Hi all, I just received a small window display back from Meranom and it doesn't fit. It's a hair too big. Has anyone else bought one recently with the same problem? I'll be sending them an email about it shortly.
Does anyone have photos of a 420 case they brushed? I am considering brushing the face (not much surface area, I know) of the case, leaving the sides polished. Thinking that will tone it down just right.

Posted this in another thread but thought I would put it here for anyone considering strap options:
I have settled on Isofranes as the rubber / summer strap of choice; they really do breathe better than all the other rubber options and dont stay wet. Perlons are good too but the few I have had started fraying at the seals. Borealis makes a very affordable isofrane clone, in an excellent non-lint attracting compound, for $25 shipped. Black, Blue, and Orange are available. I wish they had other colors too. Obris Morgan has a more extensive color catalogue, but their strap is 10mm longer and these straps are already pretty long as it is. IMO the Obris strap and other long type variants are unsuitable for anyone with wrists under 7.5-8''. You can see so many wrist shots with the keepers and the flap right up against the watch at 12. Not such a clean look. My wrists are 7.25-7.5 and the Borealis fits much better:

That bezel looks really good on this particular model. It is not a Meranom, is it? Where is it from if I can ask?
No worries. That's right, the crown gets in the way. The bezel for 090 is straight-sided whereas most of the others have a lip that lets them clear the crown. I find the chrome/brass bezels usually end up in my parts drawer anyways. Lots of nice stainless alternatives available :)
