Picked up a new strap from Panatime this past friday for the Lum-tec M3. Honey crocodile with a double deployant. I'll try to take some pictures tonight. I think it's beautiful.

No need. That Stowa is pure class.

Muhle Glashutte makes one like that for comparable money, but I like yours better.

There are replica sites all over the 'net...Google them.

But honestly, you can scour the sales corners on Watchuseek and Timezone...you can find what you want at a decent price. If you can't afford it, save save save...and buy a watch you'll keep for life. The PO is an absolutely sweet piece.

That's right - no point of getting a replica watch unless your main purpose is just to "pretend" you own one, instead of because you really like it and appreciate the quality.
Just save and go used.

I am one of those people who always needs to know what time it is since most of my day is timed out with me needing to be multiple places at multiple times and punctuality is key. Just not going to carry a big cell phone in my pocket when I have a purse.

My mechanical watch is the only one that hasn't died on me and to a certain extent it does show my personality. Though as a female, I have many accessories. Three pieces of jewelry on me are constant : Pearl Necklace, 8ct Garnet Filigree ring, and my Watch. If any of those are missing, I feel a bit lost though neither is as bad as forgetting my watch.

Everybody needs at least "16 pieces of Flair"

Like those "Nomos" alot, but at 2X or 3X it's just too much for me

Part of my collection. Nothing especially rare or exotic, but loved by me.

A custom sterile Luminor homage with ETA 6497 movement, on a Heroic strap:

A couple of modded Seiko 7S26 automatics:

And a dose of vintage love.

Late '40s Seamaster bumper automatic, refinished dial:

You can get the basic one for 1000 euro. As far as I know the movement is also in-house, maybe that's why they are more expensive.
