Your big blue Speedy looks sweet, as well!
Good hearing from you buddy. I'm still loving the watch. Everything good to go here, take care Jim

I’d be lying if I said I don’t have a pair or two, I concur, super comfy!

Nice watch, too!

Well if you’ve only got one (I do too) that’s a really good one to have on repeat!

Wow, that looks great! What was on there prior to this strap? Bracelet?

Yes, a bracelet, which is also very comfortable. Just needed a change without purchasing a new watch.

Don't own a Omega but this would be my choice. I like the light gray dial with blue hands with the blue leather strap. I have the AK on rubber and the DJ41 on oyster so I think the Omega AT with blue leather would fit right in. How long have you owned it and what's you opinion on it?

Bittersweet day today...warranty is almost up on my baby (the car), and it just had some major mechanical issues that were fixed. Deciding to let her go while I’m ahead. Don’t want to see if those problems were a harbinger of worse issues to come.

A7. Fuel line/injectors, cylinders, and thermostat...not to mention the tiny crack in the windshield that would cost me over $2k to replace/recalibrate instead of the usual $300 cash it typically is for a windshield.

Nice car, surprised to hear that. That's crazy about the windshield.

I've always considered German cars but have stayed away from them for a long time. Had a Volkswagen back in the 90's and had nothing but problems with it. Traded it in less than a year after I got it. I simply won't keep a car that strands me on the side of the road as that one did.

Wife goes with Japanese cars, I go with U.S. At least with the U.S. cars I know I will have some issues and I usually know what those issues will be but they are relatively easy to fix. With highly engineered European cars I have no clue.

I switched back to us. Bought an at4 a few months back and this new, different kind of fun, toy today.

The A7 was fun and will be missed, but I think I’ll like the value holding of this better!

Ahh a Wrangler. That was my last vehicle until I moved over to my current Grand Cherokee SRT. I miss my old Wrangler, but there are things I don't miss about it too LOL. The GC is my third Jeep in a row (Liberty - Wranger - GC)

It is one of my favorite watches, and I purchased it about ten months ago. It does currently get the most wrist time of any in the stable.

Comfortable on a bracelet, or the rubber strap w/deployment buckle.

It seems to work well in any situation as today I am in cargo shorts and flip flops, tomorrow I'll be in jeans, work boots and a hardhat while on Monday I'll be in a suit and the watch still fits perfectly.

I would highly recommend owning one.
