The 20mm tapers to ~18mm and feels good on the wrist. The buckle is a little big but fits the band well.
    Good quality, made in the US, quick release makes for easy changing, I think the price is acceptable given the quality, though I spose I’ll have to wear them for a few months to know for sure.

    No picture, but a watch box for my 14 year old daughter for her growing collection. Only mechanical micro brands, Seiko and two Mickey Swatch collectors' items. No Omega....yet. Yes, we parented well.

    New Erika's MN strap. Very happy with it, and an optional woven German flag for the Sinn. ;)

    I got tired of having to dig through a single compartment Kennedy toolbox for the tool that filtered to the bottom. Picked this up at The Container Store:
    New Cab.jpg Bottom Drawer.jpg Other Drawers.jpg

    The only shortcoming is that the drawers are about one inch high so some things (including most lubricants) don't fit.

    Very funny. Whadda ya make of the sticks under the condoms? Oh, and that blue thing is a vibrator, all you need is to hold a chunk of steel up to it and press the button.

    A new blue Di Modell calfskin strap. £19 plus postage. I love how a strap can transform the character of a timepiece. I picked up this rather ordinary gp watch recently. It was on a black patent faux-croc strap and just looked out of its depth, trying too hard to be a classy dress watch.

    Now with this unpretentious but good quality blue strap the watch is transformed into something much more versatile, but more than anything it says to me “easy Sunday morning” rather than “formal event”.

    image.jpg Collection of straps from Two Vintage Seikos - fundraiser for the koalas. Now to figure out what watch goes with which strap. Even Mrs Zin wants one on her watch !!

    I bought a bunch of these, and need some more. Great for sending watches and parts!

    Well I just got this rare black opal rough from lightning ridge Austrailia. I guess if you think about the "Time" it took roughly 110 million years to form I would consider it nature's watch.
