Match the strap to lume... I'm not the only one, right?

Last time I showed a strap pairing to match the Berlac Fluor Orange of my Fortis Flieger F-39. This time, I wanted to try and match the other accent c...

I never used to be into strap changes. But, nowadays it's almost a necessity to have decent options.

Same strap (Erika's Original White MN Strap as in my last post), different watch (Serica 5303-1). Just checking out the potential different effect the...

Thanks. Check out my previous post if u haven't seen it already where I matched the orange instead. I thought that worked pretty well, also.

I do like that look a lot, too. I haven't had a concave bezel in quite a long time. The last one maybe around 10 years ago. Reference Vostok-Europe Ekranoplan Caspian Sea Monster Watch 2432.01/5455107 if you want to see. Pretty cool looking watch, but, that was when I was into larger watches. But, it had a cool concave bezel, also.

If you could feel the bezel action.. it's super crisp and precise.

Also, to quickly put it, I prefer to read the time wherever I'm at, home or new local, with the main hour hand and not a more obscure pointer GMT hand.. It feels like a background feature and IF and when I'm in a new time zone, I want to read my watch and time as I normally would at home with the main hour hand. All you have to do with the Purist is rotate the bezel to new local time and you simultaneously read both your home and new local time with the main hour hand.

And, the Purist is the original way the Airman was design and sold before they added the 4th GMT hand for a different time reading method.

Essentially correct. And, the forward hour advance that would be on the GMT hand is removed.. too bad as it could be a quick resolution to a jumping hour and be almost like a true or travelers GMT.

I think why they didn't leave that feature in is because you'd easily lose your reference point for when the actual date change is at.. remember it is probably still working off the double revolution of a 12-hr format to do the date change. As thr 24 hr on a standard caller/office GMT hand, for which this movement is based on,  normally won't do a date change over by itself. Makes sense?

Trying a new White MN Strap with Black Centerline on my Helson Shark Diver 38 Blasted Titanium Full Lume Dial. I think it's a go!
