A man, in his own words, forging a ridiculously sexy watch.I think it might be!
Making the world's most 80's watch
Oh my! That's exactly what I have been doing, goofing around straps recently!
I have a Royale but I didn't like the initial metal strap because it was a bit too bulky and to adjust it, it is finicky at best.
But I recently bought myself a spring bar removal tool, since I want to goof around straps/bracelets more - going to give a bit of a pause buying watches per se - but I didn't want to go to the watchmaker every time just to change it. At first I bought some aftermarket rubber straps, and although they are decent looking, I wish I could get a comfier option. So I thought about the A158 I had.
The strap is from an used A158 I bought for myself, since I gave my original one to mom. I loved the metal strap on it, it feels comfortable on my wrist and the adjustable clasp is far easier to use and to adjust than the folding links biz - I can kinda nail the nail the micro-adjustment holes with the same tool, but why not mix two different watches at the same time?
Turns out the result was a bit silly, but it works. the A158 strap is far thinner than the AE1200 but otherwise it looks good as well. If anything, it's my guilty pleasure to use a big watch with a tiny strap.
And this is how the twin looks like. A bit stiff because the strap is thicker than the original, but you could rock it, I suppose.
I like the twin!
It's pulling all of its charms 😙👌
Does he explain the blue accents on that F-91W band anywhere? I could not do a resin case with a shiny metal bracelet. I thought he'd be gun-bluing the bracelet or something.
No Sir.This is to watches what Don Johnson's rolled up blazers are to men's sartorial conventions:Something else! 😂
Regular guy enjoying watches with subtle accents of orange 😙👌
