Well pleasantly surprised at the condition of this watch… The sellers macro photos almost made me think I was getting a beater.

Bracelet is beautiful but off it goes… Don’t like the added weight and a little too shiny for me.

Chunky for sure...thanks for the inspiration guys.

I'd have done the same - really like that on the rubber.

And the best of it it that with that water resistance you can give it a good wash under the cold tap once a week to keep it nice and clean.......

There's no way I'd sell the bracelet. I'd get rid of the blue strap and get the black version.

That's you...and I respect that. How/when I will wear this watch kinda "specific" and I would NEVER want to walk around with a black strap (rubber or not) as casual as I will be dressed when I throw this on. I will never wear that bracelet let someone else appreciate it.

And if I want to wear Black Croc, Blue Croc or Black Calfskin I am covered...I have very much compartmentalized these watches. Now I admit if I had one watch I'd have to get the black rubber as it would cover the most bases.

Justin...coming back at you. I can admit when I was "wwrrrrrrooooooo..." Can't say it like Fonzi couldn't but never sold the bracelet and glad I didn't now...so I guess you were right but you know what they say...

"Even a broken clock tells the right time, twice a day"... :uplaugh: :uplaugh: :uplaugh: :lingsrock:

No worries Mickey, now you just need to pick up a black rubber strap and you’ll be all set. I’m only joking but I’m glad to hear you kept the bracelet. I’ve got the same bracelet on my Colt and it looks fantastic.

I didn't cut the strap and I don't think you really can...and still use it. This one has that bigger tang Breitling buckle.
