Not too shabby, right? The mesh you chose has a less "fine" weave, which IMO matches the watch perfectly - a sporty, vintage looking, chrono with era-appropriate fittings. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

IMO mesh bracelets are making a small comeback now as the various brands rummage through their archives - I think Zenith and Breitling have some new releases on mesh bracelets now.

In other news, my ABP strap in peccary(!) arrived today. Despite warnings of failed expectations from the foo, construction wise it looks as nice as the Camille Fournet JLC OEM it will replace. So yay - nice new shoes for Red! Photos by the end of the week.

By the end of the week??? Shucks, that is a long time...

keith, i forgot, i agree with apropos, that of the options in that last post, i like the mesh the best.

My vote is mesh or black NATO. Six of one...

And now for something I don't think I have seen in this thread, a watch with one hand, the Pita Barcelona Minimal.



I love the idea of a single hand that takes 12 hrs to complete one revolution. This one is WAY out of my budget at $11K, but I have found a similar model by Schauer for under $4K.

I also like this regulateur.



What do y'all think of these unusual designs?

isn't it kind of a pain in the ass to tell time on that Pita?

I think the carbon fiber and mesh straps look best on the Zenith. Mesh gives it a kind of neat vintage look. None of the leather straps really work for me.

Congrats!  The combination of the textured dial, polished white gold markers and grey colour really give this piece a striking presence. It's always high on my list for a beach-to-boardroom "one watch" recommendation.

Very cool watch indeed.

This has long been my favourite thread on SF, but I have never had something to contribute until now. My humble contribution is a Stowa Marine Original Roman received from my gf. Seeing the shots I took I realize that it looks massive on my wrist, but that's just the angle more than anything.

Which kind of begs the question: can Patek Philippe actually come out with a sporty, rugged, modern watch that befits their company's traditions, history, and market perception?  I mean, even their "sportier" lines like the Aquanaut or Nautilus tend to be described more in terms of "classical" lines.  In terms of annual calendars, the 5205 is probably the most "modern" piece I've seen them produce - but it ain't really "sporty" or "rugged" (as some users in other forums have tried to describe it).

 

It is arguable that Patek should just stick to its knitting and not even try to be what they are not.

completely agree. Others do this very well and I think they'd dilute their brand. Better to work on strengthening what they do best. Has worked pretty well for them so far.
