    RE: NATO STRAPS

    try ZULU extreme straps available from gnomon watches

    http://www.gnomonwatches.com/accessories/zulu-extreme

    Ill post pix of mine when I get home

    it takes a bit of time coming from singapore (though I dont know where you guys live), but I am happy with my purchase

    UPDATE: ALSO congrats to scottcw on your watch purchase. Definitely a unique choice! I am always glad when someone brings something new to the thread! And no no frills, thats not license for a new baller purchase

    tho I am secretly hoping you bring us a laurent ferrier one day [​IMG]

    just saw this on tumblr, and i think it is gorgeous:

    The Triad by Peter Speake-Marin

    i think i would like it even better as a 2 handed watch, as i dont love the look of the 3 small clocks in there, but i guess then it would not be a triad. so, i guess its the general design i really like, but not the specific look.

    And case engraving is ugly?

    You're weird. But it is beautiful in an intriguing way. Like a hot woman with an unusually big nose.

    not all case engraving is ugly, but the OTT huge print engraving on that PP, coupled with the fact it was of the brand emblem, was horrid. it was reminiscent of an LV tie with huge LVs all over it. pass.

    Off you go Frilly - drive up over the weekend in your rented Prius, and pick this up for under fifty grand. A mere bagatelle... :)

    I hear you. That analogy has made me lean towards your view: anything with a label on it...well...I have this saying "label on the outside, wanker on the inside..."

    I usually admire PP but I have to agree with you. Pass, none for me thanks.

    A couple new ones
    arrived after months of wait
    they please me greatly

    Cushion case GP
    sits perfectly on wrist and
    less douchey than PAM :teach:

    Central minutes on
    chronograph make a shit ton
    of sense; why so rare?

    Vulcain has logic
    to wacky dial, but only
    Spock can understand

    I'm no pro diver
    so I don't care as long as
    guts stay dry in sea

    I dig the alarm:
    Loud enough to wake me up
    after party night

    Congratulations, Belli - nice to see some fresh ideas. I love the GP, and the Spock-watch is weirdly cool too.

    Oh Stitchy? Derek? Where are you boys? [​IMG]

    Thanks dude, the alarm diver is heaps fun with its babe magnet function Obvs kidding about woman-ray, but GP does get looks; men, sadly Some PAMs cool but none compel me to kop — "teach" gif grants immunity :teach: Debating them gets old fast. I say: "Hooray for everything, nice strap."

    Love the Vulcain
    Love the GP - no less douchey than a Rad (but IMO PAMS aren't douchey. Just people)

    :p

    This thread is amazing...

    Stumbled upon these forums while preparing for a wedding..

    Hoping someone here can guide/help me choose a watch as a wedding present...budget is 5k

    I have an omega speedmaster with the rolex steel band which I love but looking for a different look

    Leather/skin strap something classic that can be worn with a suit or jeans

    I dont care if its a designer name or not, as long as its quality

    Any help or starting point would be appreciated

    This was a wedding present from my wife's family. You'd need a discount to get it around 5k though [​IMG] [​IMG] It came on this brown which is probably a little more casual.. [​IMG]
