    More mail from Jakarta

    Whatmeworry's I got mail thread had me "worried"* and wondering when my lyonk-strap would show up.
    Happy to report that I found it in our mailbox this evening so today is a double Good Friday.

    The strap required some work / mods: punch or drill a hole and make the little incision for the buckle pin. In all my excitement -and rush to get this done while there still was some light to get pictures- I omitted taking a photograph of the strap as received / pre mods. And viewing my photos I also realized / noticed that I had not wiped the smudges and fingerprints off the watch after installing the strap. Again, blame the excitement and rush.

    Enough said already, on to the pictures:

    My only strap with just one hole - the ultimate custom look. Very cool in my book.
    I plan on fitting an original Omega buckle in the near future.

    Fit at the bottom lug

    The complete picture - much better than the previous strap. This strap is a keeper.

    All I can say: thank you lyonk

    For what it's worth (from a bracelet guy ) - That looks the business
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.
