Nice watch. A leather strap would look fine, but I think a diving watch would look better on a band that will hold up to being soaked - I'd prefer a rubber/kevlar/sailcloth strap, or a mesh or regular bracelet. I like it with the rubber strap you have.

I'm thinking you're probably right - thanks. Leaning towards a mesh bracelet as I don't own any - do you know of a good source?

I like the Omega-type mesh, with no tubes around the bars. For the tubed type, here's a good seller in Germany. it seems Jürgen's are considered the best. He also makes custom leather straps from old military pistol holsters, belts and leather gear, they look very nice, if you decide to go with the brown leather.

Thanks, that's exactly what I'm looking for! Wow, those Jurgens are nice. Pricey buggers though... hmm. Where are Omegas stocked?

I love photography, and I'd do it for a living if I could.

My dad was a professional industrial photographer and I've now found out that there's a serious market for his type of work. A friend of mine (who owns a gallery space) and I are working with an art photographer to put together a show of my dad's work, with a booklet, website, etc.

Sorry didn't mean to hijack the thread...carry on, gents!

I tend not to like such busy/showy watches so will probably be biased against. But, I can appreciate the styling of this. The croc adds a bit more refinement to it (as opposed to a rubber or steel), and I like the hobnail finish on the chrono pushers and crown.

And let's face it, black and red look totally kick-ass together. The brushed finish looks great with the colours.

I've not heard of Christoper Ward before - what are his watches like? The logo looks really cheap unfortunately.

- Not much as it looks like it is trying to bet everything.. I see styling cues from TAG (which is never a good thing)..

Holley-Molley ... the WWII holster straps are amazing! The mesh ones are really cool too!
