What is everyone wearing on hump day?

Jul 29, 2020,09:07 AM

Chose the Apollo 8 day due to the release of the Alinghi yesterday. While I love the black and red colorway of the Alinghi, I see no connection to a Speedmaster, especially a DSOTM model. I think it would have been more appropriate with a Planet Ocean Chronograph or Seamaster Chronograph but guess that is why I don't make the big bucks at Omega πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ. In any case, I much prefer the Apollo 8 and it's original idea with the surface of the moon laser ablated on the dial and movement 😁

Yeah, I wanted to order green NATO Isofrane in 24

To fit 23mm, they only had black available!!! And they only have 20mm available in Tropic NATO!!! 23mm sucks for custom straps!!

The Isofrane is NOT a NATO style strap Ted. See below.

They look like this. They are UBER comfortable and the best rubber dive straps IMHO. Alot better than most any rubber strap from an OEM provider unless it uses an Isofrane strap as well. They come in black, brown, blue, green, etc...You will need a 24mm I...

I have NO idea what site this is but go to the official Isofrane site...

or try Watch Obsession in the UK. I think there are a few others also in the US that specialize with Isofrane rubber straps. I believe a reputable reseller on WUS also has a few in stock. I usually get them through the official channels as they are made i...

Yes, I think that site I showed you was thought Isofran..

Let me check again. I’ll show you the Barton straps, maybe cheap though. A lot of people like Barton straps, and they have quick release!

Quick release won't work for your FF as it uses her screw bars πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

No idea about the quality of the Barton straps but I am sure of the quality of Isofrane straps as I have used them for a number of years πŸ‘

It turned out to be a millimeter too wide, but . . .

. . . G O allowed me to wear while I was moderating their forum. You'll notice it has only one hole punched . . . the strap was tailored to fit my wrist and attached with that deployant. So a buckle probably won't work, Nicolas. Art
