Anyone have any tips on how to get the wifey to agree to order another watch after you pulled a "2-watch-arrival" last week?

I got to say..I really do like the look of that gray Nato strap against the raw Bead blasted finish of the Ti, and the contrast of the black dial,

 

Also the brown leather in oagaspar,s pick gives it a very different look , it is amazing how the different straps alter the look so much...

 

It gives you a lot of use, with all the alternative strap options, very cool.

lug and bracelet screws are never tight for me but I use a watchmakers bracelet sizing/lug screw tool that allows me to use 1 hand instead of trying to hold the watch and 2 screwdrivers in my hands while screwing :D
Oscar could you gives us more info on this set up? Maybe others know how it works but i sure do not. How is the watch held and how is the screw head on the bottom held when you rotate the top screw head? thanks Ocrap.gif

the bottom is stationary bladed, and the top is your pivot point..the watch is held in that honeycomb plastic block..  settle over stationary blade..  pivot top..  bang, comes apart...  and you can produce alot more torque with the setup, so its not too stressfull.  at least that is how i would want it to be used haha. 

ive been eyeballing the "indian" version of that tool for a while. but always pass  because i can do well enough.  but it is becoming time where i shoud actually own it.

this is what i found and ordered. i think it is the same one Oscar was recommending. For the price i did not think you could go wrong. avoid one scratch and you have paid for it!ThumbsUp02.gif

hi everyone!

i've been been following the discussion with interest...just love the look of the Vortex - and wondering what you kids think a chronissimo would look like on it?  too much strap maybe?

and...i hope that i'm not getting off topic or breaking any forum rules - but i did see a neat home-made strap bar removal "tool" on another forum that might be of interest:

http://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=84714

all the best!

Welcome to 3T wilcat!...I'll put mine on a Chronissimo and post some pics hand6.gif...and good idea with the block of wood but a case vice would be a bit quicker :D

Very good tips. Thanks. I am ok/ok on stra changing but the things I've seen on this post are most helpful.;) I learned something new again today.

Wilcat, warm welcome to 3Thand6.gif

I would love to see how the Vortex looks on a Carbon Fiber strap.  Can someone snap a photo if you have that combo?

Here is my Vortex with a black stitchless strap with a square styled buckle from Savage Straps.
