I have the Blue 58 and I would go either green or black with this strap. Blue on blue is too much for me.

Wow this is the first watch from this collection that has grabbed my attention. I love me a metal bezel and this design overall just works for me.

Congrats! This is such a darn cool watch. People normally have to pay hundreds of thousands for โ€œfunโ€ Rolexes but this one is sitting right here! Good choice, Iโ€™m a fan.

I learned to stay away from their leather. Half the time I canโ€™t even get the strap secured to the watch because the springbar openings are so damaged and frayed. I just stick with their nylon and find it to be good for the price.

Mike_2 commented on Should I move up to the Black FXD ยท

As a BB58 owner and lover, I say go for it. As long as you can live without the versatility of the 58, the FXD Is fantastic. I tried one on too and was blown away (if they made it smaller I would probably trade out too).

My opinion:

1 watch guy - BB58

Part of a collection - FXD
