I've found that the Chronissimo overpowers a lot of 42mm and under watches. But the width of the strap matches the outside measurements of the 14070's lugs exactly, making it appear as if it was made for it. It gives the watch a presence on the wrist that I have up to now only been able to achieve with the bracelet.

Not vintage.....but it has lug holes (Montres Rolex has abandoned them, bah humbug) & non-SEL & tinfoil clasp.



I will probably be here most of the time as there seem to be lug hole haters on the non-vintage section.......& my Montres Rolex watches are old school style.
