What a sneaky little bastard the zuglet can be. It has now officially invaded the watch appreciation thread. LOL

I know...98% of the people here are scratching their heads trying to figure out what the heck the three of us are talking about.

Extremely light and comfortable. Both are very light and the design of their straps are extremely well executed.

I'm pretty sure I've posted them all at one time or another, but I currently own the following.

PP 5711, PP 5167, AP 15300, Rolex 1680 Red, Rolex 116520A50B7859., Rolex 16610LV, Rolex 16710, and Omega 357350..

Not a fan of either.  To me its like looking at half a Nautilus or half a RO.  To me they are designs that only work well on an integrated bracelet.  YMMV, but I find Nautiluses and RO's on straps very undesirable.  Wishing you luck with whatever you decide.

Thanks, Dino. While I get that the RO bracelet is a very iconic part of the watch, I find that RG ROC on brown croc to be a real stunner. It's one of the few ROs I've ever seen in person, and it haunts me.

BTW, looks like the Entourage movie is going to feature a ton of APs. Looks like a ROC on Eric and a Diver on Drama.

+1 Same here.  I miss having new episodes to watch so I can't wait for the movie to be released.

 

As for ROs or Nautiluses, while I like them in RG, they would have to be on a bracelet or I'd stick with steel.  I don't like the little end pieces that attach to the leather strap.  I have tried on a RO in RG on a bracelet and its a beautiful watch in rose.  However, it gets very, very $$$$$ when its in all gold including the bracelet.  Wishing you luck on your next watch adventure.
