Incoming!! 007 seamaster (please share you strap combo)

I've been interested in this watch since a year ago when I first acquired my 1861 but never pulled the trigger due to multiple concerns(fits, titanium grade 2 etc.) today I went to sell my 1861 hesalite since I'm planning to upgrade it to a 3861 sapphire. The dealer showed me this. Despite being underwhelm with the color (due to the lightings) I pulled the trigger as I was quite under pressure (time, my girlfriend insist I should take it as I've been considering it for the past few months) luckily after several lighting (outdoor & everywhere else) it's lovely! And I'm 100% hooked. It wore comfortably on my 6.8" wrist. The vintage look to the lume brightness. Now I'm even questioning if I still need the 3861 sapphire as this can be my only omega. And move on to something like the IWC Portuguese 7 days blue dial instead? Thoughts.







Planning to also getting it on Nato should I get the OEM? Please share your strap combo as well.

I love the 3861 but should I rather get the IWC instead ? Thought please.



I loved my 1861 it was my daily but it was on a leather strap + nato as I hated the bracelet. However, I Love the 3861 bracelet and this time I wanted the see through caseback as well. Please feel free to share your thoughts.

Personally, the 3861 is a much nicer watch to wear than the IWC. I own and love my 3861...and I have zero need for a dress watch. It all depends on what you need/want.

Thanks guys! I'm really leaning toward the 3861 now as I do missed it a lot! Waiting for the AD shipment next week. Also planning on getting a D-blue, batman, or a 116613 lb to round the collection out.

Here's a lumeshot of the nttd for no particular reason haha

That's actually what I did. Unintentionally, I was suppose to sell the 1861 to get the 3861 but once the dealer showed me this I decided to get it first while waiting on the 3861. Being without a speedmaster in a collection makes me realize I need it as well!

Very nice! must be very comfortable. I'm considering the Nato strap but the price is hard to swallow when I'm not sure I'll like it. I can imagine if there's a brown OEM rubber strap to go with it I'd be sold
