    but the superocean... [​IMG]


    I'm not saying that it's a fantastic watch - but I know that it will sell like crazy.

    Another picture of my JLC Grande GMT, this time on a black buffalo with contrasted stitching.

    Someone in this thread mentioned that he was getting a bit tired of croc / alligator straps. I would highly recommend a good quality buffalo as a sportier alternative. It's a fraction of the cost, extremely sturdy, and looks good too.

    I played around with both of them in a meeting with Rolex. Both are very nice (but one can of course have opinions on the green Sub...) and well-built. The Explorer looks good even with the polished numerals, what I would have wished for is larger hands.

    /M


    I agree regarding the hands... are they simply pulled form the 36mm model?

    This is a great combination.

    I'm a sucker for NATO straps.

    Where does one buy a strap like this?

    Thanks! I've only recently discovered them and have enjoyed them on a few of my watches.

    Any suggestions where to get such straps in NY?

    I had this one custom made at Atelier Jean-Rousseau in Paris.

    http://www.jean-rousseau.com/jeanrousseau_us.html

    Their work is of very good quality, and they are a bit easier on the wallet than Atelier du Bracelet Parisien. They don't have the incredible variety of leathers of the ABP, but the selection they have is nice.
