    Love the Sumo. Trying hard to resist the new Pepsi version.

    Very nice! Details please on both watch and strap (if aftermarket).

    I bought this watch on ebay late last year. The purchase price was just under the poor man's watch limit. It came on a calf strap that is embossed black crocagator. What color do you think would look best? I tend to like dark brown.

    I like it on black. Looks great with the current strap.

    Thank you. It is a Le Coultre. I have no idea if I got a steal or was taken for a ride. I liked the roman numerals on the dial, and the fact that it didn't have a date window.

    Anyone have a Steinhart Ocean Premium Titanium 500? And can you comment on how it performs and feels on the wrist?

    Nice. This is a grail of mine and would be my "One Watch" if I had to pick such a thing. I had one but sold it, and plan to acquire (and keep for good) another this year.

    Gotta knock you for choosing the date option, though. ;) And I'm normally a huge proponent of leaving Stowa fliegers on the original brown leatherstrap, but if you must use something different, your canvas strap looks nice.
