It's really amazing how much a new pair of shoes can do for a watch's image.
In this case, my Edifice EQWM1000. I have loved the look and the features of this Atomic Solar watch ever since I got it about a year and half ago, but it has never really gotten too much wrist time. I realized a little while ago it was because of the cheezy bracelet that it came with.
The bracelet made me feel as though the watch was trying too hard to be dressy and upscale, making me feel like a "poser" when I wore it.
Finally, couldn't take it anymore and decided on a Hadley Roma water resistant Carbon Fiber. The water resistant band is a perfect match to the watch's 100m WR rating, and the Carbon fiber matches nicely to the subtle carbon fiber pattern on the subdial me thinks
The only thing that would've made it perfect is if Hadley Roma had the same model strap with red stitching. I'm EXTREMELY happy otherwise. The other slight annoyance has more to do with the shape of the watch's case at the lugs. With the new HR Carbon Fiber on it now, the old folded end links are gone, exposing the sides of the case at the lugs. Can't pinpoint it, but the shape of the case seems a bit off at the lugs. Minor thing really.
Enjoy the pics...this thing is going into heavy rotation starting tomorrow
