I knew I'd find something to put this red band on!

New to me.... running Wrist Alarm.  Dual crowns both marked.  Needs a redial.... but runs!  RUNS!  Sweet....

ps  also I'm a wuss and don't want to mess up the back of the watch when I try to mongo the case back off so I maybe just send the whole thing to Mike and have him picture it after he fixes it.

So... dunno the year and movement info just yet.


PSS.... The original title for this post was I know I'd find something to put this red strap on.... but... uhmm.. haha.. this is a family site! =P

I didn't wanna come right out and say it, but IMO, it looks pretty "Gay", Something you could be "Proud" to wear, if you catch the meanining.

Nope, I wouldn't wear it but if you dig it, wear it. I wish I could be a fly on the wall when the guys at work see it.  LOL  Maybe they'll get you a pink outfit for some of your high profile work. Oh what a disquise, who'd be able to guess.  rotflmao

Now that's an...interesting look!  If I can get away with wearing a teeny tiny rose gold Senator on my big hairy arm, you can manage that one.

Elgin made a watch, the El Dorado (commonly known as the Golden Knight) that originally came on a lemon-yellow lizard strap.  I've been daring one of the guys on WTF who has one to get the right strap and wear it.

We'll see if he's man enough!  ;-)
