I respect your highly accomplished strap awesomeness, but I've never liked those perforated things.  Contrast stitching would definitely be appropriate, though - maybe just a solid, untapered, padded black calf leather with some eye-melting stitches?

Make your mind up, Nuke!  Yeah, that's sort of the mental picture I had.  Overall, it just strikes me as a rather unusual but also fun, not-to-be-taken-too-seriously kind of thing, and so a bit of colour or at least personality seems to be required to match it.  Anyway, I like it - look forward to seeing Max's pictures on the strap he ends up with (assuming he goes back!).

I could see it on something kind of 'humorous' like these from Gnomon (AWESOME Natos by the way):




Then again, during the summer I really like brightly colored Natos.

Something fun like this:



Which is, mind you, one of the coolest things I have seen in a while!

+1 on Gnomon, I have a few of their NATOs and have found them to be good quality.

For that particular Seamaster, I do like the idea of a perforated strap.

I have a black one that I wear on my Monaco from time to time. (It's usually on blue croc).

Never was a fan of the "large holes" style myself.

How about this one, via Pantime?






EDIT: sorry for the huge image.

And jeezus, what a bunch of enablers....Madmax hasn't even bought the watch yet!

Super cool Keith! I like it on mesh a bunch. And I like that strap suggestion.
post #22521 of 33500

Like that a lot! Have a thing for El Primeros, though prefer them with two registers. This one is well up there on the "I want" list. Oops, I mean the "I need" list ...

Great watch. Personally I wish the dials were just a bit farther apart but still this zenith is aces.

Although I'm not a huge NATO fan I like the blue and orange Dievas strap Newcomer recommended. That Omega is neat in a very retro way and that strap might go with its vintage feel

Here's a pic of it on a racing strap as suggested by Apropos.

Here's a link with some owners with other strap/bracelet options

This funky cool vintage Seamaster chrono caught my eye in a shop today. The strap is crap and too small, but I like this retro 70s look if I could find a strap with a good matching style. Apologies for the poor photo quality.

Agreed on the spacing. Wider is better, if you can get it right.

That's the issue when you are using a movement designed in 1969 to fit a chronograph with a 38mm case and trying to make it work in a much larger contemporary case size.  The subdials end up looking squished into the middle of what is a much larger dial.

Any of the Omega Lemania 5100 based auto chronos are Permanently Certified Cool. I gotta get one.
post #22528 of 33500

post #22529 of 33500
Thanks guys.

That's a beautiful trio of Omegas...
