    forgive the intrusion in the watch porn thread

    is there a thread up on the boards about watch troubleshooting?


    I have a seiko spirit that has decided to start running fast - not familiar w/ this phenom.

    How fast are we talking about? While I really love my blue spark, but it's not exactly my most accurate watch.

    gorgeous 5512 above. as it happens im wearing my favourite nato today

    [​IMG]


    oh gosh these so called NATO straps are so cheapy looking, SF'er should know better than to wear a watch strap just because some lame actor in a some spy movie decided to wear one on-screen. If he wore a watch strap made out of dirty toilet paper you guys would be wearing it too. I am so glad only like 0.00000001% of the population of watch wearers actually wear a NATO strap, glad you guys are the minority, so you are not lowering the standards of watch wearers.

    Though I myself prefer a steel bracelet (or even a nice leather one), there's nothing wrong with a good Nato strap.

    gtfo - that Omega on the NATO looks top notch. A sparkling new watch would look silly on a nylon or canvas strap, but a vintage sports watch looks great. Current style trends aside, a cloth strap is certainly more comfortable, especially in the summer. I have a 2003 sub and a 2005 baume mercier capeland 2-tone, both of which stay put on their metal bands. I have an old, beat up quartz seamaster that will soon find a home on a cloth strap just so my wrist won't be all pete schwetty.
