    Thanks Warren and stitches. I dont like my 312 as its just not comfortable to wear, something you dont quickly appreciate at the AD, though it looks very nice no doubt.
    In fact i went home at lunch today to get this watch off and back into the safe, it is 17 months old and I think worn maybe 10 days total. Strap is an aftermarket version of the OEM JV strap.

    Regards.

    :( what did you swap it for?

    how many mm is it, and do you have a smaller size wrist?

    also, could someone give me the low down on the big deal between pre vendome straps/buckles and the current ones?

    I put this in the safe where it usually sleeps and put a white SS Daytona on for the rest of the day....much, much more comfortable. I am 6'1, 225 with 7.25-7.5" wrists, so not a little guy. :embar:
    My 43mm DSSD is as tall as the 44mm 312 but it wears a lot smaller. The back of the 312 just doesn't agree with my wrist at all. Sorry, i cant educate on the Pre-V etc as I dont know it well. I just asked Simona to send me 6 different straps and she made some nice ones and sent them over.

    HRoi, Its strap #3.


    Per Peter: The straps are made by HERMES trained craftsman and the leather lining is the same type used by CF of Paris.

    Beautiful Speedmaster. Zac - what appeals to you about a watch apart from colour? Just about every Rolex model is available with a black dial.

    My ears must have been burning because I decided to return and see what yall are up to! Sorry for the absence--had a bunch of stuff going on.

    Anyway, heres the scoop: I think I'm bored of my MUT Moon and am thinking of trading it. I think the wrist presence of the speedy pro did it for me. Maybe I'll swap the MUT for a GO PML 2012 somehow?
