    Received this Waltham pocket-watch as a gift.

    EDIT Turns out this watch isn't necessarily pr0n worthy. I still think it is a beautiful watch... but It it isn't nearly as old, rare, or valuable as I initially thought. Due to outsourcing the hunter cases, the serial numbers ceased matching on the case and movements, resulting in confusion over the actual vintage. As a result, I've discovered It was "only" made in 1918...

    Unlike other members' experiences, the strap fits nicely on my wrist, and I do not have to fight to get it through the case and the springbars.

    ^ looks really bulky and I don't like the combination of brown + black.

    The watch itself looks gigantic on your wrist. The Lugs appear to be extending past your wrist...

    No. The Oyster case was designed to be worn on a strap, granted not the one the member showed, but a strap nonetheless.
