Lovely watches, where did you get the leather strap and suede straps from your first post?

Love this one especially:

PO Box ok? I'll let you ship your scrap watches so I can learn more emoji6.png
Jokes aside, thanks mate. Means a lot to hear from fellow horology fans.
 

Au contraire-I thought someone should pay your watches a visit....

Thank you. The tan one is from Bob's watches, came with my Gen 16013 and the rest are from an eBay seller 02straps. Great guy with some cool products. I almost buy all straps exclusively from him now.

Not really.

I've never done anything clever!

Small tweaks make a big difference. Shaved the CGs and finally got close to making the ever lusted after ghost bezel.

 

Need to shave the insert a bit to get the recessed fit.

 

Strap or bracelet? Pick your poison.
