I meant something more along the lines of switching out the blue croc for brown smile.gif



Should make it a touch more casual.

Alligator is not that casual. Rubber or perforated calf strap would be for this watch. I don't think a nato or canvas strap would work well.

I get what you are saying, but this is a 21mm wide lug, and I would not dream of wearing it with a rubber strap. Calf isn't such a bad suggestion though.

casual or not, get that brown strap NAOW. its awesome. brown and blue is always a winning combo. adds some variation to the theme.

Planning on it. It's a great looking combination that's for sure.

 

In fact I think it's much better than with the blue strap.

After getting the 1931 Reverso not sure what is next on the list. I've wanted a Santos 100 for some time but feel like the medium is the largest I'd go--specifically like the steel/rose gold model with croc strap. That, or a steel MC Memovox in good shape. I compromised on my first big watch purchase and went with the MC Chrono, and not the Memovox. MC Chrono is sold now for that reason and because I found I used the complication so rarely.

Stitches, any leads? biggrin.gif I could use another alarm clock.

The Memovox is nice, but not great in terms of practicality if you are a heavy sleeper.  A friend of mine had one, said it wasn't loud enough to be truly useful for him.  He also said it was a function that he ended up not have much use for, got bored with it and sold it in less than a year.  I like them as its kind of an interesting piece of watch history, but after looking at them I just don't get excited by them.  The only JLC that really captures my attention, you already own...the Reverso.

The IWC Portuguese is a gorgeous watch. I need to wait till after bonus season, but its on the list.  that or a submariner, a watch that has grown on me of late.

+1 Not only that, its what I would call a modern classic.

Agree with you on the Datejust 2, which I actually wanted to like (if only to like something from Rolexes current lineup), but I much prefer something like this:

Love older Datejusts.

A store near my apartment sells vintage Rolexes and there is a Stainless Datejust that I've had my eye on. Assuming it was in great condition, what range of prices would be fair? It's a 1977 model.
