@rd Also, I have expensive tastes. I keep pricing out the watch I want and it gets up there quick. Living on a farm, I want more than the aluminum version, and am concerned with keeping it clean when I work around hay and manure. I have a hard time with big ticket purchases :)
@scully Competely understand. You want it to look nice and be durable for sure. I bought one of the aluminum models (slate grey I suppose it's called) but swapped out the silicon band for a full-grain leather one I picked up from a company in Texas. Best upgrade ever.
@rd I covet this band: https://www.popovleather.com/collections/leather-watch-straps
I found them via an IG ad (ugh) and bought a belt.
@scully Those are some really nice straps. Check out Arrow & Board (arrowandboard.com) for some of their ones too. So nice.
