    i do have a dark brown perlon! but that won’t work on this watch. you know quirky timex...19mm lugs on this model. barton offers odd sized straps in their elite silicon model (18mm through 24mm) so if you ever need a 19, 21 or 23 look no further! it’s a functional well made strap, and it fits nicely with this watch i believe.

    Got this with the crystal swapped and no hands attached.

    The original hands don't have lume on them and are white.
    The white matched the minute ring and other printing on the dial,
    but the hours are marked with greenish lume.
    The new hands have the same greenish lume.

    The faceted hour indices were terribly dirty from the factory.
    Cleaning them, the dial and inside of the crystal took almost an hour
    under a stereo scope with dual light guides...

    The Indiglo paddle switch was deformed into a constant-on position so it had to be reformed.

    I really like the orange bezel as the sun shines on it and changes the saturation - and it is different with 45 minutes of color.

    Unfortunately for me, it is ø42mm and a little too big for my 6-¾" wrist.

    This isn't even all of them, just most of the really loud ones!

    I bury these in a drawer because they're too loud for daily wear (my office is pretty quiet). I like all of these, and have worn all of them but don't regularly. I may need to do a bulk sale of a bunch of them - the Snoopy ones aren't going anywhere though.
