    Put my 18k GMT on a Hodinkee strap, and changed to an old brown bezelinsert with a nice shiny brownpurplish patina. I know for a fact that this patina was the result of a short period in the last owner´s oven, and not years and years of sun bleaching :lol:

    I like the result quite a lot better than the previous configuration of black bezel insert and croco strap :satisfied:

    Fantastic. It was actually your photo of that watch on black NATO in this thread about three years ago that directly led to me getting a GMT. I bet it looks amazing on the wrist.

    The skeleton model in SS and RG have been around for a while, just very limited numbers are produced each year. This specific watch is a limited edition of 40 pieces in platinum for the royal oak's 40th anniversary.

    You mean If I said it sucked then you will agree? Why? Because it doesnt look original? You gotta be an artist to see why this works! I'm not an brown strap type of guy either ,I would have gone for a black! But, you gotta admit it spices things up abit[​IMG]

    Wow. I've got to say that I'm not a fan of AP RO, but if I saw this one in the flesh I'd definitely look and examine.

    The strap mitigates but does not negate the intrinsic snooze that is Rolex.

    This watch; something needs to be moved! Either logo or reserve indicator! Or maybe its the wrong type of hands being used, I duno[​IMG]
