    Love it. Terrific warm patina. It speaks to me... and it's saying "I want a brown croc strap without contrasting stitching." ;)

    Thanks MMMD. The only strap I had available was this black Hirsch alligator which was much better than the crumby one watch arrived with. I agree something brown is the way to go to highlight the patina...really like this Hirsch alligator, maybe one in brown

    Thanks Alex. They are yellow but in certain light look rosy/pink::love::...a little tarnished maybe. Love the patina on the dial!

    Temporary really...trust me I'll do the right thing here...even the crappy brown strap with the white stitching looked better but I couldn't leave that on, even just for a wrist shot!;)

    Not bad, not bad at all, the 2852 really is IMO the nicest case in the Constellation line
