Are you ready for salmon leather watch straps?
more_vert
Think you've tried every kind of watch strap around? Done the cow hide and calf and fetal calf leather? The goat and alligator straps, as well as the fake alligator straps made from goat leather? The steel and titanium and brass and bronze and depleted uranium (Arnold Schwarzenegger watch line only) bracelets? Nylon, perlon, orlon. NATOs and ZULUs and ALFAs and ECHOs and KILOs and LIMAs and XRAYs?
There's a watch band that you've never tried: The Meva "hangemachte uhrenarmbänder" strap in salmon leather.

You thought salmon was a name for pink? Here's the salmon green strap:

And a brown version that looks a little closer to that strip that you leave on your plate after a seafood dinner:

And here's one from "chicken leather":

"Oh wow, your watch looks sooooo expensive!"
"Yeah, baby, it's a little six-digit Audemars Piguet I picked up as a present for myself after my last IPO. And check out the strap, 140 dollars worth of genuine chicken skin."
"Uh ... Okay."
Persuing the Meva website will also reveal straps made of ammo bags (natch), soccer balls, and lederhosen (but no leather hernia trusses yet), as well as leathers from shark, marine toad, python, lizard, and other endangered and extinct species.

These really taste good when deep fried, my favorite snack. I've had pig skin strap but not chicken strap.

This somehow reminds me of the Dschinghis Khan non-singing dancer guy.

When you live outside the United States you realize that there are two pop music markets, the U.S. and everywhere else. These songs were absolutely huge hits everywhere in the world, except the U.S., in 1979. The first one won the Eurovision contest.
This is a cover by a Japanese idol group:

And a Korean cover:

And a North Korean cover of both the hits:

The entire French yé-yé genre was popular worldwide (including Canada to a certain extent) and shows up constantly in Japanese television commercials, but is unknown in the U.S.
Even in classical music this phenomenon exists, as with this German pianist, who seems to be well known in Europe and Asia,





but not the U.S.:

I've never heard Moskau but now I'm going to be whistling and singing two of the only English words I could make out all day long (Moscow and caviar).

Mako XL
So I'm looking to get by first watch. I like the look of the mako xl (more than the mako or ray). My wrist is only 6. 25" but does it matter if I like it? Any alternatives?

FARER Watches?
I'm a recent "watch lover". My first two watches I got through the first Filippo Loreti Kickstarter campaign. I was quite happy with them but after doing some reading I now understand that they were just a successful marketing campaign, similar to Beats headphones. My most recent watch is the Seiko Presage Cocktail SRPB43J1, which I'm very happy with. Currently I'm looking for my next buy and last night I stumbled onto FARER. I think some of their models look amazing, specially the Ponting, Hopewell, and Barnato II. Does anybody have any experience or knowledge about this brand? Or possibly know about any similar watches I should check out? I would be interested to see FARER or something similar on Massdrop. https://eur.farer.com/products/ FARER Ponting - https://eur.farer.com/products/ponting [image] FARER Hopewell - https://eur.farer.com/products/hopewell [image] FARER Barnato II - https://eur.farer.com/collections/g-m-t-collection/products/barnato [image]

Reasonably priced leather watch straps?
I'm in search of a quality 22mm leather strap for my Glycine Combat Sub. Most places online I've found charge around $100. That's a little out of my price range. Anybody know a solid brand/site to get a strap for around $50?
