Who said it was a Rolex? Not me. I do not need a Rolex as I like very much this watch.I'm afraid I must give this a thumbs down. The watch is a stainless diver style-- basically in the style of the Rolex Submariner, but not a real Rolex. Submariners and other high-grade diving-style watches use a link piece to fill the crescent-shaped space between the metal band and the watch. They also ALWAYS match the band color to the watch color. So you're violating three rules of watch styling, and not doing it artfully.
IMHO, to gain minimal acceptability you could use:
A perforated rubber strap (not the Casio accordion plastic style)
A Breitling style stitched waterproof leather strap,
A nylon strap that matches the width between the lugs (you'd need a respectable buckle, not one of those stamped steel abominations)
(best of all) a silver stainless strap with proper link pieces, preferably marked Seiko so it is clearly matched to the watch.
The final problem is that stainless dive watches with stainless bands have become ubiquitous, and can be found for $20 or $30 in any grocery store. They no longer have the rugged cachet they did in the Fifties, when Ian Fleming put a utility-grade Rolex on 007's wrist because it was so unusual with a suit, and so notably military influenced.
Are you reading my messages?You asked, bro. Now you want to argue with the answers you get?
Apparently 70+% of your audience does NOT like what they see...
Next time don't ask...
You cannot hold an opinion if you cannot back it up with logical reasoning, thus I would say Ernest is right. Even though I too dislike the strap.Ernest:
You said "That 70% do not like my strap is not a problem as I like the strap."
> Â Super. Â You're happy. Â That's all that matters. Â But your apparent indifference is at odds with (1) the fact that this thread exists at all and (2) your aggressive reaction to negative votes.
You said: Â "The only problem is I do not UNDERSTAND your arguments and found them totaly senseless Â (rules NOT to break, what Rolex do...) and I explained you why."
> Â It's all subjective. Â It's like arguing with the guy who says he thinks you picked a bad color for your car. Â The man didn't like your strap. Â Nor do I for that matter. Â Why did you get a strap that mimics a cheap black ano'd bracelet? Â Or maybe your photo doesn't do it justice. Â Maybe it looks spectacular in real life. Â What difference does it make who likes it or not? Â Don't take it so personally.
So I hope you could express you opinion with more sense.
> Â Â You ask if the man if he likes your strap. Â The man does not like your strap, and he says so. Â You attack the man. Â Let it go.
