    Beautiful photo of a beautiful classy watch! I like the tone and texture of your strap. May I ask you what brand and type strap is in the photo? I ordered mine from Higuchi this week and cannot wait to receive it!

    Here's my brand new SARB017, freshly arrived from Seiya today. I also picked up the Seiko deployant.

    Sorry for the late reply. It's a Hirsch Buffalo strap.

    New Alpinist arrived today

    Here is my new Alpinist which arrived today.....

    ...put onto Hirsch Lucca. I think that the thicker upper part of the strap (near the watch), which thins at the buckle looks great and compliments the chunky look of the watch. I also think the slightly lighter and weathered look leather suits it perfectly.

    For anyone thinking it's too small, it isn't. I think large watches can very easily look brash, ostentatious and, well, tacky, so in my opinion this is the perfect size.

    Possibly, but when I was reading up about these watches, it was a concern I came across numerous times.

    Like it a lot on the Lucca, I picked a Siena, a little more dressy, same style.
