recently bought a preowned pam, wanted to look for straps. realise the straps available locally are either extremely trashy or extremely expensive.

anyone has a good place to recommend???

seen in some of the past threads mentioning strapfreak from indonesia. the very fact that their rupiah and usd prices is about 100 sgd difference annoys me. definitely not gonna be a caitao for this. hahaha

Yes pre owned. Understanable as it is 2007 model which I bought from my dad. I will do minor touch up to it. I think the scratches makes the watch have more ‘story’ and sentimental especially since from my dad.

Yes. Thereabouts. Bought it off my dad. He wanted to pass on to me but I felt bad.

By the way, how much is it to replace the watch crystal with cyclops? Is it advisable? Or will the value drop? Sorry newbie here.

You shouldn't feel bad.. passing of watch generation-to-generation is not exclusive to Patek

Can always 'make it up' to your dad many other ways.

My 2 cents la..
