I like the strap but not with the Daytona.
Many! You name it! Would you like to try some! No seriosly, why would you ask a vet something like that( no need to answer,just leave it be)? In person I would insult you to the highest degree! And I dont care if you are a vet yourself! Thanks for crossing lines you shouldnt!
Just to echo everyone else...Sinn no doubt. Doxa can be fun, but id still pick a sinn.
Man, i cant tell you how much i wanted one of those. I used to stop by the jewelry store near my job when i was in high school at least once a week. I still think about getting one just to fulfill that boyhood desire haha.
yep. 100% fake.
fuckign love it.
It's truly impossible to beat the original bracelet for this watch, but it's nice to have options. Of my 20 mm straps, I'm thinking these might be two of the better alternate candidates...
its really amazing what difference a strap can make on a watch.
I'm not so sure that IWC is a "fake." It clearly states the watch was a pocket watch, and finishing was not common in pocket watches at the time. I am by no means an expert but people are hastily jumping to conclusions. Its a franken something but does not claim to be anything else.
There is something about those Reverso's on tan ostrich that is absolutely AWESOME. Probably one of my favorite combos.
Also, that may be the fakest IWC I have seen in quite some time. The IWC font is way off, it is usually thinner, and more refined. Also, the movement is a dead give-away. Unless they pulled a Panerai, IWC would not let something like that leave the factory.
Im actually diggin the cordovan strap on the other one
Thanks, me too. It's my go-to on the Reverso; I love NOMOS's shell cordovan.
You can put a Daytona on just about anything and it still doesn't look bad. It's a great strap but to me, it is too thick and rugged for a watch like the Daytona. Something a bit more streamlined and sleek might work better.
I think I should get that cordovan strap in black for my Sinn U1.
Two issues with that, unfortunately. One, the unpadded NOMOS straps might not be such a great match for the >14mm-thick U1. Two, they don't make them in 22 mm. Also, I'm not a fan of putting diver's watches on straps that are happier when they're dry, although cordovan is much better than leather in this department.
Sorry, really don't like it with the leather Nato.
The tan ostrich is probably your best bet since its so neutral, although I think I like it more on the Reverso than I would on a Daytona. The darker strap with red stitching is interesting, but it probably wouldn't be my first choice for the Daytona (for me the red writing on the dial is enough). I'd probably look for a dark strap with white stitching.
this. also, it claimed to be from 1918 and i did not see any mention of the watch being gold. i dont think they made watches like that in steel then, but i could be wrong.
also, the whole thing looked off, and if the price is too good to be true, it usually is.
it can change the entire look of the piece.
HEY! panny movements are quite nice!
