  1. Seiko H558 Arnie Creative Strap Pairing Gallery

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    I just got back this 1982 Seiko H558-5000 Arnie JDM from service. My good man James (SCWF: uncleluck, IG: greenfield2854) did a knock out job restoring it and it looks like a dream. Being a big black watch, it's a candidate for all kinds of creative strap pairings, and well, I got creative :)...
  2. Poljot Okean Creative Strap Combos

    NON-JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION
    I've been a strap buying binge. Here's what I came up with for my Poljot Okean Maktime Re-issue: Blue REWA heavy duty single pass strap. I actually don't remember where I go this. The blue matches the blue on the watch, but I actually don't like that. I think it looks better to have...
  3. Multi-colored Zulu Straps?

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    So I'm typically a big fan of NATO straps - as a younger guy in a group of friends who aren't too into watches I can get away with wearing more eye-catching timepieces, and a fun, multi-colored strap helps with that. However, now that I'm getting more into vintage watches I've notice that a lot...
  4. Unusual Seiko stretchy clasp

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    Got this electronic 0703-7090 (Elnix) in the post today from Yahoo Auction. Fortunately the watch started working with a new battery and the 3-faceted crystal is not in bad shape, but then I noticed the stretchy clasp on the bracelet (XLB141). I've not seen one like this before. It seems to have...
  5. 4006-6040 Bellmatic bracelet problem solved!!!

    BELLMATICS FORUM
    Good evening, gentlemen (safe to assume, I reckon). I do believe this problem has been mentioned here before a few times, but I'm starting a new thread as this here is a definitive solution - you are welcome. Bellmatic case 6040 has a shape which does not allow for installation of normal...
  6. UncleSeiko's reinforced canvas strap mini-review

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    Hey everyone, I got this strap from our own UncleSeiko (Larry) a while ago, but could not find a good match - until now. I got this SBBN007 Tuna recently, and the shroud has a matte finish - not brushed like the case of most of my divers. So the matte hardware matches the shroud very...
  7. Leather straps for a Seiko 6139-6015 blue dial?

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    Hi I recently won an auction for a 6139-6015 with a blue dial and I'm looking for inspiration for different straps. I've googled a bit but can only find pictures of it with the metall link. So I figured other owners of a 6139-6015 here on this forum might be willing to share pictures of their...

  9. Replacement Rubber Straps for Navihawk

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    I just bought a Navihawk AT with the black rubber strap. I decided to buy a replacement orange rubber strap from panatime.com. I bought a 22mm strap but the strap keeps falling off. I put the pins in tight but they keep popping out. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it because the strap end...

  11. Strap options: GL831 vs DAL1BP

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    After buying a vintage 6309-7049 complete with GL831 strap and wearing it a few times, I could not shake the feeling that I should not trust a 37 year old rubber strap. While it is in good condition (no tears or other damage), I wanted something new. After seeing some aftermarket "replacements"...

    Pulled the trigger … after years of searching I'm now awaiting a wonderful King Seiko Certified "Special" ref 5246-6000. It's gonna take about a week or two to get here from Japan and needless to say, the waiting is the hardest part (just like Tom Petty sang) ::ohmy: This is one of the threads...
