Why Wear a Watch When You Have a Phone?

A mobile phone is a stunning achievement in technology, but for most, it does little to further the greater human experience. They are effective devices for communicating, but they’re also a gateway to becoming addicted to fleeting, wasteful distractions. Wearing a wristwatch on the other hand,…

"A wristwatch reminds us that we are always running out of paper and ink."

I agree whole-heartedly. Plus a watch is sexy. A mobile phone is NOT.

Cartier Tank Louis Cartier XL CPCP…I’m in love. THE Holy Grail as far as modern watches are concerned for me. 

SEXY!

The downside of working with watch nerds and collectors…it rubs off.

Take the bracelet off of a Rolex Date or Datejust and replace it with a leather strap…and you get a pretty nice watch.

Well, it’s not a honey ostrich-grain, but a similar color genuine alligator strap (made in USA too.) It’s a Hadley-Roma MS812, and I can’t find any info about it online anywhere, not even their catalog. I believe this one is NOS, and the price was right ($39.99 US + tax.) 
It’s a regular size, and I had to change the buckle to a gold one to match the watch (it came with a silver buckle.) The padding and the matte finish make it look a little sportier IMHO. This one is back to daily driver status.  Did I need another watch strap? Not really. I think we all know how THAT goes! I have to remind myself not to say that word, “definitely.” Usually it proves contrary to what I wanted in the first place.

I find this mildly arousing.

Definitely the small one…and the bracelet against it is a sexy look too.

I prefer models a little newer, but I love the well-loved black leather strap too.
