New straps came in today. One with contrasting stitching and one with matching. I am really liking the rios1931, and think once it breaks in a little, it will be a keeper. I also kinda went with a leather color that is going to match my belt and shoes at my upcoming wedding. Not sure which watch yet, but the strap is a perfect match!!(phone camera doesn't capture it thoughImage)

Big fan of Rios bands...great quality and they feel substantial. I like the contrasting stitch with the Omega...very nice.

As you approach "the day" you will undoubtedly receive a lot of advice. One thing I can say is that for her it will be a wonderful and also crazy and somewhat stressful day. I sensed this with my bride and it was important for me to connect with her while she was getting ready to help calm her nerves and make it the best day for her... even though we couldn't see each other before the procession. With my wife I sent one of the flower children to her dressing room with a present which was a small box filled with little notes telling her all the reasons I love her. Now 12 years later it is still her favorite memory from the day.

My advice: Don't miss the opportunity to do something special on the day for the future Mrs Rubb. She won't notice your watch, but she will definitely appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Dude. This may be the best advice I have gotten. Seriously, that was a great move!!! While I am not gonna copy the idea exactly, you have got the wheels turning in my head. What a great idea!!
