Has anyone tried the Wood and Faulk passthrough strap?
Is it thick?
That's sharp. Very sharp.
If you like it, don't mind hand wind, like the Beatles, and $160 isn't an unreasonable amount for your budget, why not?
Seiko SNZG15 on a Hermann Oak leather NATO. Hoping it patinas nicely
^ Nice combo up top!
If that comment is for me, thank you!
I crafted it because I couldn't find any leather NATOs I was happy with
Nice strap. If you don't have some already, pick up a bottle of this to start the patina - Leather Honey
Really softens up the rawhide and allows the natural texture to show through and start wearing naturally. In my experience, it only darkens the leather slightly at first, if at all.
Great looking watch.
Just as a warning, I've found Leather Honey to darken pretty significantly, so I only use it when I really want something darker.
Sinn is a little overpriced considering they use unmodified 2824 movements. The main attraction is the hardened cases and the tool-ish styling, but I feel it has departed some way from Helmut Sinn's original vision after the company's acquisition. I think the Stowa Prodiver is a better tool watch for the money.
I bought some from that link. I'll make another strap just to Honey.
Just Got this Michael Kors watch for 180.. I love it but not really a fan of the strap.. any ideas on a different one same color though??
After months of waiting, my SNKH47 finally arrived this morning. The first place I bought it from in Singapore actually never had it in stock but took a while to tell me. The second place eventually sent it but then it was lost in the mail. Luckily they had another in stock that I'm now wearing. According to their website, there's only one left in stock. If they indeed still have one, it's literally the last new SNKH47 I know of for sale.
The strap I mentioned above looked great in person, but I wasn't crazy about the finished edges on the sides. I ended up exchanging with the Crown & Buckle Bomber, which I'm very happy with.
All in all, I'm very happy to have my first automatic watch:
