NICE!!!Since you have it in the flesh, is the strap color dark..medium..or light brown and are the rivits "brushed steel" to match the XVI case? Kinda hard to tell from pic's. Finally... do you really like the black dial/brown strap mix?Great to hear from another Mark XVI fan out there...I think it's just a perfect understated watch and your creative mix gives it a nice bonus while keeping it classic with a clean design. GOOD EYE !!AndyCan anyone comment on my questions regarding the BP "Son" strap? I would like to change my existing strap.Thanks for any input....Andy

shing Wrote:Andy, it may be easier for forumers to comment if your (very valid) question was started as a new discussion. I think your question essentially revolves around how a ref 3255 strap will look, and will feel, on your Mark XVI.I have searched and there's not much previous discussion of this, although you may wish to consult these two posts:I'D LIKE TO CHANGE THE LOOK OF MY MKXVCHANGE MY IWC STRAPin terms of strap colours, these two sites may assist for comparison (I don't find an exact on-spot answer), although the surest way I believe is for an authorized dealer to show them to you.you might also want to drop a note to the forum members who have walked through this issue before. personally I don't have a Mark series, but Andrew's pic and your pointing out this issue has given me new food for though. you (and Michael) also made me discover the Bergeron spring bar tool, so thanks for that :)
