    I usually pair it with a grey elephant-skin strap.

    Are those cigarettes Chunghwa?, and did the lighter belong to a Suadi Royal Family?

    I'm picking this up in a couple hours and I'll post some pics but I'm thinking about putting on a NATO bond style strap. How do you think that would look compared to the bracelet?

    Both will look good. Also try leather straps (honey, black) and a canvas strap. Fun to play around with straps.

    Congrats

    This is both true.

    I haven't seen Chunghwa's in wide pack like that before, are they available in the US?
    I have smoked the 11mg and the 15mg and the ones available in SoCal has no Tar content but is around 10mg

    Crappy pics but I'm pretty psyched about this even though it's very modest compared to everything on here. Pictures don't do it justice. It's such a solid well built piece. I don't know how they sell it for what they do. Perfect size too at 44mm. Big enough to stand out but not too big where it looks tacky. I'm looking for a cool NATO band to put on it.

    I think this is 13MG. I was in Beijing for a while so these were fairly available; the square box seems to be just another style of packaging with the same price as the regular rectangular "hard-pack". The soft-packs are pricier. Where in Southern California do you get Chunghwas? They don't even sell it at the duty free shops at the Beijing Capital airport.

    Another modest (in comparison to the other postings) contribution.
    But I like it:

    (I have been wondering if I should go with a different color strap though)

    My wife looked at my watches and said 'Why do they all have dials at the bottom and the sides?' I did the research and learned that I love anything powered by the Lemania 1873. In short - great watch.

    A Chinese/Asian Supermarket called Diho in Artesia - Albertis Avenue
    Chunghwa's are imported to the US, the importer is Papio in Omaha - 1-888-688-5915

    They are available at the Shanghai Airport - at around $8/pack which is too expensive

    that faded pepsi bezel is incredible. a friend is trying to sell me his newish GMT ceramic- the black bezel etc looks pretty cool in theory but the whole thing is just too chunky and shiny for me to have any emotional reaction to it. these older ones just have so much soul to them.
    love the speedy on brown leather too, im going to have to copy that.
    how many watches do you own, just out of interest???
