Not bad, there's at least one member on TRF who's done it, but for me the rubber strap for this one is such an integral part of the whole package I see no reason to do it.

Gents,

 

A while back I asked for some suggestions on watches that would help commemorate a big shift in my career. I got some great suggestions from VC, PP, AP and ALS. I finally decided on one to go forward with and will be picking it up in the middle of January in NYC. I've been too excited to wait to have it in hand before dropping this teaser.

 

Thanks for all the help, you guys were tremendous enablers!

I agree. Funny thing, years ago when rubber straps first began to appear on high end sport watches I thought it somewhat incongruous and wasn't a big fan. Now I've come to see them as a viable option for more and more watches.

I agree the rubber is perfect for it.

Post as much as you want. That is an awesome watch. I have my people out, scouring the planet...:cool: 

 

Thanks! Friends who searched on the eBays of this world mentioned that the asking was USD18K. I think that's way too much, even despite the hype and such.  It's certainly not easy to come by, though the preordered units have been trickling in.

That's exactly why it appealed to me - aside from the Speedy + Snoopy's history together and all.  It's a TON OF FUN watch.

working hard and saving hard to add these to my collection... Only two watches that really grab me by the balls and say buy me!

I'm not sure on the Swedish part, but it is a military piece of some kind from the early forties.  Dial has been redone - and is a very faithful rendition of the original which was quite badly chewed up.  I know purists hate redials, but there is a point at which trying to apply the term "patina" is an absurd stetch and this one was past that point.
