    I merely mentioned it in a list of watch companies I knew nothing about when asking for a reccomendation. Ater reading various threads, it seems this forum is not too favorable of B&R.

    People who disliked these watches previously are now suddenly interested in them. Perhaps another case of the Guido effect?

    I'm certainly not immune [​IMG] .

    - you guys crack me up![​IMG]

    Can we get some lume shots of the B&R?
    Here ya go from the other night. I changed to the black alligator as I was wearing black boots. (for some reason I thought I had posted these, I know I posted them on TZ & have converted a few - must be the Guido effect [​IMG] )

    Here's a real rarity, reported stolen on another board. It disappeared from a courier shipment in Italy: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What do you guys think of this combo?

    I'm thinking that it will only look better when the strap gets worn, abused, & spilt on!

    Especially in summer.

    FYI - the strap is made of a nylon sail-like cloth with a water-proof soft leather backing.

    I would dunk that strap in strong black coffee right now. It will do it a world of good. JMO. Larry

    In my blog, I post one vintage (in a VERY liberal view...) watch every Sunday, and I thought I might as well share it with you. [​IMG]

    anyone know of a good place online to get an aftermarket croco leather band with deployment clasp? or are these things typically sold seperately?

    that Cartier is such a classic, the very first design that I've seen in real life with screwed bezel.

    there are a few large-scale croc strap sellers on the timezone sale forum
    they also sell aftermarket deployants, though I find the OEM a bit nicer (and 5-10x the price)
    croc straps (new) range from about $75 to 250+ for the OEM

    I normally dont like fashion watches but for some reason I really like this? http://s7ondemand4.scene7.com/is/ima...82?$detail475$
    I don't know what kind of over-designed crap Zenith likes to put out now but you should look at Zenith El Primero powered chronographs from a few years ago, which have similar design, instead of that Burberry watch and its $10 quartz movement.

    I didnt at first, but the more and more I see that picture I really like the strap. Mind if I ask where you got it from?
