    Wonder if this is a good place to ask this: I'm looking for a watch that I can dress up or down, depending on what strap I wear. However, I'm trying to decide between gold, silver, or something else. I'm usually more of a silver, white gold, guy... but the ring I wear is gold and I'm worried that wearing different colours would look poor. Anyone have a thought on this?

    Thank you. Great example of Omega attempting to move up in quality. Nice details. Tried the silver dial but it didn't click with me.

    Great AP

    - one of the most underrated watches..

    Agreed. My wife took control of mine and has worn it most days for the past four years. It is heading in for a service very soon.

    Ah, it's a university ring. It's kind of beyond reprehensible not to wear it, at least according to all graduates from the university. 99.5% of graduates get it (last years class was 100%).

    Sounds like we attended very different universities. I didn't attend either of my university convocations or bother picking up my diplomas haha [​IMG] Ok sorry...back on topic with the stunning watches!

    nato straps makes watches look so cheap, like a 10 year old wearing a timex, what is the appeal of these straps other than the insurance incase a lug breaks?

    Congrats, the black dial is lovely. [​IMG]

    Just got a new strap from AP Bands for my RO chrono: it's a limited-run vintage brown croc with hints of olive and charcoal.

    That is an amazing looking band but to me, the AP RO seems to call out more for a bracelet than a strap. Will you be switching back and forth?

    A couple of discontinued Rollies from different periods. [​IMG]
    Lovely 16570 [​IMG] I've got my eye on one myself (P-series). Does anybody know if all P-series comes with the solid end link bracelet (78790)?
