Love it. Fits perfectly on the wrist. It's a nice go between watch for me. The three watches I wear most often are the Speedmaster, the Aquatimer and the B&R. The Speedmaster is nice and light, not too big and I can blend it in with almost any outfit. The Aquatimer is huge and heavy (especially with the mesh bracelet). It always gets comments and it can only really be worn in more casual settings.

The B&R is right in that sweet spot. Looks and feels a little bigger than the Speedmaster, but not too big that it doesn't look/feel right. It's subtle without being boring. Fits the wrist just right. I also love that it has a date window (the Speedmaster does not).

I'm really happy with it. I have no intention of ever wanting to sell it

Here is a pic of my collection ... I'm pretty happy with every piece. Though I can't remember the last time I've worn the Hamilton Open Heart or the Oris (though I don't have a desire to part with them).

I don't remember. I bought it off of Amazon a couple of years ago. I can check the case when I get home and let you know. It's served me well and I would recommend it. Didn't cost much either

Edit: Found it in my order history on amazon. Looks like they don't sell that particular one anymore, but I'm sure there is an updated version

Finally took the bracelet off of the Black Bay and put the Tudor NATO on. First NATO that I really like. Going to wear it like this for a while and put the bracelet back on my Ball.

I set the seconds chrono hand as the date. i.e. today is the 12th, so the seconds chrono is on the 12th minute marker.

On another topic... I really wish Omega's bracelet was as nice as Rolex. The Omega end links adds a bit of height to the watch. It protrudes a mm or two before it meets the start of the bracelet. Where the Rolex bracelet starts right near the end of the lug.

I got my strapcode super oyster bracelet today. It has SKX007 end links on it but they fit the SNZH case almost perfectly.

It really transformed the watch to go from the cheap folded bracelet to this. I originally bought it for my SKX but I REALLY like the jubilee, so I kept the order and put it on the SNZH when it came in.

I like the Everest system. But I actually don't mind the gap when wearing a leather band. As I stated before, I usually prefer leather straps but love bracelets when it comes to Rolex. The fit on Rolex bracelets are fantastic!

I agree. The newer Rolex style bracelets are incredible and fit very comfortably. I don't mind the gap either, but the Everest endlink system is really nice in person and provides a unique look that I'm really digging right now. Plus, leather is a nice change. Makes it feel like a whole new watch.

Drtalon?

I generally have bracelets, but the Orient bracelet is amazing. I'm sold.

As an alternative to buying adapters or settling with the gap, Hirsch makes some nice curved-end leather straps in a variety of different colors and widths. I just picked up a couple for my Speedy and the curved-ends follow the contour of the case pretty nicely. Possibly not as nice as those Everest endlinks, but another solution none the less. I'll probably toss one on my Explorer II to see how well it matches up.

My first non-cartoon character watch was a Casio A158W-1. I just might order a F91W-1 after I saw your post
