Turned out great for a first time DIY. Picked up some scrap burgundy chromexcel from a leathercrafter and used that to make it.

    I like the red-brown of the strap with the red accents of the watch.

          Great work. Mind if I PM you with a couple questions about the project? I have a few questions, but don't want to hijack the thread.

            Sure. You can also check out my other thread where I was looking for scrap chromexcel. I posted updates about he project in it. It should be fairly close to the top of the list. I cross-posted this photo in it last night.

            I see you're from Portland, ME. Nice to see another [relatively] local on the boards!

              [MENTION=3886]drocpsu[/MENTION] That looks terrific!

              Since this thread has been around, I'm beginning to realize that I don't wear any of my other watches...

                Hahah. Me too! I just wear this one every day. Great looking watch!

                  I don't participate in this thread, only because the watch I wear daily is a cheapo TSS Sparklestar that I picked up on Amazon because I wanted to try a chrono (and it had to be on the dressier side for work). I've fallen in love with it, unexpectedly, but it doesn't seem right to put it up with more reputable brands...

                  That being said, if I had my grandfather's Seamaster (as I remember you saying once), it wouldn't leave my wrist until it was time to be passed onto the next generation. Enjoy in good health! :-)

                    Superbly happy with this one.

                    Just sent a request to Longines for more information on this piece.

                          No clue on more info on it, but the size fits your wrist rather nicely for a dressy(-ish) watch.

                            Thank you [MENTION=14773]Token[/MENTION]!

                            I got it for a song too! I always wanted a vintage Omega in my collection... well... that slot was filled with a Longiness. Who would've thought?

                                Christopher Ward makes a 38mm version of their dive watches. That may be my next watch purchase.

                                I've started paying more attention to the length (lug to lug measurement) of the watched that I'm looking to buy. I had a Victorinox Dive Master that was about 43mm in width, but the lug-to-lug distance was about 50mm which was too big for my 6.75" wrists. I currently own Seiko and Citizen dive watches that are about 46mm in length and they sit much more comfortably on my wrist.
