Overseas - Black Rubber Strap on Silver Dial Dual-time

Hi all,

As some know, I have struggled with this decision for some time.  I was not sure how it would look.  I have always suspected that the Black Rubber would look so great with the "monochromatic" face of the dual-time.  Well, I visited the boutique in Miami this last week and, thanks to Judd (the watchmaker) and Caroline (the "watch consultant"), I was able to see it and then decide.  Once I saw it, the decision was easy.  What do you think?

Overseas - Black Rubber Strap on Silver Dial Dual-time


By the way, there were SO many other delightful temptations there.  Sorry I did not get any other photos.  I was too busy enjoying it to take photos.  Selfish, I guess.  Next time I will get some better photos, I promise.  Among other amazing pieces, they had a harmony chrono and also a Calibre 2253 - amazing.  They had the Traditionelle Openwoked Perpetual Calendar... so much amazingness.  Well worth the 2 hour drive for me.

the black rubber once but the contrast with the white dial had left me uncertain that time. Now it looks awesome to my eyes instead, excellent choice! yes

I think I want to buy one for me, your faultcheeky

Thanks Roberto

That was my concern too.  I saw someone who did it with the chrono over on the Purists and that renewed my interest.  When they put it together for me at the boutique, I was hooked.  I am glad to be your enabler!

Love it!

So many temptations there.  My wallet was lucky to escape with this minimal reduction in its contents.  I am really loving the Traditionelle Chrono and the (of course) still the bi-retro.  They had them both, but neither in white gold, so that probably saved me.

IMHO, Overseas' rubber strap is most comfortable strap EVER cool

I was very surprised to discover this personally and the only reason why I'm wearing OS on bracelet now is what I rare wear any black accessories during Spring/Summer time. 

I agree that it is very comfortable

I remain surprised how comfortable the bracelet is though.  I will probably switch it fairly often (fortunately, I have the tools).  If that metal bracelet weren't so amazing looking, I would likely leave the rubber on more.  We will see.

Looks as we're in same boat laugh I also currently switching my bracelet with rubber strap only. I even bought additional brown alligator strap for OS but later I've found what:

  1. Rubber strap is more comfortable and
  2. Bracelet is most versatile (could be used with black or brown accessories with white metal furniture)

So it'll be interesting to hear your impressions later smiley It'll be even more interesting as I've bought bracelet for my strap only OS DeepStreem version while you purchased rubber strap for your bracelet-only OS DT.

This is what I've found with my watches and is the only drawback to my 49140 (other thread here on The Hour Lounge).  Bracelets these days are very comfortable and go with anything.  But when I'm not wearing a bracelet, rubber is my choice, especially for summer months. Nothing beats it really.  So even though leather doesn't get much love from me now, I do like its elegance and look in the fall/winter months.

Two hours at the wheel - the result certainly delivers!...

Jamie, I'm well impressed with the new bracelet choice. The colour combinations have a certainly charm and presence.

Clearly, Judd and Caroline looked after you well, thus the decision making process was made that much easier.

You've caught some very nice photographs too - well done!

Best wishes

I'm still waiting for a blue dial on a dual time but this is a very nice looking watch!

I may change my mind.


Nice choice, Jamie

I like the rubber strap, though I prefer the grey leather with the grey dial of my dual time.

That sounds great-looking

I don't think I've seen a picture of that - yours in particular or that combo at all. I'd love to see it. Next time I'm in the city, I should let you know so I can see a watch or two in your collection in the metal.
