    Summer fun... Big and bright

    Couldn't resist this new old stock Ploprof. Big and bright. Nice to take stickers off a 'new' watch again. Been some time as most now already have them removed by the dealers.

    Comes with massive white strap, but picked up the orange from TZer (thanks!). Definitely something for for the summer and maybe beyond with working from home. Wears very easily.

    Congrats Alun, that looks absolutely great! Is this Ti or steel? I've said this many times, if I wore watches on my left wrist I'd have picked up a plopprof years ago. Really works with the orange strap too!

    Hi J. Cheers. It's steel. I did see a number of comments that the Ti is too light. I'm open to a Ti in time though if the bug bites.

    Looks great, and a watch I've always fancied, did you get any pics of it on the white strap before the swapover?

    Great watch, love the Ploprof - an itch I will scratch at some point no doubt, especially on the rubber.

    Sorry, I didn't. Was planning to get it onto white pretty pronto, but the orange works so well that I'll leave it for now.

    Having just picked up another Ploprof I now have a mesh to try this on....

    I think it prefer it on rubber, but it does give an option.
