I'm just not ready to admit that this watch is too big for me.
A quick bit of rough prototyping. That suede is soo warm and soft (my winter watch? haha), but I don't know how it'll hold up if I break a sweat.
A hybrid nato strap, if you will. If I want to stick with this concept, I'll have to lengthen the middle portion so that the rest of the strap conforms to my wrist (the lugs hold the pins pretty high) and then sew up most of the two cuts so it all keeps shape. Otherwise I could figure out a way to hold the watch down without such cuts.
Closer to what I'm getting at (I folded the side bits). Still need to come up with a simple closure.
Don't hold your breath, folks; I haven't lost my job, and my motivation for personal projects is ever an ebb and flow kind of thing.
p.s. Why does it take five clicks to upload a stinkin' picture?

(Btw that's my Bertucci A2-T, doesn't go out often due to the quarantine haha)

Two years later, in 2013, Omega introduced the long-expected Seamaster Planet Ocean GMT. We’re going to review the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m GMT Goodplanet for you today.
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean GMT (“PO-GMT” for short), is available in the familiar color codes of the Planet Ocean, with a black dial and silver/white markers and hands. Only the tip of the GMT hand and the word “GMT” on the dial are in orange.
