    Confused Watchadoo on MarinaMilitare?

    I bought two watchadoos in the past year or so; 20 and 22 mm and they do fit well on every watch I own.
    However -- i ordered a Marina Militare Radiomir-like watch from a private seller and I wonder if a 24 mm version of "lumpy" fits on this one?
    It´s my first MM watch so every idea is valuable.

    Already tried? Possible?




    If not; I bought 2 calf skin / buffalo leather straps (24 and 26 mm) to compensate :)

    Thanks,

    Joseph

    At best, I think it would look funny. At worst, it may not fit at all, because of the "collar" in the middle where the two halves of the wire lugs meet.

    But then I've never seen it done. Why not get it, and if it looks funny on your Radiomir-style case, you'll just have to get a MM with the Luminor-style case and put it on that. I know that looks awesome (Sorry I forgot who it was that has it. Was it crew?)

    "More watches" is always a valid solution.

    That´s what I thought in the first place
    The thing is -- I actually bought 3 (THREE) of them by pure coincidence; I won 2 bids after I already purchased the first one.. So now I have California dial and gold plated version on their way too.

    I just wanted to know if it has already been done but now when I think - it sure would look funny.
    Well, I think I´m gonna have to reduce them to one and then buy luminor case version :)

    yeah it was crew that put one his Luminor. looks awesome if you ask me. I think he has pictures of it posted here and in the affordables forum.

    As to what it would look on a radiomir I am not sure but I don't think it would look right. I think the only bracelet that would look decent would be a mesh but even that would be a long shot.

    Good look with the 3 watches though If you decide you dont want one of them send it my way

    'twas me! Not so sure how it'd look on wire lugs, but here's some pics on my MM:

    A man with one watch knows what time it is..
    A man with two watches is never quite sure.

    Looks outstanding. I´m already considering fixed lugs and watchadoo.
    But thats not watchadoo, is it? It´s bandFever bracelet?

    That bracelet + this = perfect combo (for me at least)

    It won't look right mate, it will look Mickey Mouse IMO, just not the watch for a bracelet .
    The 24mm watchadoo is a 22mm with a 24mm end piece.

    Sewn in all the way just fits the watch perfectly.
