    Another one to hide from the Missus.
    I'm trying to choose nicer straps at the moment, I looking at brown Crocodile for both.

    No need to hide it, she will confuse the two, and think you only have the 1 ;)

    I have stupidly taught her a thing or two about watches, but it is fine, any mention of the watches I own I will just play the shoes and handbags card. Problem solved ;-)

    Very nice! I must say I do prefer a nice thin brown lizard for my vintage gold, elephant straps being much harder to come by these days in The Netherlands at least:)

    I find Hirsch make pretty nice ones which won't break the bank at around 40 Euros, otherwise I try to pick them up at watch fairs and sometimes Ebay.

    The ones below are 1. vintage Omega, 2. is Hirsch and 3. is Rios 1931, also about 40 Euros and of good quality

    The brown does look great with the gold, thank you for the photo, lovely watches too.
    I like both straps you have there in equal measure, Time to get looking. I will report back when I have them.
    All the best Mick
