WIS HoneymoonWIS Honeymoon falling again for my Longines Chrono

Well I had a love hate relationship with that watch for about 25 years laughing
Could never find the right band for it... the original was a blue shark band that is still stiff as wood after all that time and me trying to to shape it, soften it, etc.
Steel bracelet didnt work with the white dial. I tried other leather and carbon with little success. Played with nylon a few weeks ago and it was OK but not on par really with the style of the watch.
Then doing some new year cleaning, I found a stash of leather bands that I tried or replaced over the years... that black one caught my eyes... thick, shoft, bendable, tried it on and it works great IMO. I was even able to fit the original Longines buckle on it Thumbs Up
I love it!

The watch looks great and it also have a massive case back.

The strap looks to be very comfortable and looks very good on that watch.Thumbs up!

That's a great watch! I like the black strap. I also think white stitching on it would look good. (n/t)

Hey JP if that one is going to continue to be a problem you can send it to me. Laughing (n/t)

Very nice combo, but you could lash that watch to your wrist with frayed rope and it would still look good. wink (n/t)

Nice start, but I think some white stitching is definitely in order. (n/t)

Like the black band how about one with white piping or a distressed brown leather
