    Very cool. I always think of the Railmaster or Aqua Terra as a slightly more formal than sport watches but you've found good ways to dress it down.

    I used to dislike black dials with brown straps, but damn, that looks good... I might buy a brown strap for one of my Breitlings...

    The brown-strap, black-dial combination works well when the dial is matte. I think that a gloss black dial needs a bracelet or black strap.

    What's wrong with Oris' lugs?

    A lot of Oris watches have weird proprietary lugs.
