Thread: What things (which don't justify a thread of their own) have you got in the mail?

  1. #1

    What things (which don't justify a thread of their own) have you got in the mail?

    (or have just received!)

    I've just received these 5 luvverly straps from Cheapest Nato Straps.
    Orange perlon for my club
    Camo Nato for my SKX013
    Leather Nato for my Alpinist
    2x perlons for my Explorer and Archimede

    Those are really nice straps, Olly. Wear them in good health. I have some incoming NATOs (RAF style) from the NATO Strap Co. I almost ordered two perlon straps from Cheapest Nato Straps, but ordered these others instead. I also just received two new leather straps to welcome my Oris home...someday soon, I hope. So, thanks very much for sharing. It is definitely worth a thread.

    My cat, who went missing for 8 1/2 months, got herself arrested by local authorities and returned to me. Only cost about $200 plus a visit to the vet. Sorry, but there's no apparent watch connection.
    As it now stands:

    Wow, dbakiva! Glad to hear your cat is now home, safe and sound.

    True, no watch connection, but it beats the hell out of my straps

    Thanks, Olly. The leather straps for the ORIS are not NATOs. I cannot find NATOs at 14 mm, but would love to have NATOs for the Oris if I could find them.

    You could use one of the straps as a cat collar to tie this thread together.......
