Looking good Joe!

I swore I wasn’t buying any kind of homage or micro again but this ticks so many boxes for me I may have to reconsider.

Size - yes
NATO comparable - yes
No Mercedes hands - yes
i was thinking the same, and i'll add fully indexed bezel.
Completely agree guys, I wasnt sure if I wanted a homage, but its such a nice size. Plus, its a $100k out of production Rolex. Guess I can let it slide.

I was also able to confirm that I NEED a Sub to wear on natos.
seth just listed a nice 2-liner

I love that! Is it a one piece strap?
I just realized that was a positive comment from JP. Fuck it, I’m buying a lotto ticket. Strange days.

Thanks guys. It’s a one piece Perlon strap, made by Eulit. I believe Eulit is the original, but having tried many brands and sellers, I can say that Eulit is the highest quality. This one is called the “Kristall” model, but I plan to try the slightly thicker Panama. There is an even thicker still version called Palma, but I didn’t care for it as much.

A decent source is Holbens Fine Watch Bands.

With the ability to insert the pin anywhere along the strap, the Perlon always has a perfect fit.

That's a great looking setup, Hop. I just ordered a 20mm black panama from Holbens. Been going through them for several years. Excellent CS to boot.
