    Also, in regards to the GP, great technology, but I would love to see it (a) in a simpler watch, and (b) not "tourbillonified" (as the Hodinkee article mentioned). I see no reason why this technology cannot become 'mainstream.' I would love to see it in their more classical watches. Plus, you get to see the beauty of it without the display back, which is nice.

    All in all, great work by GP. I look forward to seeing the actual tests.

    Newcomer - that strap looks great - really brightens up the appearance of the watch. I had a similar tan JLC ostrich strap on my old Master Reveil. Unfortunately, I found that in the summer it showed sweat stains all too easily, and I ended up switching it out for a CF dark brown croc. I do hope yours serves you better down south.

    Eek! Well, fortunately my wrists do not sweat very much (if only the same held true for the rest of me!), but I could definitely see that being unappealing. Thank you very much!

    Looks better together than i had first thought, though it still looks off on the MUT moon to my eyes. That said, I love the strap, wear it in good health.

    I definitely understand where you are coming from, and I hope to do so!

    I think that a Navy and Dark Brown Croc are both in order though. I think those would be more successful combinations, at least holistically speaking.
