  2. I'd want an alligator on such a refined piece. Contrast stitching is not my thing, but I can add no logic for such a preference. It's absolutely a personal choice. So for me, a black or blue alligator sir! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  4. New to me this week. Feeling the bling of my first gold (plated) watch. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. WHile we're on the subject of leather watch straps, has anyone here found their new strap to be squeaky? My new alligator strap appears to be squeaking when it rubs against the lugs. A first for me, lol.
  6. I've never been to White Hart Lane. I've been to Three Point Lane a fair few times over the years though The new stadium is absolutely breath-taking imho
  7. Lol, indeed. Appreciate you bringing the thread back on topic. I guess it's the padding rather than the leather that's causing the issue. I'll continue flexing on both straps as aside from their unwillingness to conform to my wrist shape they're both rather nice. On one, however, even the unpadded end is quite stiff, so maybe a leather nourishing/softening product might help, even if only marginally.

  8. That's exactly my problem. The thick padding just doesn't want to give. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  10. Also from the bay, and also a homage of sorts I'd say. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. Cheers for that. I've found something on Amazon called Neatsfoot oil, which apparently softens up stiff or old leather. Both of my straps requiring some extra flexibility are black, so I'm assuming colour alteration shouldn't be an issue. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. So I've been on a bit of a spree in recent months. Four new watches, all mechanical (which is a turn up for a previously quartz only guy), and all on leather. Three are brand new and one is used. One of the four I bought on a bracelet but immediately switched to a Zlimsn alligator strap which has been super supple and comfortable from day one. The used one is very comfortable - maybe broken in already? Two have straps that are very nice but quite uncomfortable due to being very stiff. They just don't seem to want to conform to my fairly flat wrist shape, and leave the watch floating above the top side of my wrist. Is this something anyone else here has experienced? And if so, what's the best course of action? Sent from my SM-T230NU using Tapatalk
  13. Brilliant tale. Huge respect to all the participants. Proud to be affiliated to such honourable people through this excellent forum. Sent from my SM-T230NU using Tapatalk
  14. New one (used but new to me) in today. Fresh from the Post Office! I will be posting a thread shortly to invite comment from the esteemed ranks of TWF. I reckon this one might split opinion (assuming at least a few of my brothers agree its a decent watch lol), being a 'fashion brand' Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. Cheers KAS How's the world of boutique watches sir?!
