    The Saxonia is a lovely dress watch. Love the shot of the back as much or more than the front. Amazing work for the money. HS

    That strap I have was for my JLC, and the lug width of that watch is 17mm, so obviously the strap width is 17mm. The lug width on the Saxonia however is 19mm, so that strap probably wouldn’t look good on that beautiful looking ALS anyway.

    It looks like a good strap, just not the best fit. Maybe on the seiko (which is a nice watch, btw). I think the more sporting strap would look really nice on it.

    True, which is why I’m going to get another strap from Toshi, but only if it can be done thinner. Btw, that Toshi Strap I have is a Shell Cordovan, but is around 4.5mm thick.

    Well sure, but why put a chunky strap on an ultra-thin watch?

    @spritzer Yea I've been using the 009S for a few days and I've pretty much decided to return and get an 007A and do the port mod (any other good mods?). 009S while being very nible detailed and airy sounded unnaturally airy to me but not bright which was a weird sensation to be sure. It was like listening to each instrument play individually of each other rather than a whole musical piece per se. I do think to my ears it is better than the OG 009. I have never heard the 007A off a nice amp so I look forward to getting it and a Carbon shortly after.

    Fuck in snow

    Last I heard it was going to be less snow, but more sleet/freezing rain....then a massive chill coming Monday..... My wife and mother-in-law were supposed to fly to FL tonight, when we first saw the snow delaying until later Saturday night, she decided not to try and get an earlier flight. She just found out this morning it was cancelled. They are now tentatively going out Monday morning....hoping the roads will be OK and they can make it....

    That’s the main reason I replaced my Gen 2 because otherwise it was working great.

    Here's to hoping you have enough push-blower-fuel to get you through your tough times.
  15. I guess it's been so long since I've heard the amen break used in a song, this seems kinda cool.

    That's not the strap for the Saxonia. Stay with reptile or go with unlined Shell Cordovan, as thin as possible.

    We're pretty much on the southern edge of the 10-18 range with the bonus of being near the coast with significant potential for ice after the snow stops tomorrow morning. In other news, the tractor shit the bed so I had to buy a walk-behind snowblower for now.

    Nope, it sold for 2.1million, then straight back on the market for 1.8million (not a few days later, next day). That listing was for a couple of cycles then the price lowered again to open for bids. Sold for about 1.7million but right back up on the market. Yeah...something is very, very fishy here. It's not uncommon for something to sell for silly money and then be back up for auction a few days later. This is not that...

    Thanks for that SeaWolf. Yeah I do like that Toshi strap, plus it should go well with that saxonia, so I’ll have it put on. Love showing photos, so here’s two of that strap.

    Dave R If you like the other strap more I would not hesitate based on the notion that the saxonia needs to stay as it comes from the factory. All straps after time deteriorate and need replacement. So if you have a strap you really love just swap it.

    I believe nobody has ever bid, so it gets announced again.

    They have been for sale for a while now and keep reappearing... something is up there.

    Speaking of which, the first Omegas ever (supposedly serial #1) are now for sale: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/g324619523

    I agree as most of engineers behind the development of original Omega aren't around now, it would be a herculean task to replicate the magic. I'm all for the new folks to pull it off, fingers crossed.
