    Nice! But I did say my offering was humble [​IMG]

    Most 27 year olds I know wear watches made by Diesel, Nixon, Fossil, Calvin Klein or TAG etc, so I think I'm still slightly ahead of them at least!

    It is indeed. here's the other side. [​IMG] The strap has been changed though to one of ABP’s special tanning Alligator straps. best strap maker out there IMHO...
    Here's mine from today - not a "watch porn" worthy shot, but I've posted it here before. I also switched the band - in this case to a rolex alligator band. I had a hard time finding something thin enough to work with the reverso's deployant buckle [​IMG] Here's a better shot from a week or two ago [​IMG]

    Outstanding! The family history really adds immeasurably to the charm.

    Have you had the dial restored? It's in great shape for one that was carried everyday.

    Big A's JLC and Singulars old beat up Rolies are sweet! Here's my Tissot Seastar 1000. I am considering a different strap for it (not a bracelet). Would a brown leather strap work with this somehow? [​IMG]

    Thanks! It's a Sigma 30 1.4. Wonderful little fat lens. It's "bokeh" - no R. Pet peeve of mine. You can hate me if you want. [​IMG]

    I used an "isofrane-alike", a mesh bracelet and a tropic rubber for my modded Seastar 1000 (but think a Zulu strap would do just as well).

    It really is a great lens and can be had for under $400 used easily at places like FredMiranda.com

    I love photography, and I'd do it for a living if I could.

    Funny, I was literally just looking at mesh bracelets. Are they all "made equal"? Can you link me to one you used/like?
