Not yet, I would be curious to see how much clearance there is between the lug pin holes and the case. I would imagine its a very tight tolerance, which may make it difficult for a leather strap.

I could see that. I think the OF on a smoky grey/black croc strap would just be so good.

Bulgari does sell the OF on croc straps. But I imagine that the way Bulgari makes straps and the way you make straps differ...

I think the watch is too big. Omega made this one thinner and much nicer vs the first generation but I think they should’ve made this one 40mm vs 41mm
I agree. I think it should be more like 39mm. They are getting the CK859 to the store to let me try. Don’t think I’ll get it but curious to see what the fuss is about.

I've tried it on. It's a nice watch but the hours and minutes hand are too close to the same length. I'm also not a big fan of the strap even though it's supposed to have that casual looking strap.

Yeah, I am interested to try it on. The hands might bother me. I don't really care about the strap issue.
