    Yes, This is the nappa leather, very flexible; very nice. I just wish I could get this in a longer strap - I have to buckle mine on the second-to-last hole - (waiting for deployment buckle).

    Thank you, Have a Great Day!

    Look what just arrived in today! My first tropic. This one has the proper, single thick keeper with matching texture. Now I want to get a better buckle.

    Hear, hear. I find that on stressful days (like I'm having lately, dammit), taking 15 seconds to gaze at the lovely watch on my wrist (be it MK II, Steinhart, O&W, Tissot) takes me to a little oasis.

    Ok, so I have been loving the tropic strap. Fit wonderfully and is so comfy. Would not have expected that. Barely there type of strap.
    I thought it was funny to be wearing today of all days. Spent the morning clearing the snow off the ice so the family could skate.

    Man! Such a beautiful homage. I almost wish I never knew about it because I can't seem to find one like Kingston.

    No other homage I have seen has as awesome of a gilt dial as Kingston AND come in appropriate size and thickness! And the delicate, vintage look and feel... I can't quiet describe it verbally. But Steinhart and Raven do not have "it" for me... The perfect ratio of the bezel and the dial, "appropriate" amount of detail and reflection... In terms of look, I frankly prefer Kingston to the modern Rolex submariner.
