    ^^ excellent ^^


    it would seem. though i was really hard on that strap, wore it daily for 3 summers in a row in 100 degree + heat for 15 hours a day. unloaded trucks..... all kinds of dumb crap.

    with my new and present job, another alligator should be just fine. i really want a JLC replacement, but those puppies do not come cheap. :(

    But their HMS1 is a thing of beauty: http://www.arnoldandson.com/home/royal-collection.aspx

    Too bad they make it 40mm and not 38 or so.

    The Stowa Antea KS that I bought 6 years ago (thanks for the rec skalogre, if you're still around) has appreciated in value enough to where I don't like wearing it daily any more.

    Considering getting a Vostok "Scuba Dude" Amphibia off ebay with a NATO strap as a banger.

    Thoughts? What strap would you guys get for the iconic blue "Scuba Dude"?

    I always like the look of rubber straps on divers but I've only ever used that strap once before and found it a bit uncomfortable. Also would be synthetic variation that is water proof, much like the strap on the Legend Diver.

    What do people think of black pvd cases? I love the look of them but am concerned how they will wear.

    From a site I was reading...

    CF makes ordering a custom strap very easy on the website.

    You can get it essentially unpadded for the ultrathin.

    Definitely a rubber strap.

    Maybe a Seiko-style one.

    Yeah its pretty awesome. I've tinkered a few times but end up overwhelmed with the choices.

    I think it'll come down to a honey brown strap or a blue strap for an alternate look...Im just procrastinating [​IMG]

    I just wish there were more pictures of others on GIS or elsewhere

    I should have a dark brown gator PAM strap (though less padded) in 2-3 weeks.

    What I like the most - you can get it with folded as opposed to wax edges.

    We'll see how the skin quality is but the price seems right.

    I was thinking that...but color? The obvious answer is blue, but every damn person in the world who has a blue Scuba Dude puts a blue strap on it.

    I saw the black Scuba Dude with a red rubber strap, and man did it look tits. Wondering what the red strap + blue Scuba would look like....in my mind it doesn't seem to go together right, but don't red and blue complement each other generally?

    I'd only wear a black rubber strap but that's just me.
