    First time posting on this thread. Here's my daily beater that I've had for about 10 years. Originally came on a black leather strap that I replaced last year with an aftermarket Hadley Roma stainless steel bracelet:

    Why don't they make Brietlings like this anymore? The newer ones are all so hideous but this has some style. JMO, but I think a black leather strap would compliment the watch better than the steel bracelet.

    The original black leather strap was falling apart and so I replaced it with a black carbon that looked pretty good too. I wanted to try a bracelet and have been too lazy to replace. I'll go home and take some pics with the original and the carbon too. This is pretty small compared to today's watches. Only about 37mm in diameter.

    Have Rolex dropped the no-date sub from their line-up? I haven't been able to find it on their site for some time, but maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place...

    I love those straps! What is that material? Is that a type of nylon or is it embossed leather? Any way, I love the clean edges - very sharp!

    Really like your watch. The current range of Breiltings is hideous IMO

    A lot of people here seems to like Grand Seikos so it should be great news that Seiko has announced that Grand Seiko will be released world wide.
