Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

WOTD wrist-shot of the Straton, Daily Driver Chronograph.  Paired with a custom-crafted bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo.
Straton, Daily Driver Chronograph; a/k/a the Red Panda

Wednesday, has me racing through the day, while enjoying the beauty of the Straton, Daily Driver - Orange, a watch I've affectionately dubbed, "The Red Panda".

The smart engineering and design-build of the Daily Driver, utilizes and ultra-thin Tachymeter-Scale bezel, and flush chapter ring, which affords the beautiful Orange dial plenty of real estate. The burnt Orange dial color is more muted than the Orange you'll see used on most watches, but I think it's the perfect shade for a racing chronograph. The contrast of the Black sub-dials, and Black on White date window, offers the perfect dial presentation. Capping this racer off, with a perforated, Straton, leather racing strap, with perfectly matched, Orange contrast stitching; the bracelet that the Daily Driver shipped on is fantastic, but the leather racing strap, takes this piece to the finish line.

Matching the Daily Driver today, with a custom-made, beaded bracelet, crafted by Beads By Gonzo, making my Wrist-Game today, race ready, and definitely rolling in the fast lane!
