Just my opinion....I think the Raven V would look best on the vintage oyster mentioned by Steve.

There is a Super Oyster 2A out there that fits great on my Seiko 399K (square indeces) and my imagination is running on this.

Steve....you might wanna check it out. If lugs width is 22 and that case is as it is, fit would I think, be almost custom-made. Chris (Stew77) has a 399K, too, and I think he might know what I'm talking about. Just my opinion...

No doubt that Steve and Ralf's vintage oyster will be a sweet combo on the upcoming Raven Vintage!!!! Great insight though Jeff! thumbsup.gif. I agree with you amigo...could be a surprisingly sweet fit with the Super Oyster II if the lug width is 22mm....hmmmm?...I guess it all comes down to the distance between the lug bar hole and the case.cool.gif

The bracelet is being custom made to fit this case. This is not a typical sub case, the lugs are 22mm. The end links on our bracelet are solid, the bracelet will have the rivets on the side, tapers like it should, the spring bar position is near the end of the lugs, this is the place it needs to be for our bracelet, and makes using a ZULU easier, but I think if you put a straight end steel bracelet on it it will not look good because of the gap between the case and bracelet. These watches will ship with the bracelet included and a rubber strap, so there is no need to buy another bracelet.

Arrgghhh! I had finally decided that now I would really save up to get a Omega PO, but this is just to great to pass up. Originaly I was not that thrilled about the 42mm, but I have canged my mind ...It´s just perfect Steve and Ralf!!! Great work guys.
And that domed crystal ...droooollllwowzer.gifGet this baby on a green/red regimental nato strap, and don´t look back (although that bracelet sure sounds nice to)
Btw, is the rubber strap to be included the 22mm Isofrane type strap Oscar has on it?
If so, my only con, but hey, everything else rocks!

I totally agree on the gap created. The rivets would be an excellent touch. Eagerly awaiting the final product.
