    New Strap for my Cannonball (Pics)

    Just got a new strap for my Cannonball and wanted to show it off!!!! The bracelet for this watch is superb, but I am finding that a watch with a nice strap gets worn a lot more in my rotation.

    I have worn this watch three days in a row since getting the strap. I can't remember the last time I wore a watch two days in a row, but three fugetaboutit.

    Dark brown large grain alligator 21/18, 120/80 with a Ball tang buckle. Jeanna at Stone Creek Straps made it for me.

    Enjoy!!!

    I like that! Seems that there are so many gotta-have-a-bracelet folks out there, but I for one prefer the strap look on most watches. That one's a keeper!

    The history of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show dates back to what year, when there was established the first Schweizer Mustermesse Basel (MUBA) with a special section devoted to watches and jewellery?

    Really super looking. Is this the padded or unpadded version, and matte or glazed?

    thanks for the pics... got a quick question.

    I can see the tubes on the blued hands, but how noticeable are they in a daylight setting on a daily basis? Do they detract and overcome the blued hands, or do they fade to the background once you're used to them?

    Fantastic custom Gator strap on your C-Ball! Looks nice and bony! (more so than mine)

    I have the Leonardo Genius Gator on my Heritage.

    Pretty much the same as the tubes on my blued hands rVbert8. They are a non-factor and very subtle in daylight and evening wear/attire. So it WILL not 'embarrass' one in a suit or Tux

    This is a 'shot' at an OLD thread about BALL not having dress watches to which we ALL took offence to and went to another Forum to dispute.

    The Trainmaster line tubes are subtle and I really only notice mine in pitch black darkness lying in bed. Never do I notice it in evening or when any type of light is on, in the background (indoor or outdoor).
