    Re: Why you chose Breitling

    Maybe some day a Submariner will end up on my wrist but I still am more fascinated by a Breitling because its a watch brand that makes a watch you can take off your wrist and admire it from several different angles. All the details that go into one are simply beautiful.

    To me, all the beauty of most Rolex's are inside the case. On the outside they seem to be rather plain but the recognition factor can be high.

    The strap today exhibits the most gorgeous patina I have seen on any strap IMO. Jim (jazzmaster") loves the patina on the camel croc almost as much as I do. He has indicated he has been trying all sorts of techniques on his to hopefully expedite the process.

    Good info! I did not realize that was the croc! I am in love with the way leather patina - it can compare to a non-stainless steel blade like CPM-M4 - you can use apple cider vinegar to force that patina - no clue what to do on leather. I can tell you that the sweat from you hands patinas the leather of my Trayvax wallet very quickly!

    Thank you again for the info - would not mind seeing more of that beauty.

    Indeed, you are correct, Master. I believe that I am making great strides in the dark arts of camel croc patina...

    Here's a shot from early on -- featuring the original "yellow" hue...
