Incoming Seamaster On Strap

Post by mattcantwin » Fri May 10, 2019 8:37 am

I just had a birthday and figure I'm old enough to give a two-tone Seamaster a go.

Ordered from Rob at Topper's.

From what I've seen in videos and reviews it should work for me.


Picture shown taken from this review of the watch:

I don’t care for gold on a watch and also don’t generally like the skeleton hands - BUT in this case those two elements work together and make me love the look. Congrats!

Not a fan of gold but this one looks like it would be an exception for me. Enjoy!

The new SMP’s really are quite stunning and a relative value compared to a lot of other comparable watches right now.

Here's a shot I came across when I was deciding to go ahead or not; real hair, too.

That’s exactly the version I’d buy. Congratulations.

They are really upscaling these to fill the sub void.....I like them more and more each time I see them.

I've been wearing an RG watch every day since my EL2 came back, and it's really not as loud as you might expect. Nobody notices, including me. Love the color combo of that TT Seamaster!

That’s only if sold to an Italian. Due to age, Matt got the complimentary white mesh loafers and matching belt. I believe it’s similar to the gift set that Shorty got when he moved to Florida.

I've recently come around to two tone (must be age). I like that a lot. Congrats Matt

Too soon to place an order, but that didn't stop me from checking out Stewart's straps.


Does the Deep Brown Oiled (non-rally) look like a good option to the OEM rubber?
