    same here. I'm going get a honey and dark brown Alligator for my Port automatic pretty soon.

    The Santoni strap that comes with the IWC Portofino 8 day is really amazing. You can order it separately, but the price is really really steep.

    What wrong with the pose? I was sitting on the beach when I took the picture.

    They are pretty good for the price, but quite a long way from the Santoni quality I expect ... Feel just a tiny bit too flimsy. But they look good!

    This is my 5001 on a TWB honey alligator:

    I also like their Black Rubber Texture (Kevlar Look) for my 3717, but I can't seem to find a picture.

    great pic NS. The 5001 + Honey strap = awesome look.


    nice 5712! The bracelet feels like silk.



    I guess I forgot to put the disclaimer. Heh that wasn't my collection or straps. I'm planning to add a couple of Santoni straps down the road tho.

    Wait, you smell that?
    

    I love this Portofino. Definitely would consider it for a next watch, but at $18K, out of my budget. Hopefully just for now. Perhaps a Glaschutte. :slayer:

    Anyone know what watch this is? Found it featured in GQ's Guide to Men's Watches this month and I can't quite make out the name.

    TKE - nice suit but the watch and cuff links are a little much for me.

    Way too young to be wearing that watch and those links.
