    yeah he responded. The other one is much cheaper but it has a chunk taken out of it which would kill the sale for me even if it was $300.

    Stowa Marine Original. I'm waiting on honey and navy gator straps to really make this thing pop. It has gained 1 second in the past 3 days. Pretty good. Pretty, pretty, pretty good.

    Beautiful watch gusvs !

    I support the idea of a brown/honey alligator strap. I just wouldn't go too dark of a brown with the silver face.

    Yes, I also support this idea. Here's a pic of my new strap in brown with a silver dial:

    My choice is the JLC Master Control Geographic. Thinking about getting a brown croc strap for it, what do you think (I use mainly brown shoes/belts)?

    Thanks! Needless to say, I am extremely happy with the watch. I agree, too dark would not be right.

    Here is the only watch I own:

    [​IMG]

    It was designed by Tokujin Yoshioka for Issey Miyake and made by Seiko. Obviously purchased for the design, not the quartz technology.

    Better photo (not mine):

    Cool! Is it two rotating 'wheels', or is it an LCD?

    Each disk rotates. The only bad thing about this slightly unconventional setup is that at certain points in the day it is actually a bit difficult to tell the time!
