Thanks Ming. This is my favorite watch.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. That’s an interesting question Art and one worth noting. I am finding that there is a sharp edge on the bottom of the case between the lugs. Essentially, the lip of the caseback seems to be cutting into the bottom of my straps (on the Explorer and my Oyster Perpwtual). It’s not something that’s a big deal since it’s not visible. But, I am sure it will create premature wear and tear on the strap.

I wish JLC made more black dial watches. ❤️

Hi Mike, the material is called Saffiano leather. I ordered the strap in this color combo and in a custom length for my 7.5 inch wrist from ZicZac leathers out of Vietnam. I’ve been buying straps from there for years.

Thanks. You never know if the colors will work until you see things in person but this matched up nicely.

Thats why I keep staring at this particular Ludwig. I didn’t know enamel dial versions existed. 🍻

I’ve heard complaints that Omega makes too many versions of the same watch. I completely disagree. It’s awesome that there are so many flavors of these amazing watches.
