Looking at getting a Black PVD shark mesh strap for my 7C43 7010. Any suggestions on who do a nice one? Photos of your own would be nice. I like the Breitling ends, but not the type of clasp and adjustment they come with. How comfortable are they? Are they a good strap for diving (secure type clasp)? Hence why I would prefer the sliding adjustment type clasp, not "solid" clasp or are those adjustable to? Hope this makes sense. Only asking here as sellers don't really know or reluctant to comment. Also, does anyone still use their Seikos [or any vintage watch] for diving? Apologise if this is in the wrong forum area.

Regards, David

I've just fitted a wjean 22mm mesh to my H558-500A and I'm very pleased with it.








I'm about to order a black version to fit to my H558-5000.

Is it adjustable as you wear it? Mine will need to go over a wet suit, then back to wrist.

They look snazzy no matter what watch there on (to an extent). Thank for the pics!! Nice watch by the way.

I've a WJean dlc mesh and the only adjustment is by removing links and/or the spring bar at the clasp. I felt that the clasp was a bit cheap and nasty: it only has three adjustment holes and it wouldn't close in one of the positions so I was unable to get a good fit. I was going to send it back for a refund but decided to try it with a new clasp from strapcode.com and now its perfect. Check out the Strapcode site as its Hong Kong based but the clasp I purchased shipped from the UK and arrived in a couple of days. I've also heard that the Strapcode and WJean bracelets come from the same factory but I can't confirm this.

There's a lot of straps on that site, looking for a leather Zulu 5 ring PVD as well, I'm just too picky really. I'd like a sliding type of adjustment on the clasp, just feed one end through the clasp and then clamp it off, but feel that won't be secure enough. There's a ratchet type clasp on strap codes, wonder how well they work.
That Seiko looks amazing (drool), does it live in a soft dark place, doesn't even look worn, amazing!!!

I have multiple of the WJean, the thicker one that isn't the sliding adjustment. They wear incredibly well, and are way less that the guy always touting German ones. They do not have a adjustment to them like you're looking for, but if you wanted you could I guess go get a clasp for a 3ooMM, but those are only in silver, not PVD. Other than the adjustability though, I think you'd love a WJean.

Think I'll get a WJean adjustable/link type mesh strap, and invest in a divers ratchet type buckle from strap codes, and see how it fairs. Both are black, so no problem with colour, think it would cost a bit to get hold of a 300MM then PVD it, never seen one advertised for sale. I'll post some pics when it's all together.
Just need someone to post on here that they use their old Seiko for diving, I know there's dive computers out there now and what not, but there's no school like old school!! :)

Hi David,
I purchased a 22mm straight end item no 181183830919 from seller qualitytimeorguk from our friendly eSite, after service was good, as adjustment of strap was tricky. Bracelet I felt though a little slim in thickness.
Also have seen mesh Hadley-Roma on GlobalWatchband and more mesh on Strapcode as already mentioned above.
Slim or thick bracelet personal choice, but my feeling is a thicker one for a bigger body case.
Happy shopping, regards
Wayne
