First real post other than pictures in the WRUW threads. Hi everyone, my name is Brett and I like watches.
I have been looking for a good travel watch for a long time. I spend 3-4 months a year traveling 1-4 weeks per trip. I am often going through airport security up to five times and often in five different time zones in a 24 hour period.
I wanted a GMT watch and I wanted it to be easy to remove and put back on when running from one end of Narita airport to the other and going through security with only 15 minutes between flights. (did it in ten minutes last week) Other than this, I had no idea what I was looking for until I came across the SUN015. In all honesty, of the watches that I liked the look of it was not even close to being considered but when I saw a Youtube video showing the quickset hour feature, I was sold. There are not many that I came across at this price point that have this feature.
So I now have a brand new one in the mail which should deliver tomorrow. I chose the bracelet because I did not like the optional leather strap that comes on them. I do not really like the bracelet either but if I had to choose one it was the bracelet and I actually found it at a better price.
Now all I need to make this perfect before my upcoming trip is to find the perfect leather strap for it. It is 21mm but a 22mm should work fine. I have not owned or tried one yet but from pictures I really like the thick/chunky "vintage" style leather straps. I am thinking black with red or white minimal stitching or a dark brown but I can be persuaded into something different if I could see images. I would also like a leather that I do not have to worry about it getting wet. I am also thinking a deployment clasp would be great but I am not sure how one would work or look on this size of strap.
I have searched high and low in WUS and google for images of this watch on other straps but so far have had no luck. Please help me out. Some images of what I think I want are below. Thanks in advance!
PS I am hoping to see a lot of images of this watch in this thread which is why I posted it her instead of in the strap and bracelet sub-forum but I may cross post it there as well to get more responses if it does not violate any rules.
