Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

For my hump-day selection, I opted for the Straton Watch Company, Daily Driver. As a racing chronograph, the styling is a bit different than the other racers within my collection; and that's a positive.

The Orange dial, contrasted against Black chronograph sub-dials, and Orange chrono sub-dial hands, provides a striking visual contrast. This model has other variations with traditional racing stripes on the dial, but I much rather prefer the solid Orange dial on this model. A bit of a slimmer Tachymeter scale design on the bezel, allows for a larger dial footprint, affording a maximum showcase of the fantastic dial; with the dial, having a subtle radiance and sunburst look to it.

Another aspect of this particular look that I love, was my decision to add the perforated, leather, Straton racing strap. I feel the strap definitely adds a sportier edge to this timepiece, versus the original bracelet.

Drafting the Daily Driver today, is a custom bracelet selection, designed by Beads By Gonzo, serving as the perfect travelling companion, and complement, to this Orange-dialed racer!
