Do you also use a clock app on your iPad to tell the time, possibly with a nice Nato strap and some fava beans?

Good points - generally, I'm on board with whatever floats your boat, especially with watches, as long as no one gets hurt. I think the point the author is trying to make is that he only bought them to flip, and that "hurt" other potential buyers who would have worn them.

Rolex designs are mostly unappealing to me, but I do like a green watch, and you might say Rolex started a green wave with this.  Still, without interviewing the owner, it's a tough call as to whether he was collecting or investing (or both)...  It's also not clear that anyone was hurt by this, at least not enough to justifying a tar and feathering...

timegeek commented on What’s your favourite strap ·

I enjoy a variety of strap materials and types as much as a variety of watches, and also change straps to match the situation.  Seeing how others pair straps with watches on WRUW gives me ideas, too.  I will replace OEM straps and bracelets if they aren't good enough.

For example, although the Casio Duro strap is decent, especially for the cost, I found a great replacement bracelet that turns it into a much more premium watch.

@Jericho makes some great regular and exotic leather straps (the one made from chicken feet is one of my favorite straps). I like to wear it on the Weiss Ultralight, a strap monster.

BTW, @SeanS79, some Seiko bracelets are OK, but I'd include Casio, Orient, and Vostok in a list of bracelets to beware...
