That was my goal

I'm glad you like it. The splash of color, pebbly texture, and the stitching definitely dress it down compared to the typical strap you see paired with this reference (as you well know). While I like beautiful croc straps, I also like to dress my formal w...  

Wow - quite a watch

The dial will really contrast nicely with the yellow strap. I like that you're taking a playful approach to such a dressy watch.

I like it

Very Hodinkee

Thank you - I appreciate your candor

My wife thinks some of my tastes in watches and straps border on hideous (in particular the blue salmon strap for my FPJ CS), so I'm used to critical reviews.

I can see that

It looked better in my mind than on my wrist. I'd rate it a B- combination. The 19 mm width makes it difficult to use on any of my other watches.

Superb reference

I absolutely LOVE 3970 in second series

 By: Mike H : October 8th, 2021-20:32
The nice vintage look of the baton markers and leaf hands with a waterproof screwed case back, the best of two worlds for me between the first series snap case back and the more modern hands and markers of later series. And on top of that in R version it ...  

Love it!

That is going to be my next strap, Mike. The green looks *fabulous* with rose gold. Where did you get it?

Indeed it does 😉

You should try…

Like that combo a lot 👌🏻

Well said, as always!

Good choice with the olive green strap !

 By: GLau : October 9th, 2021-09:21
Now you have a unique version of 3970 second series !

True, I certainly haven't seen this combo before

 By: Spartacus : October 12th, 2021-05:15
It's growing on me.

Thank you

 By: Spartacus : October 12th, 2021-05:15
I still pinch myself when I put this little gem on.

Thank you - I certainly will
