In The Meanwhile

Post by mattcantwin » Mon Apr 24, 2017 3:42 pm

The bracelet from my recently arrived Great White is in the safe at Topper's.

It's there for installation of an Omega adjustable clasp, along with the necessary links to attach the clasp to the bracelet.

It'll be there a while; the clasp is on backorder.


Unfortunately, I did not have a single 20mm strap.


Called upon Art and Terry for something to use in the meanwhile.


I really lucked out that Art had an OD canvas set to go.

I chose the Toxic Admiralty from Terry's offerings.

The colors are "similar", but I like the way they work with the white dial.

Might not even go right to the bracelet when it arrives.

Amazing restraint on your part.

Love Art's canvas, but I agree with Ed as that gray NATO looks great on the watch.

To be clear; Art makes great stuff, I'm just a nato whore.

agreed. the OD canvas would look great on a lot of watches, but the gray nato is better here on the GW.

The Toxic Admiralty is a great color; going to get another one in 22mm.

Grey nato works great on a white dial.

Agreed. :cheers:


The Admiralty is not exactly grey; I really like the color, whatever it is.


(Admiralty strap on top).

It would look great on a Rolex Explorer. :whistle:
