    Brown w racing holes? Raptor? bund? carbon fiber? Nato? Black leather is nice, but brown is surprisingly awesome.

    I think that zenith would look great on a brown strap bhall41

    Can't kill da rooster - Lovely broad arrow ! - Re the strap question, one of the combinations I find works well with strap is match strap to dial colour and stitch to indices colour (or off-white) instead of silver. Maybe something with a finer edge stitching in this case too.

    Cheers. Yep the wait was pretty bad. The watch was (at my request) shipped by USPS but was held up and ended up being returned to the seller. That took close to a month! The watch was ultimately shipped via Fedex. See caseback photo below - not the world;s best photo sorry. I will post some more shots when I get a new strap.




    Agreed. I will check out HLow's straps. Thanks for the heads up.

    Cylon, based on past posts/pics I was thinking this as well.


    Never really thought of it this way. Think I will try a couple out next week.

    Some Panerai love up in here! Love it.

    Borrowed a friend's PO for a few days. It's been a couple of years since I had one of these. I must say, the watch is money, and compares very favorably to my 16600 (not that I'd trade the 16600 for it or anything though).

    Dukes - great comparison shot - the OP sure is value for money and I've seen M8's change out the strap (leather & Rubber) and some even add a 'crystal' case back - great daily beater - the 16600 Legend! :)
