happy_watcher Some good points here, I am still evaluating the bracelet for my Alpinist. Trying out some leather options next week to replace the OEM hideous alligator strap.

Don't take any hits for a gap between the bracelet and watch, Look at Bonds nato on his rollie. Looks like missing teeth and there is worldwide WIS praise.

Thar9819 I ordered two straps, one golden tan leather and a NATO the same color. It only cost me 5 minutes of time. The strap that comes on it is quite hideous, even with the small gap it still looks much better.

Truth be told and with respect, that's not a good fit. Why not try and find a bracelet that fits properly and feel good about it

The SARB013 (creme) and 015 (black dial) Alpinists came on a bracelet, which is the D3A7AB. The bracelet Seiya offers is from the SARG005, which is apparently the same or very similar. The cases are also similar, but the SARG is bigger. Both share the 20mm lug width, though.


Thank you for the correction Jonas.

Fantastic choice! Looks the part.

Welcome to SCWF! Enjoy.

I looked at buying a M0TZ111J0 for my Sarb017 but its construction leaves a lot to be desired especially at its price point - so instead I went in a different direction - purchased a Strapcode Two-Tone Jubilee. This bracelet compliments the indices on the dial and ups it game in the “Sophistication Dept.”.
