there are a number of looky looky options too, if you want to try before you buy.
I think I have a non-B tropic 22mm at home somewhere on a standard buckle but it will give you the idea.

Got some money into my account last night......gone now!

Kids running around me, I think I just wanted to feel in control if only for 1 second. Punched in a bid in the last seconds of an eBay auction this arvo.

I think Brucy may understand this one. The seiko fleiger style from last week he owns too gave me a real appreciation for legibility.

Brucy. My srpb07 ended up on an olive NATO. So so comfortable.

Another Sinner on the forum :) You have to look hard to beat the legibility of that dial. Nice catch :thumbup:

Thanks captainscarlet.

I am sure it is going to be incredibly versatile.

I had to stop the run of Seiko purchases somehow.

Really I should be saving for something more special, then again, adding a Sinn is always special right?

Here's another pic.

That’s a very nice 556I Sarbie, need a wrist shot! I was seriously considering one of these too but I fear the 38mm will be lost on my 9” wrists... good choice on the Olive NATO for the SRPB, I have an Olive canvas for mine which I think works well

As John said earlier you get to know what you like and the pilot style legibility is something I’ve come to appreciate and more importantly enjoy :)

All I need is someone to paint the second hand on my SRPB red so it Rangers’ it up a bit ;)

There was something about how beaten up this one is I found endearing but I'm with you coach....keeping my eyes out for a good one too. So long as it isn't real pricey.

The way the split second hand screams around the sub dial is fun.
