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.

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:

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!

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.
Got one for my Glycine. Fantastic straps.

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.
