A Golden Eye finds new shoes...

Post by Thunder1 » October 16th 2019, 3:27pm

Well, the Glycine Gl0173(Golden Eye) that I've recently rec'd has found a happy home...my only real issue w/ it stemmed from the fact that it came w/ a black nylon NATO strap...I just don't like either the look or the feel of these straps..here's a pic of what it looked like when I rec'd it a few days ago...

During my lunch break today, I replaced that strap w/ a 22mm medium brown colored leather Hamilton strap that I had stored in a dresser drawer..I'm pretty pleased to report that this replacement strap rather nicely compliments the brown bezel and gold colored indices...and that the white stitching does the same for the white lumed hour markers..and at $379.00 out the door(+ the cost of the replacement strap), I think these guys make for very fine bargains in our world of watches..

Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...

Dammit Chuck!
I guess I'll check out Strapcode.
You know, maybe it isn't a Hammy watch band..maybe it's a Hirsch?..anyways, I didn't really notice it until I put it on, but the sides of the strap are black!..so, looking at it(the watch) on it's side(s), the black case is a nice match for this strap!!..who would have thunk??.. :mrgreen:

Handsome. MY G-e (preowned) came on a NATO as well. I've been looking for a replacement. Something like this could certainly fit the bill.
Pics or it didn't happen, sir..
