    It's like getting a new watch!

    I just got a very nice stainless steel wrist band from an old Omega (long broken) of my dad's put on my Mondaine. The look is quite different (and I think it's more snazzy, probably because I wanted to buy it with a metal wrist band initially, but the model with a sapphire face only came with black or red leather wrist bands). The feel is also better, it's much more finely adjustable than a leather band (and most metal ones for that matter) even if it's a braided design. It's also slightly flexible sideways so it fits my wrist snugly but not tightly, and I barely feel it on my wrist.

    It's amazing what spending $5.60 to get the band switched does. My dad said he bought the band for SFr. 40.- a couple decades ago, even that would be a good deal.

    I don't have a working computer right now and I'm posting from my phone, but I'll see what I can do about getting some pictures posted.

    It's telling how much of a WIS I am that I get excited over this and feel the need to share it with people who can appreciate my enthusiasm.

    Cool. Always neat to see how differant straps change the look and feel of a watch.
