    Went to a watch store yesterday, saw the beaum et mercier capeland flyback chrono and I was not impressed. Too much going on.

    but the IWC Portuguese chrono and Portuguese auto 7 day :inlove:

    the strap on the 7 day felt too small/thin imo, anyone else feel the same way?

    I like the 7 day more but its an extra 4k and bigger. Whatever I decide to get will be worn daily until I add another watch.

    Thoughts?

    I'm partial to the chrono, but the 7 day is cool!

    I love my Port auto, if you don't mind the thickness. I would go with the auto, I think it's worth the extra $$$.

    I like the looks and size of the chrono, but I'd rather have the movement thats found in the 7 day.

    I guess I tend to wear the big pilot when I want a bigger watch as I think the 7-day is a little big for a pure dress watch, but I do like the grey one a lot.

    Grey 7 day is very very sweet. Somehow, the color of the dial seems to take away from the size of the watch. It makes the white one look jumbo in comparison.

    Got a question for all you Bond-nato strap nuts: I picked up this one from Broadarrow:

    [​IMG]

    and I thought it was black and grey. when I got it in I saw it looks more like navy/grey/red. So, I emailed the guy and asked why the Bond strap didn't look more like the black/grey jobbies that I always see pictures of. Like this:

    [​IMG]

    And he says that the first strap is more representative of the movie and the second style is being phased out. I swear I've never seen a bond pic with a blue/red/navy color like that. Thoughts?

    He is right that the actual strap used in the movie has red. Also, if we're being really nitpicky, it was a one piece strap, 2-4mm too narrow, with no keepers.

    Recently "Bond strap" has become a colloquialism for any NATO/Zulu with those stripes.

    hes correct. bond never wore the black/grey. It looks like it, but the ones you received are correct. navy, oliveish grey, and thin red stripes.

    Yes, although the face changes colour depending on the light and often looks black. But it's not the 50th anniversary sub which has a black face and green bezel.


    :) thanks!


    The bead bracelet is from Style Forum's HomerJ -- he custom makes them (great quality and price). The woven leather strap is from "Leather Braiding by John" -- also custom made and great quality.
