those are (unless we are talking about dealer prices, and not end user prices).post #44788 of 483126/30/15 at 1:55pmpost #44789 of 483126/30/15 at 3:02pm
You are perilously close to looking like an actual PP advertisement there. Except the monogram. Which I imagine is very useful in settling any disputes at the laundromat.
It is against TWAT byelaws to say such a thing without photographic evidence. FWIW it's the loveliest strap I've ever handled.
I can't help but feel commiserations are more appropriate than congratulations.
Now that's an entrance!
Also, selling something is not "unfortunate" unless you do it accidentally. /pedantrypost #44790 of 483126/30/15 at 3:19pmQuote:
Constructive criticism, I love it. That's one reason why I entered this forum - I want to expend my english language skills.
Here is my daily summer watch by the way. :)
16570 from 2007 Z-serie (with 3186 movement). White dial and sun is a great combo and I really appreciate nato straps.
