    Ugh, I just impulse-purchased a Vostok Amphibia, so now I need to go day trade to offset the expense.

    Breed chronograph on a ralleye strap. Not bad for less than $100

    The red stripe pairs nicely with the soda colors!

    I like that your sleeve also has a nato strap.

    Thanks! It's a 19mm band, so it's a bit narrow, but the metal bracelet basically doubles the bulk and weight of the leather strap, so it's definitely different. I'm wearing it today (not over the sleeve of my shirt).

    The Reverso on quill ostrich. I typically wear this one as a casual watch so it lives most of the time on this strap...



    However, it dresses up nicely with a swap to black leather.

    This week I swapped the leather band off my 20 year old Citizen tank watch (the watch is 20 years old, not the band, that's maybe 2 years old?), I decided to try a metal bracelet band for the first time on this watch (sorry, the protective plastic sheathing is still on the band in the photo below). I kinda like it for pure function, but my wife says it looks less dressy. I can't disagree with her, she's right, buuut...I typically only wear this watch with a suit, so maybe the metal band makes it a bit more casual and I'll move it a bit into the day-to-day rotation. Ultimately, I love this watch, it has a lot of sentimental value and it's got a good classic vibe. I can always swap it out for a leather band again later.

That said, I do miss wearing a nice watch daily. I don't think I am a 'smart' watch kinda guy.
    Despite my change in schedule during this pandemic, I'm still a compulsive swapper... usually two per day (day/eve) and often more on the weekends. It's a disorder...

    Trying to do the one watch per week rotation to give everybody a fair amount of wrist time...
