How to make the worlds best travel watch even better?

IMHO and as Commander-In-Chief of The Nylon Nation, a custom strap from Erika's Originals. While on the road, dashing thru airports, or exploring new places, these straps have so much to offer.

-Custom order size, color combo, and hardware to match any watch.
-Amazingly comfortable, unobstructed wrist movement.
-Eliminates all bracelet wear.
-Potentially attracts less unwanted attention.
-Withstands all weather conditions & drys quickly.
-Added safety in the event of unexpected spring bar failure.

Here's my GMT II on MN on during a recent visit to Martha's Vineyard.

How long have you owned the MN for? I really like the look, but concerned about the elastic lifespan.

I've owned 2 for about 6 months. Both look like the day they were delivered. The material is more substantial than expected yet very compliant. I'm sure they'll wear over time but doubt it will be any time soon.

MMMMMM wondering what colour combo I should order with my Rolex Explorer... tempted by the Green - yellow - just because that is the classic... but yours is the Trident with brushed? Looks great!

Not bad. It looks comfortable. I'd personally prefer something that didn't add height under the case and a lighter color scheme. I'll have to research these and see what options exist.

Speaking of unwanted attention, I just attended a trade show with ~130,000 attendees and only one person asked about the GMT on my wrist. It's funny how noticeable we think a watch is until reality says otherwise. To me a GMT on a strap still looks like a Rolex. Many members here would spot it pretty quickly. But, the average public probably wouldn't either way.

Really like the look. Colours suit the watch perfectly, and looks very much like the Tudor gmt strap.

Very nice Dan. I bought a holes case Coke specifically to do this with, but it’s been languishing in the safe on its bracelet since RSC Service straight after purchase. I really must pull my finger out and try one of these combos.
