I recently took off my 20 year old Zodiac Marine Life and replaced it with a new Hamilton Khaki green dial. I really like the Hamilton and do not want to scar it up, so I picked up a very cool early Timex Marlin. It is a bit smaller and shouldn't get in the way while doing outside chores like cutting and splitting wood. I believe the Marlin has the original bracelet but I could be wrong. I'm thinking about trying a nice brown leather NATO strap? Would you swap it out?
