    I have that watch and wear it with a navy gator band that matches the blued hands. Looks pretty good IMO. Lacquered black looks good as well. Didnt care for the OEM band.

    I agree, I'm not a fan of the OEM napa leather band. May I ask where you purchased your navy gator band?

    check the sales forum at watchzone. seller fredaswatchstraps has a good assortment.

    The whole not being able to import exotic skins is a PIA. I was in a paris a few months back and wanted to have a few custom straps made at ABP but didn't see the store until the end of my trip and couldnt have them mailed to the states. bummer

    My first "real" watch... Stowa Marine Automatic. Stowa's customer service was top notch! I think the Marine Auto makes for a great dress watch. My next purchase most likely will be a Chronograph... perhaps the Archimede Pilot Chrono? I don't think my small wrist can support a watch greater than 42mm.

    Any recommendations on a Gator/Croc grained leather band?

    Omega identifies it as the "Tresor". It's from 1949 and has the 265 calibre movement.
