Thanks guys. I also got a set of snowflake hands for when the urge strikes to switch it out. This one has the Soprod movement in it and it's an extremely smooth motion. My next order has the seagull movement just to try it out. I have a 5517 on order....unless there is someone who is tired of theirs??? . My other thought for a strap is a watchadoo. Like Lex said...so many ideas, so little time. By the way,Lex, hanks for your help with the bracelet ideas, and great dial thoughts.
