I'm struggling to get it out using standard tools without risking scratches.
Try a toothpick as well to get the lint out.

I cut up an old nato I had and made it a single pass. I even shortened it a little so it doesn't have the sloppy fold over at the end. So much more comfortable than a normal nato.

Love Sinn. I was in their flagship store in Frankfurt several years ago and regret not buying one. They were much cheaper there than online. My flight out was at like 4 am before the VAT refund office was open at the airport, and it killed me that I would have to pay the 19% tax, so I passed.

I am so happy with it. Its the perfect GADA watch. I got it to scratch my itch for an Explorer and now I think I like it better than an explorer. Plus it looks great on every strap I have tried, I have it on a cheap leather strap today.

I wonder how many here have seen and enjoy this connection. Both cars and watches work for me for these same reasons.

Wearing my LeJour chrono today. This is the watch I was wearing when my twins were born. Last night my wife and I went out for our anniversary and a couple of drinks since my parents were watching the kids. I looked over while we were at the bar and asked my wife why she was wearing my watch.

Untitled by Nick Wood, on Flickr

She said, "I have been waiting for you to say something." She took handed me the watch and said, "look at the back."

She had the case back engraved with the birth times of our twins. I had planned on doing this when I had it serviced next. I was completely surprised.
