wrist shot.. Steinhart Ocean One I re-appropriated from my brother.
First up is my Frederique Constant. The Big Date / Dual Time from 2008
Second in my rotation is the Stowa Marine Automatic from 2011
Not shown are the Omega Seamaster Pro 2531.80 and a Tag Heuer Aquaracer
I used to like the 'idea' of it, but after seeing some examples IRL, IMO cordovan NATOs are a poor combination.
Cordovan as-is is simply too thick and inflexible to function well as a NATO, and often ends up... well, looking like your example. I also am uncomfortable with the often silly markups any accessory marked 'cordovan' attracts - e.g. 3x cordovan straps costs the same as a pair of cordovan shoes.
Yes I tend to agree with you. I purchased a cordovan NATO for my Sub as an experiment but found it too thick. I prefer the bracelet or a nylon NATO.
My new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra. Love this watch.

Thanks - good to know something that recent still looks good.
Warren G If it's really you- .. G FUNK!
Correct, as long as you can stomach the wait, I think working with Dirk directly is the way to go
The straps are from Dornbluth. There is actually a second picture that has each of the straps without the contrasting stitching. I ended up going with the strap second from the left without the contrast stitching, the white stitching didnt seem to jive with the blue dial IMO.
1967 breitling top time.
the watch is worth more than the car?
Lovin that Stowa.
Not really, otherwise you have problem with that?
