Not sure if serious, but of course you can wear your dive watch all year.

If you need any inspiration, a Seiko diver (check here, if you have access), the Seiko 62mas, and a Panerai Submersible (last on this list) were all used in polar expeditions, with limited diving I suspect.

Also, I've worn my Sub through 30 winters with almost no ill effects.

I go between considering selling this watch to wearing it - I should probably get the steel bracelet for it as well. Doesn’t get a lot of wrist time, but I thought it went well with my blazer and shirt today.

Looks like your strap is on backwards...
When I first got it, I thought so too, but look at the hardware on the other side - Tudor script is showing correctly. I think this strap is designed that way

Weird, it does look intentional from the underside. I think I'd be forced to flip it the other way around, just because it would drive me nuts.

Looks good overall, though.

That arrangement is pretty common (perhaps even standard?) on straps with deployments. All of my deployments (Patek, Lauren Ferrier, Lange, etc) are set up to have the long side wrap around at 6 o'clock.

But... why?

It looks fine to me. 🤷‍♂️

Most people are going to be admiring your watch and not even think about the strap arrangement.

Bought a half dozen straps during Delug's BF sale last week and they arrived yesterday.

Somehow didn't realize that I bought three similar in color straps for the GS, but they are all different materials and the tone looks really good with the green dial, so it makes okay sense. I managed to vary it a bit better for my Nomoses though.

Supposedly the watch fits better when the strap is reversed on a deployant.
When I reattach the straps on my Santos, I sometimes don't pay close enough attention and mount them in reverse. I can tell immediately once I try to strap it on though as it feels awkward when its the wrong way. Though on the Santos its much less obvious to the eye regardless as the tail tucks under the strap.

On the Santos the deployant and strap are so comfortable that for me it hardly makes a difference, other than it's a bit awkward closing it in the reversed direction. On the old Lange deployants, reversing the direction can make a huge difference in comfort and fit.

Its really the only deployant that I've experienced that I can tolerate. I think its mainly the tail sitting in between the skin and the metal of the clasp.

A Lange Sohne big wigs from Germany were in London a few weeks ago and told the AD here that the Zeitwerk is being discontinued...
