Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

Straton, Daily Driver Chronograph; a/k/a the Red Panda

Friday's WOTD selection, is the Straton, Daily Driver - Orange, I watch I've dubbed the "Red Panda". This was my first experience with the Straton brand, and I figured it would be a good way to introduce myself to the Straton Watch Company brand, without diving-in head-first, to some of their pricier timepieces featuring the Valjoux, chronograph movements.

Excellent mix of dial color, sub-dial color, and build engineering makes this a solid timepiece; this Daily Driver could easily join any watch rotation as a daily wearer. The Red Panda originally shipped on a high-quality bracelet, but this look was just begging for a racing strap. My choice of strap, a Straton Watch Co., perforated racing strap, with Orange contrast stitching, of course.

Further coordinating the look of this racer, I've accessorized the Red Panda today, with a custom-crafted bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo. My Wrist-Game today, sure to take the pole position and checkered flag!
