Now that looks interesting – great pic :thumbup:

Is it a GMT? And I love that bracelet. I need something like that on the Airman.

Yep. Seiko SUS GMT, and the bracelet works really well on it.

ok, tried out the new cork strap on the Seiko SNZH51 and i'm not so sure about this. like the strap, not sure about on this watch. but it's probably the best of the three 22mm lug width watches i own (c60 FLE red and halios tropik black).

Thanks Nick and James!

The Sub ND does look great on a NATO too.

As for the cork strap it might look better on the Halios? Being dark dial.. It seems too light for the white dial. How does it feel btw? Sturdy and strong? Water proof?

Never mind the 666, lol there's almost 10,000 posts in this thread!

it's a little stiff to start off with, but i've heard they soften up well. i think water "resistant" is a better description. i wouldn't swim with it, but i think it will take getting wet pretty well.

maybe i'll give it a shot on the halios. if i decide dark would work better, maybe i'll move this one on and order a darker one.

gwells - I think the cork looks good on the seiko ( which incidentally also looks good) where did you get this from ?
It'sAliveJim - I like it, but I thought you would have gone with an Iron Maiden pic. with it being 'the number of the beast'

10,000, good job gwells, I'd thought about looking back at this thread for some inspiration but maybe not! It could take a while.

Definitely a cool look. Do you reckon it is based on a JLC Master Compressor?
