    'dress' watch dressed down

    i have to admit in my world of vintage divers -chronos and military watches i really only possess one true 'dress' watch which i love -a 71 seamaster- rescued it and had it brought back to life so to speak - but sadly and frustratingly in my limited social life i don't get to wear it enough - so in a bid to make it more acceptable as a daily wearer i decided to pair it with a bund and it has become completely wearable at most times - maybe you guys might shout at me and you are welcome to do so but i like it and it has given the least worn watch a new lease of life -it slides thru the bund without any need to de strap so is instantly returned to dress mode if required Name:  _DX10025 copy.jpg

    I'm usually not a fan of bund style bands, but this one isn't half bad! Certainly gives it a more casual feel.

    That said, I think that particular Omega on the croc strap would look great with any attire- jeans / t-shirt included.

    If you like that combo, wear it and enjoy it, Sir! The bund strap is not for me, however. If I wanted to dress such a watch down I would probably do so by putting it on a less traditional leather strap than that brown one. Maybe a different grain than the standard gator or croc, something like shark, lizard, or ostrich, and maybe a different colour than the usual dark brown or black so often paired with dress watches. But again, if you're happy with the bund, I'm happy you're happy!

    I agree with this. A great strap makes that watch shine with any attire. I think it can be a daily wearer on that strap as it is, particularly since the strap is brown.

    Personally, I think that watch looks borderline ridiculous on that bund. I do, however, love the look of the watch and would happily wear it if I owned it!

    No, no no!!

    The Seamaster looks great on the original strap but the bund is just wrong!

    IMO, of course :)

    Looks great on the croc, might look OK on an all leather Bund, but the combo- leather AND croc..........reminds me of something, can't put my finger on it, wait! I know now it's like........
