Shout out to Maria and Borealis. I did put my request in the order comments section and she responded at nearly 10 PM her time (exactly what Brice said). I ordered it before seeing his post.

Man, I love good customer service. Makes me feel good about this purchase.

Got her ordered. I had a change of mind on the date. Looking forward to this one. Flawless transaction with Borealis on the pre-order.
The watch strap makers who don't have backlog are the ones I wouldn't waste my money on. There is a reason why they aren't busy.

Good point.

It's a small world. Funny, we emailed each other before Christmas regarding your Toxic Rubber straps. Impressive CS as well and thanks again.

Digging around a bit, it appears the strap I linked (Instagram) is a Wayfarer from diaboliqstraps.

I prefer the cathedral hands. They make the watch much more interesting and original looking.

My original Christmas gift was the Armida 42 matte blue. Sort of blows my mind how you don't have it in stock at Christmas.

This seems to be a much nicer watch...

Has anybody seen this watch (blue) on blue rubber? Also, I'm a little confused on the reddish/orange on the text/second hand. Some pics look red, some look not so red. More orange, with some pics, especially on the second hand. Probably just the lighting. I'm assuming it's just a pure red.

Trying to figure what kind of strap I want. Blue rubber takes care of a lot of things, but a leather/rally strap would sure look sporty.

It's red not orange

That'd be a lot of blue I think. I'll see if I have a blue rubber strap to try for u
