Anthony has been trying new straps

Post by Guest on Tue Mar 20, 2012 4:37 pm

Anthony bought a few new straps. Anthony has never changed straps on any of his watches because Anthony doesn't like scratching his preciouses.

Anthony finally got over his fear of blemishes and tried some new straps. Anthony liked the new straps on his Seiko divers but Anthony went back to the originals for authenticity and because Anthony wants to keep the fat spring bars that fit the lug holes....

Anthony is getting pretty good at strap changes so it won't be a problem if Anthony finds better straps that can take the Seiko bars.

Anthony now knows that the Harbor Freight watch tool kit is complete garbage, and will invest in better tools.

Speaking of tools, where has that Archie got to?

Ok Conjurer! Since you challenged me I couldn't resist and went ahead and did this:











and I also put the same Maratac strap in 20mm on my mid-size Pilot:



Notice I hadn't even removed the stickers from the Smith's until tonight....I like the bracelet but these straps are very comfortable and so far I think it matches the watch well.

Nice! How do you like the Smiths otherwise? I didn't care for mine too much.

I have to say, I love it. To be fair, I haven't sized the bracelet yet but my local jeweler here charges me every time I bring a watch in so I went straight to the strap once I got the balls to do it. In other words, I have not experienced the sizing problems or the flopping you described.

It feels good. I do wish he would include a signed crown, that is one of my pet peeves with these micro brands.
Otherwise I am very happy with it and with these straps.

Thanks. It's laughable but this was a big step for me in my journey to WISdom, the changing of straps. Now I have an excuse to buy better tools too!
