Hodinkee book & Bernhardt strap w/ Alpinist

Nothing like a new book on watches from Hodinkee (gotta master more of the basics). Added this new strap from Bernhardt Watches in High Point, NC on my Seiko SPB123 cream dial Alpinist. I had never heard of Bernhardt until Michael at Theo & Harris mentioned them on their latest "affordable alternatives" video. I have to say, I wasn't necessarily a fan of what I saw on Bernhardt's site, but this strap was a perfect find for this watch. Kind of like a TGV design from Wristcandy Watch Club. I think they all go well for a quiet Saturday night. I'll do a full book review in a later post.
