    Damaskos can also be problematic with thicker straps. I have a 2006 DA37 and a 2009 DC56, and when Damasko released their bracelet both would have had to be returned for the bracelet to be fitted as...

    Been waiting for a while for a spare for one of the 20mm, and also the same colour to add to the 18mm selection. Luckily there's just been a restock. :pig:

    Decided to wear the 20mm Flight Deck one last time before it's first wash, this time on my PRS-5 Broadarrow. I'm leaving the 22mm unwashed for now so I can gauge how quickly (or not) the colour...

    I originally wanted this colour in 18mm for my PRS-68, but it was out of stock so I got a Quarter Deck instead. In truth I like them equally. First a shot of the two shades, then the watches they've...

    My first Haveston was a Fortress, and back then they still did straps in the standard Nato layout. Perhaps a tad thicker than the canvas, the "extra bit" was soon removed (as I usually end up doing...
