  3. Why I love drilled lugs and screw-in bars.

    Public Forum
    After seeing Chris' (CGSshorty) 103 LE on canvas, I knew mine was going to wear something similar. I purchased three cheapy canvas straps in orange, navy blue, and gray just to try which one I think would work the best. All three complemented the watch, but gray was the winner. The blue...
