Re: Nivada Grenchen Chrono Aviator Sea Diver

Think a vintage Omega Speedmaster 105.003 40 mm no crown guard so not much difference at 38mm. One thing about a 38-40 mm watch with a bezel ring it makes it look bigger than it is so mite surprise you with it on the wrist. No one complains about the size a 105.003 speedy much so 2 mm not much diffe...

Some on forums call ISO type rubber straps ugly beauty in the eye of the beholder and you sell a version of that. But I like ISO type bands.

Re: Cool Bracelet for your vintage Omega Speedmaster

Guess I am not the only one who thought they would be a cool option. Not many bracelets were you can adjust it with out removing any links just dealing with spring bars putting it on and off. Removing links are some times a pain in the ass glad you don’t have to deal with them with this bracelet. Th...
