    Rarely wear take off the Omega long enough to wear this one, but everytime I do I wonder why I don't wear it more often. Officina Del Tempo on strap: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Here is one of them:

    I got those in a box set with my Tommy Hilfiger watch. So all of those bands are Tommy Hilfiger, I believe they can be found individual somewhere on the web. [​IMG]

    It looks like a common Nato strap, but the woven texture is different, rather than vertical lines straight across.


    Thank you. They're nice straps.

    I don't typically like gold hardware. Just not my thing, but this Seiko is gorgeous and elegant.

    Any idea what it's called, a model number, etc?

    John, Love the watch!! I can see you wearing that! [​IMG]

    BTW, gents - I'm looking for an old fashioned, 14K gold daily wide-up watch, preferably with a dark-colored face, but not necessary. Would prefer square body, if posssible, without breaking the bank..Any ideas??? [​IMG]

    http://www.good-stuffs.com/Sea-Gull-...tch-_p_21.html I'm going to buy this one soon (roman numerals) [​IMG]
    Both look great, but I especially love the Roman numeral version! Great choice. And that looks a lot like one of the discontinued models that Sea Gull USA used to carry.

    ^ That Roman numeral Sea-Gull looks so good, I had to forcibly restrain myself from buying one the instant I saw it.

    Yes, but look at the bright side, it's a relatively inexpensive temptation, when you do give in eventually. [​IMG]

    I'm sure I will give in at some point. I often do [​IMG]
