    I have a number of watches, but I've been wearing this one a lot recently.

    Despite its size, it fits well under a shirt cuff (Hackett tailored fit in this example)

    ^^^The strap in the top pic is rather unique, I've never seen one like it. It complements the watch well.

    Congrats on the PO pickup. Great watch.


    Let's spice things up ...

    Nice! I have the exact same Panerai. Where'd you get the leather straps? Are they OEM?

    I think it is a Hirsch/Panerai Riva

    I doubt this will stand the comparisons with you guys rocking APs, rolexes and whatnot, but anyways... here is my humble offering:

    O&W M-4 on James Bond-nato (on top of some optimization calculus, lol)

    Nice. I used to have one of O&W's hand-wound MP models and really liked it.

    Awesome watch. Anyone know where I can buy a leather band like the one above?

    I am interested to see views on the colour of the watch face.

    Black or white/neutral.

    Whilst I'm curious as to preferences, I'm particularly interested in how a black or white/neutral face is considered to match or clash with clothes (shirt - jacket etc) colours and or tones.

    Is there any received wisdom or tradition on the matter?

    I prefer white or ivory/champagne dials. I've seen a few navy that I like but I am generally not a fan of black.

    Black for sports and white for dress.

    My new Spring/Summer casual watch! An automatic Seiko with a JCrew band.

    (Sorry for the terrible iPhone quality picture)

    [​IMG]

    Love it already, bought another color strap as well; I have a feeling I'll be buying a lot of these to swap out.
