The picture above says it all. The SBDC013 is now on the original strap designed for the limited edition SBDC015 and it’s on a timegrapher showing good accuracy.
As mentioned in an earlier post, I have the leather strap (shown below) on order.
It arrived last week in an envelope that says “component within”.
Inside the envelop is the bund style leather strap in plastic wrapper.
This is what you get when you put the three-piece strap in place.
Comparing it to the strap on the SBDC011, I notice a difference on the short end. The brown strap has two keepers, one fixed and one movable. The black strap has only one keeper and from the stitching, I can see that it was not designed to have a fixed keeper.
The strap comes with a black buckle.
The SBDC013 looks cool on the bund strap but does not fit under the sleeve when I wear it to work.
So, I decided to remove the backing.
Both Fieldmasters side by side.
I visited Big Time today and put the SBDC013 face up on their new timegrapher. The watch started at +1s per day and settled down quickly to 0s per day. What a surprise.
