    You may get a very similar one from here: https://www.cousinsuk.com/category/lizard - especially the "Handmade" selection looks close; here is one of mine (burgundy), quite close to that color/shine/padding if you ask me:

    LOL...well...OK...but what I did do at the store was quite fun and legal [as well as somewhat annoying to the manager since it was VD and the store was somewhat busy]. That bag [it's a certified Delta Air Lines pilot man bag] on the roof of my P71 holds my wallet as well as some watch tools [Omega branded spring bar tool and Omega branded loupe from my Speedy Gonzales presentation box set] that I utilized to change the Hamilton buckle that I was picking up. I wanted to make sure the new Hamilton buckle fit on the new Hamilton strap of my late father-in-law's Hamilton auto...so I did the install right there at the store. It was fun...I was going to get pics but the manager seemed like he wanted me gone...since I was taking up counter space with all my stuff.

    I really got the hots for this one...I love everything about it. I wonder if it's worth sacrificing a vintage piece for one? :thumbsdown:

    Now that's just lovely... Probably the one Rolex that could get me to convert to the dark side. Luckily, it is way too expensive for that ever being an option :D

    I'm fairly confident that the MD-88's nickname of "Mad Dog" is derived from MD 20 20...no joke..."eighty-eight"..."twenty twenty". Also, I've heard the MD-11 aircraft called the "Mighty Dog" as well as the B-717 (MD-95) aircraft called the "Mini Dog". Weird thing is...I've never heard an MD-80 aircraft called a "Mad Dog"...only "Super 80".
