    So my G-Shock has arrived but I am at work so haven't had a chance to handle it yet. My wife signed for it and opened the package up to check it out. She texted me just to tell me it's massive and I could see her rolling her eyes through the text message.

    ... at least I think she was talking about the watch and not trying to stroke my ego.

    I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive (up to $60) watch strap that is aesthetically similar to the black leather strap that comes with the IWC mark xviii:

    If anyone can point me to something like that I'd really appreciate it.
    Thanks!

    Border line PMW but they can be had for under 1K if you wait for sales.

    Actually love the Sinn more than the first day I got it. Really a great simplistic watch.

    Steinhart GMT matched the ensemble beautifully today. I have heard complaints that Steinhart copies Rolex...I don't really see that. I find them an excellent PMW. 20170726_101037.jpg 20170726_065102.jpg
