View attachment 69599 View attachment 69600 finally found a strap i like!!!
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XT8YBHL
this material is great, i also swapped out the clasp with a brushed titanium finish one.

the kevlar one i ordered from singapore was junk.
How are you finding that strap after a few months @panda? I've been looking for a canvas strap for a while, still haven't found a good one though (some were just bad quality, others started fraying at the holes after a while)

Just sent Rolex GMT II to Rolliworks for service and bracelet tightening. Pulled out this Accutron that I haven't worn for years, probably the last time I had the Rolex serviced.

It's the best!! Still holding strong, no fraying or cracks. It's the only strap i will use.

Garmin Forerunner 935. I love it. So easy to read in direct bright sunlight, long battery life and one of a kind watch face that I developed myself from code.

I dont wear this very often. I wear it pretty much the month of December Only It’s a bit much. I got it tuned up at the factory and immediately scratched the face on my motorcycle. My local jewelry shop said they can buff it out, but I haven’t taken it back. I just wear it now. It’s bombproof for sure. I wore it deer hunting and never saw a deer. I blame the bling.

Here is my usual watch. It’s crazy old now. I bet it’s 25 years old. Minty fresh from the Rolex Swiss tune-up. I got fleeced. The tuned cost almost as much as the watch did back in the day. They wanted to put a new bracelet on, but I stopped them. I’ll do it if it breaks. I don’t think I like the new Tudor watch offerings.

I feel Omega has gone pretty much the same - tried to get my 1960s seamaster checked and tuned up but they were going to send it off to Switzerland to assess + do all the changes they wanted as either an "all or nothing" type situation.
Daily driver : Casio G Shock -> Big easily read screen for easy heat rate/ resp rate taking + timer helps to keep an eye on jobs I need to go back to (would recommend for anyone that needs something waterproof/washable)
Weekends: 1960s Omega seamaster -> small and subtle enough that only very few people notice but still damn beautiful

was never a fan of G shocks, until I bought one to time my cold showers (don’t ask lol). I gotta admit they are great for all things outdoor, work etc. and if they break they don’t break the bank...

Definitely a big "if" this thing just soaks up abuse. Big thumbs up for the olive green.

Vintage Omega watches are best repaired/ cleaned by independents. Omega Factory will ruin a vintage watch by replacing any parts they feel are not up to snuff. (say goodbye to any tritium lume that is remotely cracked, etc.)
