    Very nice! I love the versatility of being able to put almost any kind of strap or bracelet on it based purely on personal preference and it still looks good. It's like a crisp black suit that you can accent with any shirt and tie combination.

    I'm reaaaaaaally falling in love with this mil spec nato strap. It's comfortable, classy, and sporty at the same time.

    There's not much to say -- the 007 is a superb watch. It's a homerun all the way around. I'm actually wearing my J4 model now. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

    The Mil Spec nato is by far my favorite strap. It's so light and comfortable and it looks good!

    What's interesting is that this bracelet is actually more comfortable than my leather one. Normally, I don't like metal bracelets because they don't conform well to my wrists and pinch. That's not the case with this one. There are so many links making it so flexible that it molds right around my wrist.

    Some extra cash coming my way soon. This might be in my future. What size NATO does it take?

    I was severely tempted by the 007 last year after my newly purchased Seiko BFK's crown thread failed,,,, I only had it a week!! My aim for a replacement was for a watch that had crown that would not press into the back of my hand,,,,,,,,,,,, I use my hands a lot and found that even after a short time the crown was noticeably uncomfortable,,sticking into my wrist In the end I plumped for a Citizen with the crown on the left side.

    Shark-mesh bracelets are very flexible and inherently well ventilated so they don't stick to your wrist like other metal bracelets do. My present strap was hand-made for me by David Appleman out of a Swiss army ammo pouch and it suits me well....

    Reliability of automatic watches is often a moot point,, for best results you have to find the regime that works best for you,,,,, my watch doesn't come off my wrist except when washing,,,, For the first six months it gained about 1 minute a month and it has gradually settled down to lose about 20 seconds a month. I guess I'll get it regulated at some time,, but it's not a problem,,,,, I prefer a watch with soul rather than one with high accuracy and a battery.

    Hey guys, my Super Oyster II Bracelet is on sale on BST. I bought it solely for dress occasions (like the holidays) but I hardly dress up since the holidays are over so it's sitting in my drawer. Come check it out!

    Thanks for the information, motivation and inspiration. Here's my Seiko Orange Monster on a Strapcode 22mm Super Engineer II. I hand-filed the SEII end links to fit the 20mm lugs of the OM. Tip: Remove the end links from the bracelet before filing. OM + SEII = Winner.[​IMG]
