Changed the mesh on my Davosa onto a leather strap I got with another watch. (I've got other plans for the mesh).
The more I see that Davosa, the more I like it :thumbup:

What about a rally style strap? And we know what you did with the mesh :wink:

Photos taken yesterday morning before new battery being fitted; hence time is out.

I have that very piece sitting in my bedside cabinet. It was my engagement present from my then fiancé, bought for me as an alternative to a ring. They have a lovely alarm tone if I remember correctly. I stopped wearing mine about twenty years ago although I did get the clasp renewed and battery changed about six years ago. Waste of time really as each time I put it on, I was reminded of just how expensive that engagement turned out to be!

Mine was a present from my wife for looking after her following a bunion operation; we've now been married 27 years (sorry your engagement didn't work out).

The current bracelet is not correct for the watch and I don't truly like wearing it.

I want to get a correct one or something different, but the lugs / fitting is really awkward.

Trying to angle it to show off the blued hands - my previous photos never really captured the blue

No marriage but still a shed load of solicitors fees, signed over the house, car, cat, etc, etc. I did leave with my stereo, chefs knives and wok. Oh and the lovely seiko of course!
