Yeah, I've never really been a fan of the RO, but that pic makes me want to rethink my opinion...

Crosspost from Drake's thread:

Drakes_Grey_4.jpg?format=1000w

5512 inspired Drakes's tie

Whether you think that the idea of having a tie inspired by a watch is cool or not, that's a great tie and even a little cheaper than Drake's own. If I was in the US (and wore ties more often) I would definitely consider picking that up. Only 50 made.

So the strap that came with my IWC Big Ingenieur (German national soccer team version) is fine, but I'd like to replace it. It appears that the custom strapmakers I've spoken with all say I have to send in my strap, which will mean the watch is out of commission for a month or more (I'm in Seoul). 

 

Any of you guys have any bright ideas? I'd really like to replace my strap (or have a second option) without having to go so long without it--my wife's more or less commandeered my Aquatimer and it won't be easy to pry it from her vise-like grip...

If you want a second option, surely an authorized dealer could send you one??

Yeah, but I was hoping for something other than the OEM design/materials. I'd also like a deployant, if possible.

You can buy a deployment buckel and fit it to any strap.

Hughes Low is based in Singapore and does beautiful work

 

I know thats not Korea, but maybe it will cut the wait time down or a good excuse for a weekend trip? devil.gif

Be a man, get that Aquatimer back.

Very nice RO 15400.  Congrats and enjoy it.  Although as others have mentioned, I'd be nervous that the zipper from the glove would scrape the bezel on the RO.

Good OEM straps are few and far between, even on very expensive watches. And they are super expensive to order a la carte as it were.

Bob Davis' deployants are great. I probably have half a dozen and they have all worked perfectly for a long time.

The visible part isn't anything special (not as nice as an IWC or JLC deployant in that regard) but perfectly serviceable.
