    Changed a few straps today

    Bored at the office and the Glycine strap really annoyed me.


    changed to this one -





    Barton Canvas Quick Release on the Revue since I seldom wear it but it will make a decent watch for the summer along with the wenger my daughter purchased for me and the Zodiac Deep Reef I purchased from Foghorn about 7 years ago.
    Carty Mens Oil Wax Calfskin Handmade strap for the NOA
    MAIKES Watch Band, : Oil Waxed Leather vintage look for the invicta



    1946-2006

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a habitual strap changer. I have such a disease myself. And I'm surprised how attracted I am to that canvas strap.

    I got a Barton canvas from Amazon recently for my Smiths. Quality seems good, it's a nice, lightweight, unlined canvas strap.

    A watch can look completely different with a strap change. Besides, I didn't buy all these NATOs to leave 'em in a drawer.
    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    Exactly. I probably have 70 straps of varying colors, widths and styles.
