    You're actually right the reaction was fair, and based on taste. I love both forums for that. Its hard to find openly hostile members. I don't post much, but I really do like both.

    As per the pattern, yeah that was a choice. Probably not a good one. Im still working on it.

    Hi geo,

    No I wasn't directly trying to sell it - truth is its the only 20mm watch I have and I was looking for feedback/advice.

    Truth is I have the same issue with my Alaska. Hard to find a strap that really works for it. I've tried a jean rousseau green ostrich - which gives it a nice "british racing green" vibe to it. The other one I usually wear is a black rubber with white stitching bought in that boutique watch store in reykjavik. I didn't get a bracelet with the watch when I bought it (aftermarket) - so can't really say

    I meant sell the 'idea'.. as some people have said a cam watchstrap is not for them..me neither... But to try out a cam strap idea.. its not good on a white faced dial...kind of defeats the object of cam :-)

    Reminds me of when I wanted to try out for the All Arms Commando Course at Plymouth.. I was told I needed to cam up my soap dish and toothbrush, boot brushes etc etc etc...seriously if the enemy is close enough to see you brushing your teeth.. then cam is a bit too late in my opinion ..same as cam on a watch strap! ;-)

    the main problem with most types of camo is that they rarely look right over a small area..
