    It's on a navy blue shell cordovan strap. This one to be exact - https://www.watchobsession.co.uk/col...p-in-dark-blue

    The only thing I would change is I would have held on to that JLC Deep Sea Chronograph. I'll probably pick that back up at some point to replace the Speedy. The Speedy is a nice watch but it's a bit too generic for me,

It's sort of like owning a Ferrari but putting 50 miles a year on it. My lifestyle at the moment doesn't require a dress watch. That may be different 10 years from now and then I'll regret selling it. But at the moment it's a lot of money tied up in something just to keep it on my dresser.
      Damn. You made the right choice, and it's a tough one to do. I have quite a few pieces that I should have sold a long time ago for the same reason. Hope you didn't take too much of a hit (in terms of recouping your investment) on reselling it.

      Separately, I have also been eyeing a heavy hitting dress watch to go into my rotation (probably a JLC), and although I have a white collar job where I do need to dress up from time to time, I still struggle with the idea of spending a ton of cash on a watch that would be too dressy for me 80-90% of the time (as my current rotation of sports watches cover me from casual up through semi-formal). So I see your point.

      • Yeah, it was tough to get rid of the JLC and if I was richer I would have hung on to it. But it was the smarter financial decision.

        Here’s a pic of the rest of my current watches at the moment.
