    Late to the party.

    My first automatic (present from my wife). Temporary black strap until I find something nicer. Any feedback on Hirsch?

    Minor problem with getting this watch. I've now ordered another Seiko, a couple of NOS manual wind watches and am very tempted by a s/h Titoni... Is this more addictive than shoes? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Very nice, enjoy your gift! Hirsch makes some really nice bands (sheep, shrunk calf), Kaufmann is good too, especially their croc. I, personally, would wear a cordovan band with this watch, though.

    We stock Hirsch at work. IMO, great bands, whatever the price. They have some fantastic cheaper straps, as well as their higher end straps. Long lasting, and well made.

    Here is a Vestal watch I bought a few years ago. I am currently trying to sell this watch since I never wear it. At the time I loved it but it turns out its not my style. [​IMG]

    I finally decided to get a Seiko diver
    I'm not a big fan of diver's but that's quite restrained. Not bad looking.

    We stock Hirsch at work. IMO, great bands, whatever the price. They have some fantastic cheaper straps, as well as their higher end straps. Long lasting, and well made.

    Cheers!

    Yes another Seiko. Not strictly a Seiko 5 but it's a 7s26 movement for the Asian market:

    I'll leave this one on the brushed strap.

    Hey guys,

    Minding my own business lurking and noticed someone else has a Ball watch - and another with a question about lume. My one and only decent watch happens to be a Ball EMII Diver...

    [​IMG]

    ...the lume is indeed very good on these.

    Been wearing this non-stop since I got it. The movement isn't anything to write home about but I really, really love the look of it. It looks equally in place when I wear jeans and a t-shirt or a suit. [​IMG]
