We must agree to differ, Ferg. I wore the C3 on the green strap today and just love it! :D
Guess it's worth remembering that the dial on your C3 Chrono is Cream which, on reflection, should go well with the Green strap.

Agreed, a change of strap really does freshen up the look of an old one

Withdrawal symptoms? Not yet. The new straps are providing plenty of interest.
My CW working week was duly completed as described above. I enjoyed wearing all of them and the three that have changed straps wore very well. Going for a wander around town this morning, I shall dig out a summer shirt and some shorts and I am half thinking of wearing the Ascari. 8)

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

:lol: I usually end up buying new straps not long after getting a new watch. My Legend Diver has a Milanese strap that I thought I would change up with a tan leather, didn't like it, then I got a dark brown, didn't get on with it, then found a nice Cordura. Liked it the most but was a bit stiff even after a couple of weeks. Finally am back on the Milanese and loving it. I really should not look at strap sites... :oops:

Nothing unusual there.

Happens to some / most of us all the time.
