Like other non-screw down crowns - wind with crown pushed in. Othewise all you will do is change the date or time. Great watch, Isn't it?

Got an awesome strap from Kazimon today... the colors are just perfect! :bow:
I'm not too keen on the buckle, though but it's just fitted with a springbar, so no problem there!

Finally got around to post some pics, wanted to get some wrist shots.
First, on my 7.0 in. wrist.... (oh yeah, protective plastic was still on crystal on these)

Image

Second, side view...

Image

Third, bracelet sized to fit. Like the clean look of clasps closed...

Image

Hope it doesn't look extremely large on me. What do you guys think?
Thanks for looking. Thinking of getting a brown croc strap for my white B2, would also fit on this Mark II.
Terry

That's a good size Terry, looks great on your wrist :thumbsup:

Definitely keen to see it on a brown strap. In the hunt for a black strap with red stitching at the moment!

Thanks Tim, I think I can get used to the thickness and weight - I hope so, really don't want to let it go. Seems like a black strap with red stitching is becoming popular, pics of them so far look good! Good Luck.

Sure you'll get used to the size. I was not expecting something this substantial - love it though. I like a watch that can be used as a weapon in a pinch.

And my bracelet woes seem to have abated as it is settling in and now not too tight - juuuust right.

Terry,

I think it looks great on your wrist!

Sharky,

Great news to hear that you can deal with something a bit better than the temper you were throwing b/c you didnt get any chocolate with the order! :nana:
