Stuck this on a Nato strap as I wasn’t convinced that the highly polish beads of rice bracelet was for me.

I much prefer it on this and may need to look for strap options now. Being 19mm lug width isn’t ideal. NATOs can easily squeeze in the gap but most of my other 20mm straps in the box wouldn’t go.

Very nice! I like the look on the nato, but maybe a tropic or rubber strap would go well with the style?

The Barton elite silicone in black, lined with yellow that might look good in this. I know it comes in 19mm because I have it for my Speedmaster racing. It’s at least a low cost option to try.

Really like the size of this Omega Speedmaster 3513.50.00, 39mm is a sweet spot for me.

Is that a smartwatch?! I had to zoom in and look closely.
Agreed, I did the same thing. Obviously a tremendous amount of thought has gone into a near inexhaustible number of dials and different looks. And here’s the kicker… It’s all good and useful information! Especially as we age, more and more of us are keeping track of things like daily steps. Once you get started, it’s easy to have a quick look, and if I’m behind on my daily average, park on the far side of the parking lot while running errands to get caught up. Very cool. :thumbup:

The beads of rice bracelet was one of the features I liked most! That style of bracelet doesn’t suit every watch, but I thought it looked great on this one.

The NATO looks good too, as would any number of rubber straps, I imagine.

I think I need to experiment with this one. The BoR does suit the watch, but it’s the highly polished elements I’m not sure about. If it was brushed I’m sure I wouldn’t be thinking twice about it,

I’ve ordered a Barton rubber strap as well so I’ll see how that looks when it arrives.

Well, I couldn't wait any longer for a sale on these!!..I had to give in!!..DHL dropped off a dark green GL0405 a little earlier this afternoon...folks, I am so impressed!!..unlike the 42mm Subs, these 39mm versions feature 120 click bezels(instead of 60), drilled lugs(46mm L2L length) & 300m of water resistance(vs. 200 in the 42mm versions)...features a screw down crown, a solid case back, & a date at the 6 o'clock marker, making it relatively unobtrusive...the bracelet is also of pretty nice quality, given it's price point(currently $568.00 @ Gnomon)..quite the looker!!..guess I'll have to save up for the blue dial version next(the GL0400) to scratch that BB58 Blue itch!!..here's some pics..

My latest microbrand: the Fjord in magma/black from Feynman Timekeepers as arrived! Very nice watch and it wears more compactly than I anticipated. They’ve done a quality job with this new model.

I thought I'd try ZULU straps on my Bremont S500 Bamford today.

Full stealth look on an Elliot Brown ZULU with gunmetal fittings.

. . . . .but I've switched already to a softer looking grey Zuludiver; for now.
