Right on "kpjimmy" -- I'm really enjoying the AV2 -- Lovin' the BOR combo - I wish they hadn't dropped the bronzo so close to this release. A glut of great watches coming to market. I can't deal 😩 😃
It looks good on bor, but isn't the new bracelet it came on an excellent bracelet
Bronze with blue tropic or single pass nato. A denim strap, or a MN style strap. I know hardware may be an issue with natos and MN straps. I used to pair pvd hardware with bronze watches.It looks good on bor, but isn't the new bracelet it came on an excellent bracelet
that they improved from the original avalon?
In theory, what strap would look best on the avalon blue bronze?
I don't think the black does it any favors, but maybe a brown leather
Just curious what bronze case would go with, that would look awesome...
even though I'm probably sitting this one out.
Hey "WN600" -- You're at again. "Streaming consciousness" You could buy this Steinhart & have a watchmaker swap the hands for you, then flip the watch you're not keeping. Steiny w/ snowflakesmatching blue fkm rubber, maybe...or tropic, but those aren't really THAT nice looking, imo.
a light, reddish brown leather strap might look good on the bronze and blue dial.
I don't know...which is why I'm asking.
BUT it's a real turn-off not having a great strap option that comes with it already with no work or hassle...though I'm sure Nodus would let one get it on one of their leather straps instead of coming with the black strap shown...that DOESN'T match or look good at all, imo.
While I'm on a stream of consciousness, does anyone know how to get
"snowflake" Tudor style hands, silver bordered, with BGW9 lume, that works with
a Sellita movement? I am thinking of getting snowflake hands to replace the
hour, minute, and second hands on this Steinhart GMT (and leave the GMT hand in place):
You would think it would be easy to find, but it isn't. Either they are for Seiko movements, have a different color border than silver, or are a different kind of lume.

I personally would say a slight step up from bartons.can anyone comment on the Nodus Hybrid "TecTuff" rubber straps? They look sweet and curious if they are a "step up" from a barton hybrid strap. They are cheaper than the CW hybrid straps and trying to gauge if they are worth checking out. thanks!
The Nodus "TecTuff" is a nice strap in as much as it's very pliable, and the material it's made of is very aquatic 🙃can anyone comment on the Nodus Hybrid "TecTuff" rubber straps?

Thanks for the thorough response. Much appreciated. I decided to pick up the Nodus strapThe Nodus "TecTuff" is a nice strap in as much as it's very pliable, and the material it's made of is very aquatic 🙃
I prefer the CW hybrid strap as it's a bit more substantial, and it doesn't taper. The CW seems to have 2 very different materials top & bottom, more fabric like top, and rubber bottom. What I didn't like about the CW is it took me a while to get it to break in and fit comfortably. Had it rolled and rubber banded for weeks 😀
The "TecTuff" is a step up from Barton, but the TecTuff is a crowned strap, meaning it's height is in the center for part of the length near the lug end then flattens out. The taper is too much IMHO and I'm not sure it's the best choice for the heft of the Avalon vs other Nodus offerings, which I think it may be better suited.
