    Tried Otto Frey hands? That’s who I usually use, but don’t have a particular reason. I’d love to hear why if Esslinger is better.

    Would you put them on a guitar?
    I would, of course, this idea is swell
    I cannot take this pic right now
    But, come tonight I hope to do it well

    (This is f'ing great. Why are we rhyming again? Happy B'day, Doc!)

    I do think it’s a really great strap.

    Anyone have experience/opinions on either?
    ^^Excuse the black-eye, allow me to rectify!^^

    My goodness, that I've failed to recall
    How thoughtless, truly an embarrassment to all!

    Indeed today is the second of March, or nearly so
    And our thirty-second thread (minus the thirteenth pas-faux)
    So today we gather, to talk of Doctors and Docs, cookies, and wrist tick-tocks
    Taking extra time to rhyme, some of us while on the clock!

    Excuse that I've disremembered, I'm not a charter member
    And allow me to repose - no, not to rest, but to re-ask my request!

    It concerns a gilt dial I've acquired, one from a bro quite well-admired.
    Pondering diameters, openings, and feet (none of this my forté, frankly I'm beat!)
    Then my brain had a thought, my druthers won't hear no...
    A plan you'll all pooh-pooh, one that'll give you the sharts:
    By gee, I'll stick that golden disc in a quartz!

    My mind won't be swayed, I've chosen My Way
    So I ask in a manner entirely Frank:
    por favor mis hermanos, miran estas manos
    Tell me, do they compare, do they have enough flair?
    Say what you will, just know that small hands simply won't fit the bill,
    Maybe it's snobby, but its more than a phobie
    Brachymesophalangy: having small hands is anything but dandy!

    Posting in verse: one more reason to love our own clockwork universe!

    It will be more like:

    me: (looking at a watch I need to have. Looking very interested.)
    best wife of all: "Do you like it? Looks nice."
    me: "Yes, nice. But I have so many watches, I don't need another one."
    best wife of all: "Are you sure? If you like it, take it."
    me: "Hmmm, no, I wouldn't feel good to buy another expensive toy just for me."
    later, in the cafe nearby:
    me: (staring at the espresso)
    best wife of all: "You want it, right. I'll go and buy it for you." (leaves the cafe)
    me: 😇 😘

    Thanks bros - I've (muff!) dived deep into the catalogs of both Ofrei and Esslinger - but neither have anything over 12mm in a style that would work on a sub!

    All these shops have similar selections within a buck or two of each other, so I guess I'll just take a chance on CasKer and hope for a good fit.

    I very very rarely order from ofrei only because I don't like their website.

    Recycled pic so sorry.
    Can't wrap my mind around a rhyme.
    This thing has a small movement, big plastic movement holder, fixed bezel and push pull crown.
    It goes nearly 5 ounces and I can't figure out why!
