Nice! That one caught my eye (with the full-lume dial), the 39mm case seems kind of small to me though.Bought this slightly used Archimede Outdoor Protect 39. It just arrived this afternoon. Took out a couple of links in the bracelet, and it fits fine. Very, very happy with it so far. The picture makes it look bigger than it is, but it fits very comfortably on my 6.5" wrist.

That is one sharp watch my friend. Stunning!
Oh yeah, it's one of the best kept secrets in the mechanical watch world. And possibly the most affordable way of getting into an ETA movement (at least it was at the time). I love the big display, the dependability and ruggedness.I LOVE the Hamilton Khaki. It may be my ultimate "grail watch". The difficulty is choosing which variety.
First off, glad you're enjoying your new strap! I recently have gone down the strap rabbit hole as well. It's amazing how much a good/different strap can change your watch.I noticed that another member had purchased an illegal Amazon knock-off (no doubt unbeknownst to him). But as that was a "one size fits all" strap, I was pleased to have ordered from Erika (albeit five times the cost of my favorite watch that's wearing it ). (Erika's straps are available in every wrist size you can think of, at 5mm intervals.)
Thank you.First off, glad you're enjoying your new strap!

Erica's MN™ Straps are a patented design.I'm curious though...what makes you believe the amazon strap is "illegal"?
The footer on Erika's web pages say:@Cal there are several makers that make MN type straps, not sure EO has a patent on her design but the material and workmanship of her straps are top notch...
I have a few “copycat” MN straps on watches of much lesser value and visually they look the same but after handling them the differences are very clear.
