    "look at that, I still wear the same strap size as high school" said the invicta in denial.

      This watch looks great on pretty much every NATO strap I try it on. It May be another keeper.

          Probably the nicest NATO I own. Hasn't frayed at all, softened up well without getting too permanently creased, long enough to tuck back through both keepers. It dries quickly as well.
          I just picked up a few from Crown and Buckle (always had good experience with them so that's my go to for NATOs) but I may have to check out what cincy carries.

          New Steinhart... changed my order from the black ceramic to green aluminum after seeing a few YT videos of the ceramic. Happy with my choice.
          Nice. I like the pop of green. It's about time Steinhart started making some more modest sized watches.

The size was one of the major issues keeping me from purchasing... and now I see that there is a white MoP dial variant. Guess I’ll add that to the “someone please buy me this” list.


          More on topic. Casual day of jeans and an OCBD so I went with my Alpinist. Too lazy to correct the date right now.

          What strap is that?

            If you don’t take a picture wearing the Edifice, did you really even wear it?

              Thanks. Only problem is that I'm pretty sure it's never been serviced. I need to find someone I can trust to work on a watch (this one is a basic ETA 2824) in the Houston area. It's so hard to figure out who can actually work on mechanical watches vs 'they are great at changing batteries' from all the Yelp reviews.

                [MENTION=3421]Vicious49[/MENTION] it's an Eulit Perlon. Specifically its the "Palma" version which has a thicker weave. Technically this is the brown one but the color looks much more like a charcoal.

                  Is it a softer more cloth like feel or hard? I bought a Perlon from C&B but it feels hard and rough, rougher than my NATOs. I've never owned a perlon before so maybe this is normal but they always looked like they should feel much softer.

                    You and me both today.


                    Hah! Taking this photo made me realize that my date is wrong.

                      The Little Watch Shop off of Shepard. I entrusted them with my Dad’s vintage Hamilton and a vintage Omega. They did a great job on both.

                        Thanks for the tip. That's the place I had called earlier this week to see if they could do the job. I hadn't had a chance to go out there yet. I will definitely try them out now.

                          [MENTION=3421]Vicious49[/MENTION] Being a synthetic fiber they definitely don’t feel cloth-like as their appearance might lead you to believe. That being said there are a whole bunch of perlon straps out there that are stiff, scratchy and uncomfortable. Eulit seems to be one of the few brands that delivers affordable ones that are actually good. No rough edges and not scratchy at all. Mine has softened up over time and is very comfortable.

                            Posting pictures on this forum is complicated but I will try using Tapatak, pardon on advance if it shows as a reply to someone. I got my steinhart driver on a day of the dead nato during happy hour

                              I have a couple of the eulit panama and agree with that.
