I'll probably go for something similar as I do like brown leather straps. But I'll get a good one for sure.

Luckily in the meantime I had this put away for a rainy day, and actually it's pretty festive looking so perfect timing!

None more black

Hardly! I run a hotel, so I'm on the go all day but it's hardly manual labour!

The picture maybe looks a little more dramatic than the reality. I think it's mainly superficial at the moment around the springbar, but it doesn't feel that solid.

Luckily hasn't detracted from the watch, I still love it very much. But would hate to end up resenting it because it fell off my wrist or something like that.

I mean I live in Scotland, not exactly famous for being a tropical paradise ๐Ÿ˜… and I'm wearing probably 3 times a week on average.

I agree, they look good when you first buy them. But asking for trouble down the line. I don't do anything too strenuous with this watch on so it is pretty disappointing

No but I will be! I just noticed it around the spring bar when I took it off this evening.

I knew about the delamination around the buckle but wasn't too worried about that in terms of the integrity of the strap. But now I've seen the spring bar area I'll not be putting it back on!

Yeah I've put it in the box and won't be putting it back on till it's changed!
