wow i love that strap, mixing well in the colour scheme.

Im thinking on a better strap on my K, but i might stick with the stock a little longer.

im fixing on a kevlar style strap (or even a kevlar strap) with red stitching or grey stitching.

Talking about Vostok I was wondering if you guys would recommended it. I am currently n the market for an upgrade from my fossil watch. I saw this one on amazon and I liked it http://www.amazon.com/Vostok-Europe-Gaz-Limo-Automatic-Watch-5602059/dp/B00C27F6OY/ref=sr_1_16?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1371084265&sr=1-16&keywords=vostok its in my price range and I think it looks great. It has a unique design and even though I an more of a stainless steel bracelet person I think it wears it well. However I am a huge fan of the nylon straps. Do you guys feel like I could pull it off with this watch?

Cool, i (i would say) upgraded from my Fossil Blue BQ-9165 watch to my Vostok Komandirskie 431186.

Its by your personal preference.
but would you wear it as a sport or a casual? or anything?

as a beater or as a occasional piece.

its all up to you.

I would like to get a snazzy VE watch myself.
keep note of course, VE watches are a subcompany of Vostok which they're made in Lithuania just with Russian Vostok movements.

im sure you are aware of that,

final note: I say go for it! if you think it would really suit your fancy then feel free! The world is your oyster (sortof)

I probably will end up getting this watch sometime soon because this is a watch I like and I'm very picky and as much as I like sport watches I think this bridges the gap between the two nicely.

However I was still wondering if I could get away with a nylon/NATO band with this. I love the look and I feel that they are in right now.

Anyway if I do get it ill post some pics as soon as it arrives. And I am also excited that this would be my first automatic watch!

Those VE's look great on a NATO. I personally prefer the more robust looking ones though:

anyone compared the new and old version of Seiko Monster?  I'm looking for one and lean toward the original version.

Thanks, do you know if that is out yet?

post #7271 of 8073

From what I understand, the new Monsters are pretty much identical to the old ones to the exception of a movement that hacks and winds. This is a rather big deal. The Monster was legendary for being a solid and durable timepiece and exceptionally functional as a diver. 

The hack function (which simply means that the second hand stops when the crown is pulled out) allows you to synchronize it to a centralized, more accurate time source or to other watches in a precise manner. Winding refers to the ability to wind the movement via the crown rather than just relying on the automatic movement to wind it. Higher end Swiss automatic watches have for the most part had this ability for some time, so it represents a major milestone for Seiko automatics.
Otherwise from what I've heard, they're just as durable and reliable as they've been in the past. They have altered the color schemes a bit, also.

The crown is also different on the new model. It is a knurled crown.

I got one of these late last week and it's great (the 30% off and another watch for "free" didn't hurt either). I love the little window on the face. This is a photo from their website.

Got NATO Straps for my Vostok Komandirskie.
Leather is not the most comfortable in the East Coast American Summer Heat!

In Brown And Black, i thought Brown was going to be darker, but it looks kinda weird, if the dial of my watch was white then that would be different but it look weird to me.

Got these Straps from Clockwork Synergy LLC of Amazon, and they are decent quality straps i must say.

That NATO strap is a beauty! 

 

I think I'll chime in with my beloved:

 

 

AppleMark

 

 

Omega Planet Ocean XL (600m) Ceramic bezel, Steel case, Sapphire case back, rubber strap with orange stitching. The 8500 movement with the Si-14 spring is a technical achievement; really great timepiece! I love it beyond words. Do excuse the hack-job of an image... The camera on the back of my iPhone 4 is shot, so I took it with the front-facing, and flipped it.
