    For the last couple of weeks it's been this example of the original run of Magrette Dual Time (159/500). Comfy, quite striking and accurate enough not to need adjusting so far. All good :cool: :D IMG20210611184758.jpg

    That's what I wore. His graduation gift was a Seiko SNA411P1 pilot chronograph. (He's going to aviation school.)

    Where's that tan NATO from? Looks like the ones IWC has been using, with the leather / rubber pinhole strip.

    Well in order to answer your question I will need to do some post farming and show another watch in this thread which will partly include an IWC but no this NATO is from the Rado captain Cook. This particular model came with leather, mesh and a NATO. I was going to put it on myself put my watch maker always gives me discounts so I figured I’d have him install it and pay him. Well didn’t work he installed and said no charge. Not sure I’m diggin the way he put in on, I might change it. I did pic up my IWC dial and image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg movement as he had no case around to fit it.

    Huh interesting - the Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical (and maybe other models) come with a similarly constructed NATO. So the Swatch Group has some nice NATO strap supplier cruising around out there somewhere... really would love to know who it is so we can custom-order some of these things!

    I was looking online. I just picked up this Rado a few weeks ago in a package deal I went on Rados website to check out different natos if I wanted a different color or style seems they run around 130 bucks. What do you think these cost to make? A couple bucks. They can charge whatever they like of course no one is forced to buy anything I just find it kind of funny.

    That is the most interesting watch I’ve seen in a long while, would you be so kind to post the model number.

    I'm well acquainted with this ritual, although I don't think I hold mine over my head. And being a white guy, I know better than to try to dance during the winding... or anything else.
    The lack of the option to wind the old Seiko autos with the stem is my least favorite feature. But they are generally terrific movements.

    Oh come on that is one of the greatest dance moves of all time. It went viral and people were doing it on tik toc and what not so it must be good. By the way I do an excellent mick jagger on stage dancing impersonation. I think I got it down better than him now. So don’t think just because your white you can’t bust out the moves. What If Fred Astaire had such thoughts. Oh I got the moves no doubt.
