    Looks like it. Looks too big to be the 365.

    Good points. Apparently he makes the some items for Cleverley including their shoe cleaning cases and document wallets. Obviously this could all be fabricated but it seems to add up.

    It certainly smells like Russia calf - not sure how easy that would be to replicate...


    I hesitate to ask, but what does Russian calf smell like?

    Wow that is a great looking watch. I've been saving up for a Rolex but after seeing your pic I started looking at the Ball line-up and am really loving the look of the Engineer Hydrocarbon Spacemaster and Magnate GMT.

    I've haven't heard much about the reliability and quality of Ball but I'm intrigued. Maybe I won't have to save up as much now [​IMG]


    They make great watches at a great price. I think they are the most highly underrated watch I have ever had or seen. I have a Rolex GMT Master II and many other watches but I feel the build quality and looks are the best out there, next to Panerai. You can't go wrong with buying a Ball or two or even three for the price of a rolex.

    Really, *really* oily. You either love or hate it.

    Thanks. It sounds like the maker and the Russia deer are the real deal.

    I haven't gotten around to experimenting with Nato straps myself, but I think it can be a good look.

    Here are some examples from a quick Googling:

    Do you have any particular Flieger in mind?
