    I like leather straps with this buckle. Do they have a special name for this type of strap?

    Can't see it real well. But I guess the strap is just a regular strap, but the buckle is a deployant buckle.

    More specifically, that one looks like a butterfly deployant. EDIT: and the band almost looks like it could be pigskin or some other less common leather.

    That's more of a dress watch.

    But less is more, as far as dress goes.

    - I do like the older dials on the Tudor & Rolex.. Less bling!

    Few of the same 233J (I know there is not much love for Panerai's here but I wear for me not the haters..[​IMG] )


    Is the 233 in the 47mm Fiddy case? Looks like it...

    Looks like a, as said, normal butterfly deployant on a Hirsch Ascot (or similar) strap to me.

    It's a "Hirsch English Ascot Band". Do an eBay search and several should come up. A store called \tTop of The Line For Less sells both the bands and the clasps...shipping is really fast too. I don't know anything about watch band quality, but this one seems good.

    I've developed a slight obsession with solid gold LED watches from the '70s. These were expensive watches back then, the height of technology. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I share your fascination. The one for which I am keeping my eyes pealed...1976-ish:

    Not quite watch p0rn, but has anyone noticed Tom Brokaw's Big Pilot?

    Nice to see one 'in the wild,' but I'm not so sure it works with a suit:

    [​IMG]


    I noticed this on Meet the Press last week. I don't think it works at all - far too big and sporty for a suit, especially with the riveted pilot-style strap and that huge crown. He also seems to wear it quite loose - I noticed it flopping around on his wrist quite a bit. Otherwise he is very well put together - but he needs a proper dress watch.

    Fifties Oris, the dial has faded to a dark brown, so I put a brown croc strap on it: [​IMG]

    Cartier Santos today. The gold frame is prone to scratches, and has picked up a few. Apologize for the rather graphic wrist hair.
