    It is also on eBay, but I compared prices, and it was cheaper for me on Amazon. I should also mention, it is a quartz. I don't know if that will put you off it or not. Personally I don't mind.
    Thank you for the thorough response. I find it gorgeous, I know it is quartz, and it is a bit let down... but my main concern is the size, 44 is a bit large to me, the largest one I have is currently 43, and 40 is usually my sweet spot :)
    Thanks again for sharing, and please post a lot of photos when it arrives safely. Wear it in good health my friend

    As you might remember (which would be good because I don't), about 6 months ago I ordered a bracelet for my Hamilton Khaki Pilot Pioneer. I just got an email from the AD saying that Hamilton posted the bracelet yesterday. Soon. I hope, my watch will look like this :



    You might want to start taking bets...
    The watch strap is supposed to be in Sweden now. If it is the correct one. Last time they sent the wrong one. Anyway, have to wait until Monday to find out when the delivery service people are working again.

    No that's actually a Halios strap from the bronze tropik series. Great strap actually.

    I didn't think that I would buy another 45mm watch, but with the 10% off at Helson, I had to grab this standout (pic from Helson):

    I've had a need for a gold-tone watch in my collection for a while, and so I purchased a Seiko SSC210 solar chronograph (courtesy of Jomashop's Seiko sale):

    and also just took advantage of the 50% Timex sale on Amazon to get this weekender as a weekend beater. At $12, it's a no brainer.

    Any suggestions for a fun leather strap for the weekender? I'm not a big NATO wearer.

    Thanks.

    Edit - went with the Anchorage from C&B. Should look good with it.

    Well I nearly made it until 2015 without buying another watch, but for $63 i figured why not. Will be one of 3 chronos headed my way in the coming months. Plan to add a Seiko SSC229 at some point with Nadim's new Helgray chrono shortly after. The 3 o'clock subdial is a 1/20th second dial. I would have preferred it to be an accumulator but eh, c'est la vie.
