Watch of the day (WOTD)

Updated: May 10, 2020

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

Monday's wrist-check, finds me wearing the Straton Watch Company, Daily Driver, a watch that I've dubbed the "Red Panda". This is another great racing chronograph that I absolutely love. There are versions of this piece, that sports the more traditional racing stripe-clad dial, but this Panda version, albeit in a more unconventional color, is everything!

The slim bezel profile, with tachymeter scale, affords the dial a larger dial footprint. The burnt orange dial of the Daily Driver, provides the perfect canvas, and backdrop, to contrast the index markers and sub-dials. A great design element, having the chapter ring elevated from the dial, in stadium fashion, allowing an ultra-clean dial presentation.

For the perfect addition to the Daily Driver, I chose a perforated, leather racing strap, with color-matched contrast stitching, by Straton Watch Company, which really finishes the racing look of this timepiece. My Wrist-Game today, in pole position, to capture the checkered flag.
