You can order direct from Camille Fournet, including commissioning a made-to-order strap in your style and material of choice, via their website:

I noticed the site, but when you create a custom strap it's not what I would call "considerably less."  However after browsing the E-shop I noticed it's got a good selection and much more competitve prices.  Thanks though!

I like that, @tchoy - reminds me of the Aqua Terra, but very distinctively Seiko.

@mimo, are you really starting a breakaway thread / FAQ section...? 

 

You didn't read closely enough. :p  Welcome back!

 

I'm not breaking anything, I hope: this thread's now too big again for server-smoothness, and needs re-starting.  Fok consulted about making a watch sub-forum, to which the answer was a pretty firm "no thank you".  So we'll just have TWAT Part 3 or whatever, with the addition of a FAQ in the opening post, to make it less excluding to new posters.  I think that's the idea.  Why am I writing the FAQ?  I volunteered, shortly after I was volunteered!

This one on my wrist for the last few days. This is the last Omega I'll be buying from boutiques - decent service from the rep that helped us, but the way they've handled production, distribution, and communication of the 45th anniversary Snoopy Speedmaster has been atrocious and upset not just clients but also a lot of dealers.
 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Still, am I happy I've had my Snoopy since last Thanksgiving? Hell, yes.

Curious what's got you so up in arms, if you don't mind my asking.

 

Looking at that dial sure does make me smile every time.

Very nice! Love the bokeh in that shot too. I see I'm not the only one around here using a navy gator strap!

post #48281 of 48312
Looks like an awesome day for "a good walk spoiled" LOL.

We've got some perfect golfing weather at the moment too.... but alas, I am stuck in the office as usual.


FWIW, his would be my only watch on a navy strap (old pic):






I have also considered getting a pair of navy "shoes" for my Reverso, but as of now it's still on the OEM black gator.

I decided on the RG El Primero today.

I have the opportunity to purchase a lightly worn AP 15202ST initially sold in June 2015. It is a full set and the watch shows minor signs of wear. The watch has never been polished. The seller is asking 15500 euro along with trading in my Panerai 27B that I have in my signature for sale.

An AP dealer called me earlier this month, that he will be getting a 15202ST in April, I have read that a 10% discount on the watch should be achievable, bringing the cost on the watch BNIB to 20K euro.

What do you guys think, would be the financially more wise move? Buy the new one or the used one?

Considering you'd have to add your Panerai as it sits, you'd essentially be "selling" it for 4.5k Euro and getting a slightly used watch versus getting a BNIB.

 

Why not just sell it for 4.5K on the open market to make up the difference on the new one? You're asking 7k right now, it would probably move fast for 4.5. Or sell it for 7K and pocket the extra 2,500?

15.5K € plus a Panerai isn't exactly the deal of the century for a used 15202.

Anyway, this is not a difficult decision if a new one can be had for about the same price.
