It's black and white

I have a small collection of watches I love. But if I had to pare it down to the bare minimum I'd have trouble choosing between these two. Together, they make a pretty killer two-watch collection.

The Explorer never leaves the bracelet. I just didn't like the 124270 on anything else.

The SMP300 gets put on a different strap almost every day. My current favorite is this Zuludiver Octopod deployant buckle for nato straps. But I also love this on Artem sailcloth and, of course, the OEM black rubber. It occasionally sees time on my Forstner flat link bracelet.

Just declare that your bare minimum is two and you’re all set.

Atsa nice pair ya’ll got there…… Missy. 😉😆

No one needs more than this combo and a bunch of different bracelets/straps

I have these 2 boys as well. What tool do you use for changing straps for the seamaster? Does it have a lot of scratches on the lugs like mine?

I have a cheapo "tweezer" style one from Amazon that looks like this. My lugs aren't very scratched up. There is a gouge or two... I'm not very careful any of my watches 🤫

Sounds like a good plan! 😃

Agreed. But at the same time, if I had not bought all the straps and bracelets I have, I probably could've afforded a nice Christopher Ward! 😂

Can’t complain regarding that pair. Both carry out all the duties you would need a watch for! 👌
