Bulova MIL-SHIPS-W-2181

Jan 14, 2022,16:24 PM

I actually “accidentally” acquired this on December 19th. I was at a local mall finishing my Christmas shopping when I was surprised to see this in the display case:

This was the standard edition. I left and went to grab an espresso and debated whether I would take this or the LE. Since I was also acquiring my first Indie (Moser) and my first German (Hanhart), I decided to go with the standard edition and took her home with me:

I immediately started looking for a custom 16mm strap, which I discovered would be very difficult!

Well, I found one on EBay. Although I was hesitant, I decided to take the chance. It arrived Monday when I was out of town at a client engagement. Put it on this morning;

Thanks! I meant to mention custom “Tropic” strap in my post!

But, inadvertently left Tropic out. Once again, I like your idea of the Bund strap, which looks great!

Congratulation on your new Bulova

In my opinion you found a nice looking strap for it. Nice combo, enjoy.

Thanks, Jari!

I actually considered getting one, but the LE was out of stock already. So I hesitate and now wonder whether that is such a big deal?

I’m not sure what you mean?

It should be fine from , at least in my mind.

Ah! Sorry Nico! Now, I understand . . .

 By: Mach : January 15th, 2022-17:13
I was able to add it to my cart with no problem. It states “it stock.” So, hopefully, our friend grigo can still get the LE!

😂🤣😂 It’s probably much better than mine!

I can’t even pronounce my own name, Mark, with my Boston accent (hence, “Mach”)!

HA! I feel relieved! :)))))

That's crappy!

It's 2022 for crying out loud! They can't move inventory from one country to another??? Sorry to hear that . . .

+1, alas.

The story surrounding the invention of the Post-it note . . .

 By: Dr No : January 17th, 2022-10:54
. . . is fairly well known: the weak adhesive was discovered accidentally by a 3M scientist who was trying to create a strong one. What's less well known is that the scientist was never really fairly compensated for his discovery. He was a 3M employee, so...
