Hey guys,
Got the razor from a member here and despite the undisclosed plier crimp marks someone did to tighten on end links, it looks okay I feel. Makes the 6105 so comfortable to wear and I barely feel it on my wrist. What do you think, yay or nay?

It makes the watch so darn comfortable though. I may agree it's not a aesthetic fit for a 6105 but I will wear it like this for the day at least. Thanks for input :eek:ccasion14:

At the risk of being awkward I'm saying big " Yay". :)

I think the curve on the case kinda goes with the curves on the bracelet ( if you see what I mean ). Definitely got a bit of an old timey look going on.

The dog doesn't seem too impressed though.

Thanks for sharing

Kind Regards

Graham

We use to wear Jaffi Jurado bracelets on 6217's and it did not bother us
at all In fact it was very strong for where we were.
It was the " 60's and 70's " , Hippie look back then.:72:

If you want comfort ...Get a High quality stretch band in Stainless and put it on any watch...But who wants to get caught wearing one ???

It will other someone if

Being it is a metal bracelet, it might aggravate the wrist of some.
People with chunky wrists seem to like that set up for fit.
A bit heavy on the wrist but some like it, some don't.

Congrats on your 6105. Looks great.
There is something that feels really good about wearing a watch from the mid 70's with an original seiko bracelet from the same era. This is what my 6105 came with and nothing has felt as good.

I received wise advice when I got it. 'Its part of the watches story... Leave it be. ' the band has definitely grown on me.

The razor looks like a good combo.

The one pictured seems to be a 18mm from the 7S36 reissues a few years back. Try and see of you can get an original as these were 19mm.

I have found that using the wrong sized bracelets on watches ends up marking the watch case a lot more as the bracelet can move around and rub.
