So, there are many, many, many wonderful people here on WatchCrunch:
@celinesimon if you want knowledge and insights from an industry professional
@Aurelian if you want to laugh your butt off from all the one-line zingers, where somehow he manages always to be the first post in every thread
@chronotriggered for every hilarious post in which he talks about how he’s losing his shirt over the most recent vintage acquisition, how he hates vintage watches, how he’s vowing never again to make this mistake… and then 3 days later, @chronotriggered’s new post, in which he talks about how he’s losing his shirt over the most recent…
@Bessio and @Robcollects for nobly stepping up and making high bids on auction watches, and ensuring some of the poorest of the poor will have their poverty alleviated to some small extent
@PopitonaNATO for reminding the rest of us that we’re old and that the cold, bony hand of death is coming for the rest of us soon, meanwhile, at that point, he’ll probably be a freshman in college or something
There’s even this guy, @Max. I have no idea what he does, but whatever, he’s here too
And there are many, many, many more wonderful folks here on this forum - too many to adequately praise.
But, none of you are my favorite. Nope. Not a single one of you qualifies. You all pale in comparison to the best person on this site. And that person is @Jericho!
“Why? Why, oh dear lord, has this come to pass?” you might be asking yourself at this very moment. “Why am I not Omeganut’s favorite?” you may be crying, as you gnash your teeth and rend your garments.
Well, the answer is that, unlike you, @Jericho has made, for me, five custom straps for Omega-style deployant clasp! FIVE!!! And they are out of this world cool.
Strap #1 - Baby blue chicken foot leather! This is my Liberace strap. When I want to feel fabulous, this is what goes on my wrist!
Strap #2 - Brown goat skin leather! It’s soft and supple… like… soft and supple goat skin
Strap #3 - Cognac chicken foot leather! Notice how nicely the cognac strap matches with the golden hued GS logo and seconds hand???
Strap #4 - Grayish olive goat skin leather! It’s soft and supple… like… well, you already know. And I think it matches nicely with the grayish dark hued titanium
Strap #5 - Brown chicken foot leather! Kinda offsets the muddy green of the SBGE257
And, look! In addition to all the straps, @jericho even included a hand-made leather watch pouch and a hand-made suede strap holder!
All this for a criminally low price relative to any other custom strap maker I’ve ever commissioned from.
Well, now, I hope we’ve all learned a valuable lesson here today. In the future, if you wish to be Omeganut’s favorite forum member, you know what to do, yeah? Chop-chop. Get on it.
