And Elvis probably would have had one of those gold nugget encrusted Accutrons too. 🤩

Darn, and I needed a tv case. That would be so cool to own one of Elvis's accutrons.

I bet he did, can you imagine all the watches he owned. I need to visit Graceland before I die.

I can't for the life of me find this pic (now a bad photobucket pic) I had found in this thread a couple years ago of a 1963 Astro he wore. From reading my old post, it was a good pic and interesting Astro. Maybe somebody can find it again.

I searched google images for quite a bit last night and could not find anymore pics of Elvis's Astronaut, but always fun looking through old photos of the past. Photo bucket sure makes a mess of forums :(

The more I see it the more it's actually growing on me. This would certainly be the strap to use if you had an Astronaut without a bracelet.

You should give one a try, I'm finding it very comfortable to wear and it give these vintage watches some masculinity or beef. Think I'm going to order some more of these straps from Freddie Matara for a few of my watches is various styles and sizes, maybe a 2" wide one next. These are custom and the leather is premium and soft, he does beautiful work.
