    Strap changing record?

    Well, this morning I had my SEAL on a Delaurian SBW. I decided to change it to the Delaurian tan lizard for a dinner engagement that my wife and I were attending. When I got home I decided to swap that out for an olive green zulu.

    Am I insane or does anyone else swap out straps several times a day?

    Re: Strap changing record?

    I sometimes have the urge to change bracelets/straps but I've noticed a lot of guys are mentioning damage and scratches around the lugs when they put the watch up for sale, which obviously devalues the watch. I don't think I would be too happy if I screwed one up so I'll just try to pick something I really like on the watch and then maybe do an occasional change. I'm sure I'll be in the minority in that opinion, however. Seems most of the boys here love to change them out frequently.

    Regards

    Bob

    My wife says "maybe you need more watches". Is she great or what?

    Mark,

    I noticed you had a couple of DOXA's in the inventory, How do you like them? I have never seen them in person and I am not to sure what to think of them, I guess they have been around for awhile, just curious, thanks.

    James,
    Check out the Doxa Forum on WUS...It is very active and full of Doxaholics. I Have a 600T Professional and I like it very much. I alkso had a Caribbean, but sold it to make room for another watch. IMO, they are a good watch.

    I love my Doxas very durable/accurate and very comfortable for a large sized watch (45mm). I'm still waiting for a titanium model or a PVD coated T-graph.

    Yes check out the Doxa forum as well...They are also great watches, but I may be a biased....Both have amazing customer service....
