///M wristwatch w/ new straps

Check out my ballin' new timepiece. BMW M watch that I purchased at the Welt (using my 10 Euro credit). Then I found a Nato strap to match my M3 (SS) and another with the actual ///M colors. Also pictured is the strap that came with it, I guess they are going for a carbon fiber look, but I just don't like the feel of a leather strap. (sorry for the huge pictures, not sure how to size on the forum, help sizing would be appreciated)

One of my vices...watches...but have yet to purchase any M specific apparel or accessories other than what was given to me as a gift from my local dealer.

As far as the watch...the Ronda Quartz movement is a good one at this price point...it would have been a better deal with sapphire crystal and/or an entry automatic movement.

Regardless...I like the M colored NATO strap.

How does that watch look on the wrist with the nato?

I have a bunch of nato straps but I always end up taking them off and replacing them with traditional straps.

(I love them too) A used Panerai is within reach. I just have to hide it from my wife.

Lol...I enjoyed the read. If you have the opportunity to get the Panerai...go for it...that's on the wish list...in the meantime, I will wear my assh#lish Omega Planet Ocean...a wedding gift from the wife...

Thank you for the inclusion.

So, totally NOT a Breitling guy, and yes, I would be a watch snob "asshole", but what about the Breitling Tourbillion they are putting in the Bentayaga (or whatever that beast is called). I would be all over a nice, subtly branded high-ish end mechanical watch. There are some special Jag and Aston Martin maechanical watches with door unlock and engine start capabilities. Kind of a cool idea.

I would be ok going the complete other direction with a custom UI for iWatch or other wearable tech.

Being able to summon my F80 by speaking into watch (batman style!) would be awesome
