    I get what you are saying, but this is a 21mm wide lug, and I would not dream of wearing it with a rubber strap. Calf isn't such a bad suggestion though.

    casual or not, get that brown strap NAOW. its awesome. brown and blue is always a winning combo. adds some variation to the theme.

    Planning on it. It's a great looking combination that's for sure.

    In fact I think it's much better than with the blue strap.

    After getting the 1931 Reverso not sure what is next on the list. I've wanted a Santos 100 for some time but feel like the medium is the largest I'd go--specifically like the steel/rose gold model with croc strap. That, or a steel MC Memovox in good shape. I compromised on my first big watch purchase and went with the MC Chrono, and not the Memovox. MC Chrono is sold now for that reason and because I found I used the complication so rarely.

    Stitches, any leads? :D I could use another alarm clock.

    The Memovox is nice, but not great in terms of practicality if you are a heavy sleeper. A friend of mine had one, said it wasn't loud enough to be truly useful for him. He also said it was a function that he ended up not have much use for, got bored with it and sold it in less than a year. I like them as its kind of an interesting piece of watch history, but after looking at them I just don't get excited by them. The only JLC that really captures my attention, you already own...the Reverso.

    The IWC Portuguese is a gorgeous watch. I need to wait till after bonus season, but its on the list. that or a submariner, a watch that has grown on me of late.

    A store near my apartment sells vintage Rolexes and there is a Stainless Datejust that I've had my eye on. Assuming it was in great condition, what range of prices would be fair? It's a 1977 model.

    Yeah, I've never really been a fan of the RO, but that pic makes me want to rethink my opinion...

    Crosspost from Drake's thread:

    [​IMG]

    5512 inspired Drakes's tie

    Whether you think that the idea of having a tie inspired by a watch is cool or not, that's a great tie and even a little cheaper than Drake's own. If I was in the US (and wore ties more often) I would definitely consider picking that up. Only 50 made.
