I don’t always match my leathers, but when I do its with my bean boots.

So good to have this guy back on my wrist. Periodic service is an important step in a watch lasting a lifetime.

On the hunt for the perfect distressed leather strap from my vintage Sub. If you got suggestion throw them out.

Rolex Caliber 1575: Robust, elegant, and an exceptional timekeeper. Amazing that a 44 year old watch is still holding +/- 2 seconds a day.

I’m in #phoenixaz this week. If anyone knows some friendly AD’s to stop in on let me know. I was thinking of hitting up @azfinetime But I’m open to other suggestions.

In other obvious news, cactus are sharp and my fingers paid the price for this one.

No filter, additional lighting or photo manipulation. The #grandseiko #sbgm021 level of finishing is simply perfect.

Just as no two flowers are alike, the same can be said of watches. The scratches, dents, blemishes and aging make each one unique. I like that built history though experience.

It can be hard to capture how beautiful the #grandseiko #sbgm021 is. However, with a little inspiration from #bandrbands and some fortunate #watchphotography lighting, I think I came pretty close.
Twice since picking up the #haliosseaforth #gmt I have been asked my thoughts regarding it vs. #rolex #216570 so here we go:

First off the case lugs and shape are different. The drilled lugs do bring back a bit of feel of early serial #16570  but drilled lugs are a hallmark of vintage sport watches. The crystal prominence has a distinct vintage flare closer to a BB58, something again that is a hallmark of 60’s divers. The bezel design on the Seaforth rotates as opposed to a fixed bezel on the polar Explorer. Additionally the date window is 6 vs 3. The Halios has a different handset though the orange accent of the GMT hand does bear a resemblance. 
I think it’s only natural to draw comparisons in today’s market if you release a White dialed, steel bezeled GMT sports watch, but after two weeks on my wrist, I can comfortably say that the Halios stands on its own design.

The #ruben at The Sandwich Board in #alameda is the closest I’ve found to a NYC #deli on the west coast.

Happy #speedytuesday #watchfam
How important do you think it is to match your leather bands to your belt, shoes ect? Nitpicking or a must?
