Thanks :D
This Longines has a 19mm lug width which proves challenging finding straps so in the end went with an 18mm Vintage Military Canvas NATO Watch Strap in Green by georgesstraps (on eBay)

Thanks for the link. I hadn't noticed the leather hole piece. I might still give it a whirl on the Partitio.

I have the hand-wound version (viewtopic.php?f=8&t=52441) which I wore yesterday evening

Thanks Nigel. I had been tossing up getting one of these and it was in fact your review of your hand wound model that helped make the decision. I managed to track down a black dialled 42mm; for some reason everyone is selling the 42mm model in blue - nearly every black dial I found was the 45mm hand cranked model.

It’s still on my wrist today, enjoying it.

New arrival! Had one of these before but now back again in the collection. Hard to find in new or mint condition these days so jumped on this from a seller in the UK. Bracelet is awesome. Some more pictures here: http://horology.world/gallery/album/53- ... rna-matic/

One of the best designs in wristwatches linked to historic exploration from a brand with a rich history. It makes a Rolex Explorer look rather boring.. In my honest opinion, of course... :thumbup:

The speedie does work so well with different straps Neil. Personally due to the size I also used to find it more comfortable on straps and natos than the bracelet where I found it could just overhang a bit. Certainly no such worries with my nicely proportioned GP!

That Speedmaster is possibly the most easy-to-read-under-adverse-circumstances watch ever. I love it.

Yep! :D

Put it down to trying to select a photo from the phone, with sun on the screen and less than 20/20 vision. :lol:

I went back into the thread shortly after posting and thought oh sh1t. :shock:

Shortly after taking the pic I had an almost “Brenda from Bristol” conversation with a lady who came into the newsagents. :lol:

I agree. The standard Moonwatch is probably the most legible of any of its numerous variants.

Certainly agreed about the bracelet. I wear mine a lot more now I have packed the bracelet away. Already picked it out as one of four to take with me on next trip away. :)

Nice watch....will you be doing a full review of it as you did with the Moonwatch? or maybe a comparison review?
