moved out a couple of my watches this month (sadly, but necessary).

Thinking about doing something special...

Lum-Tec M45


Shiraz Red Strap


I like this matchup, what do you guys think?

BTW - I have a friend referral code that can be used once only, extra 5% off entire purchase. I haven't had anyone to send it to yet, so... If anyone is interested, let me know, I will PM u the code.

Where are you going to look for custom straps? I like that strap, just unsure on the M45, because its black and white dial. Might just be me though.

I've always been a firm believer of matching my belt, shoes and watch straps...so I personally wouldn't buy a red strap as I don't own a red belt. But, I guess it could go well with a black/grey belt and coordinating shoe's. It would certainly be a different look.

^im kinda the same way, but don't match my belt since I only have black belts, but I do match it with shoes and colors on my shirt.

But I do think that the watch has to have some of the same color on the dial as on the strap, otherwise it doesn't make sense. Just my .02

I figure it would be more of a casual daily watch, so I'd be rocking jeans and a t-shirt with it.

I like the POP of colour that the red gives to set off an outfit.

I definitely concur with the matching shoes and belt - but that would be more of a suit attire with brown / black.

thats my watch! (like actually)

the pictures dont really do the brushed finish justice.

the brushed really goes well with a grey.

hey ercchry, is that actually your grey watch in the photo?

if so, it looks AWSOME!

what do u think of the red strap combo?

09-02-2012, 04:32 PM
Yeah, they shot it before they shipped it out. Have you thought about the destroy strap? I think these watches look great with more of a rustic/vintage strap. If you are set on red I would go more towards a brownish/rust colour over a brighter red

love the photos btw

i am considering the destroy strap as well, thx for the input!

i will let u guys now. hope they do a shoot on my watch as well...

So where are you getting that strap from?

Wristweapon has it listed under their M Automatic section...however I find it kinda pricey at $95.00. But there is no denying it's a nice strap.

The red one is sweet no doubt, I don't think its a Lum-Tec strap though, I don't see it on their site.

i saw the red strap on their Facebook page, it said coming soon.

orange face with this strap matches pretty well too.
