Not really a new watch alert, more rather a new look alert lol.
The 2 watches in the photo :
top row - Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical
bottom row - Baltic Aquascaphe Blue Gilt
Not too sure the term “strap monsters” are still used in the watch community. But this 2 pieces of mine are definitely my kind of ”strap monsters” and my most worn watch till date.
Usually spending my time ogling youtube reviews and instagram of new and innovative watches On my free time. With the limited budget i have, i can’t afford to buy every watch i drool upon. So my solution to this was to buy new straps and change them up and continue to enjoy these watches in a different looks. Personally, i do own a few(5) other watches as well and also tries to allocate wrist time to all but still this 2 are the gada as they feel like a new watch when i change out the straps.
Do you strap change to prolong the longevity of your love to your current watches?
Do you strap change for the different climate and occasions?
Or simply sell or replace another watch when you are bored of it?
love to see your ”strap monsters” and thoughts!
