    Thanks! Good to take time to decide - it'll be worth the wait.

    I like the low key look of it, particularly with this informal strap, but it can be dressed up with other straps easily. Should wear it more.

    Always running late? I’ve never been to a meeting. Any idea what they gang up and watch?

    Make it a special one! 55 seems like eons ago for me.

    This being a gang and all, they prefer Time Bandits and A Clockwork Orange. Also big fans of Watchmen.

    I know. Personally don't care for them at all.

    BTW, I like your Seamaster. Classic, straightforward, elegant.

    I love that watch. I'd put it on an exotic strap. Definitely wear it more.

    Thanks for the strap input, Prince and Hednic. Any particular straps/strap makers you recommend? I do have a more formal looking light brown leather strap (came with the watch) but I don’t like the shade that much.

    I don't know enough about straps to recommend a specific maker, but I happen to think that a glossy alligator strap looks especially handsome when paired with a yellow gold dress watch. Something like the strap in the attached image might fit the bill. You may also consider one in black if you tend to wear black shoes/belts often.

    Ohh I do like that. Will investigate options. Right now, it’s more of a “jeans and boots” watch/strap, and luckily that’s mainly what I wear these days...but it would be nice to dress it up better.

    I agree a glossy alligator in chocolate would look nice as well as a brown anteater or hippo.
