    looking for a strap suggestion...Looking for a strap which eliminates the gap btwn the strap and the case... here are two examples:

    http://www.prestigetime.com/item/Ome...20.01.001.html

    http://www.prestigetime.com/item/Bre...E92%7E9zu.html

    Looking for aftermarket since OEM is a rip off.

    Edit: Also looking for a calf skin with a croc pattern like the omega.

    Thanks!


    Several vendors have curved end straps. Here's one that sells curved-end faux-alligator Hirsch on TZ SC

    ^^^ I really don't get the curved end idea. Who cares if there's a gap between the strap and the watch case? It's natural! I'm sure Eric Glennie would think it's a good idea--that's how bad an idea it is.

    oh come on... There's been curved end straps for many decades - it's hardly "innovative" in an EG kind of way... It's just a slightly different aesthetic - I think it sometimes work well on sports watches that can look too bulky on a square-end strap (helping transition more gradually from puck to a thin strap), but not something I worry about too much

    Oh, I know they're not new. I just hate the idea. Too fussy and contrived. If I bought a watch with a curved-end strap, I'd swap it out immediately. Blegh.

    I know next to nothing about watches, but I like this one which is available for slightly under $5k (it is used). Model 3210 BA. Is this a fair price?

    Kuro, I don't know much about Breguet, but there are a lot of counterfeit watches out there, and if you don't really know watches, it's dangerous to spend $5k on a secondhand watch online.

    Sorry, I should have added that this is from a very reputable reseller in Japan. I am sometimes silly, but not that silly.

    Very nice watch. Seems too good to be true at under $5k. If you can confirm authenticity, grab it.
