Strapped

Post by koimaster » February 27th 2020, 5:02pm

So I was missing my Bulova Lunar Pilot watch the other day so I ordered another one. It came on a Bulova Nato and I ordered a black distressed strap for it. I put them side by side and did the cheap guy mockup with the canvas strap. I really like it on the Nato at this point and may end up having to sell off the brand new strap.

Buzz Aldrin wouldn't have been found dead in a ditch wearing that raggedy strap!!
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

There are watches that could go well with a distressed canvas band, but this one really does look better on ordinary black nylon. My suggestion for an alternative would be a "rally" leather (or rubber) strap.

Yup, that sumbitch would look cool on a Dimodell Rallye, viz:

I like all of these. The sailcloth straps have been creepin' up on me; they're all right and more substantial than some might think.

This is because you're retired, and don't care about the date any more. All you need to know is when the Golden Corral opens!

Yup, black. For the look.

After looking at the strap Carl put on his, I ordered the same and am waiting for shipping confirmation.

And now that the sailcloth strap is in, a mock up to the Oceanographer. Not sure about it but I much prefer a dive type watch to have a strap of some sort.
