I think you summed it up for all of us perfectly
Anyone have any recommendations for a strap for a Omega Connie 'pie pan'?
Mine is basically identical to this one (not my photo) and I'm looking for an alternative to black gator/croc:
PS - gdl, I ended up with a Bond-style black/grey/orange NATO for my Exp 1.
I can almost feel your across the globe right now. Better than the Jubilee bracelet still though IMO.
Thanks for clarifying. I haven't been following JLC as closely as I used to, and the photo was a bit small to see the differences. But the info regarding the rational for using a red R at the 8 marker is very cool!
Again my fault for not following JLC as closely as I should recently, but your post clarified why I've seen differnet hands & stitching posted in photos on the net. So thank you. I was in Canada in the fall and tried on a Reverso 1931 and I greatly prefer the hands, dial and stitching on the world wide model over the US version (although I'd gladly accept either if my Wife wanted to buy one for me). Thanks again for your your informative post.
Nothing wrong with that - Rolex sport watches on bond and nato straps are fine. You need other straps though - you'll get tired of that setup quickly IMO
^ Looks naked without the espresso.
been gone for a bit. some great watches posted in the last week. really nice stuff guys.
nice Omega apropos! Looks great!
Interesting variations on the JLC Reverso US edition... I like the face but something about the stitching on the strap seems a little odd....hard to tell w/ just that one pic but love the watch!
Really really nice.
+1; just not the same without that triple espresso.
btw, this is really weird that my PAM + espresso picture is being reblogged and tumblred around.
Just found out that my Explorer II with the 3186 movement is worth $1.5k more now than when I bought it. I don't have any intentions of ever selling it but it's nice to know that it's sought after!
Well, apart from starting this nice thread, it is a cool shot.
+1. i have tried on a few JLCs like that, but sadly they look like ladies watches on my wrist.
