    Changed leather for rubber band on my Sinn 103

    I didn't like the Sinn leather band. This one is a Hadley Roma and now I can actually get my watch wet!

    I may switch it with one that has white stitching.

    I know some people think the only thing more gauche than a rubber band is a NATO-style one but this makes the watch much more practical.

    This forum is great it helped me decide on a Sinn when I was looking to buy a watch.

    I think the olive NATO with PVD hardware contrasts well with titanium:

    OK, it's not a Sinn, but it's just for reference. I have yet buy a 20mm olive NATO for my 103 Ti.

    I do not mind the NATO strap look. For hikers and the like that I think it is a good choice and I agree against the Titanium it looks good.

    It does give off a totally casual look which is a nice contrast.

    Apparently a very popular choice among Hipsters which, for me, is enough reason not to choose it!

    Didn't notice you were in Comnifornia...guess I'd be anti-hipster-gear-wearer as well!

    I'm liking the strap. Did you have to notch it for the narrower lugs or did it come that way?

    BTW Freeman, I'm digging your avatar. Helmut Sinn is the man!

    Too many poseur hipsters, yes.

    The band came with the notches... I'm not sure I'm so keen on them. I didn't notice the notches until the band came.

    To complete the hispter look (or semi-Steampunk) I'd need a Nixon watch... like this (and a plaid tie and vest):
