Looks fantastic!

Great minds think alike, I bought a couple of these for the mbii and the alt1-p. For the price, you could not go wrong!

Stunning! But in honesty I think that watch would look amazing with pretty much any strap you could throw at it.

I'm going to buy one myself a Solo for my 50th(10 years to get saving :lol:).

Very nice, but I still think soft brown suede leather looks best on this one. Something like this:

Sorry JFC but you're photograph is intriguing me.

Is that really your garden and why the pole that seems to have be a red cross on it?

It doesn't look like a graveyard.

Nice Oris by the way.

It's a split garden separated by a bit of garden and the pole is a flag pole with a St. George's cross on it. And, how do you know about the graveyard under the garden?... :silent:

Thanks JFC.

In that case it's a pretty spectacular garden. My wife, an avid gardener, would love that.

Careful what you dig up though!

Thanks for the comments on the Solo strap everyone. It wears well too as it is a lot thinner than the Bremont straps, which is important for the chunky Bremont case. The Bremont straps are a bit too chunky to wear under a cuff...for me at least.

John - thanks for the heads-up on the suede strap. I will look into that.

I replaced it with the Bremont deployant clasp and put it in my box of spares. I haven't got a pvd watch so I guess it'll never get used, so if anyone wants it just PM me...
