I took the liberty of calling Gunther and telling him to not send any chocolate! ;)

Just as well - it's going to be 115 here today. Don't think those fedex trucks have air conditioned cargo sections.

No. 6 falling in!

Unfortunately now considering falling back out again... :(

Love the watch and want to wear it as my everyday choice.... but it seems I have a bone sticking out on wrist and if I wear the LE 2 for more than a day... it rubs and causes a bit of discomfort. Doesn't look like I can wear it everyday as planned.

Had this problem with the helium valve on the Planet Ocean as well, which is why I don't have one of them now. (I wear my watch on the right wrist btw).

Really not sure what to do now.

:cry: :cry: :cry:

Problem is I don't want to as I like it too much. Nothing else in that price bracket appeals to me just now.

Going to give it a bit longer and then decide. :cry:

Hi Carsten

Welcome to the exclusive club, great pictures, but I do not think you will get any Rum out of a Lagavulin bottle. :wink:

The strap is a Hirsch "Grand Duke"

And the phrase in the signature is a local saying from the region I grew up. Personally I prefer the Lagavulin. :)

Received my special order strap from vintagerstraps.com for my LE2. Very nice strap – I highly recommend Micah.

That's a very nice strap Tom! I haven't ordered mine yet as I picked up a reddish-brown Breitling OEM leather strap when I was in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. It's on my to-do list though. Did you have to punch any extra holes in it? What do you use for that anyway?

No hole punching, they have different sizes you can order. But I do have a hole punch with differnet sizes - frankly it sucks. My AD just sent me a much better single size punch. Got it yesterday.

Hmmm, maybe I should look into one of those. I find all my steinhart straps are a little long; an extra hole would work wonders. Of course I could just send them all to you for a hole punch :wink:
