    Ah, the joy of new straps!

    Felt like sprucing up a couple of great incoming vintage watches that arrived with some pretty awful bands.

    So that's a 1959 Omega Ranchero, which came on an uncomfortable cheap leather strap, and now has a soft Strapsco quick-change offering..

    An Omega Speedmaster Mk 4.5, which arrived on a bad leather strap, and now has been blessed with a NOS original Omega bracelet I was able to source...

    And a good ol' Seiko Panda, which arrived on some godawful 1970s multi-buckle strap. A NOS Omega bracelet is on order, but that strap HAD to go, so the NATO will suffice in the interim.

    All in all, not a bad way to spend an hour on a Saturday enjoying the hobby!

    Thanks! They sure so! It's amazing what a difference a strap can make.
