    Assuming you mean me Amaro, old chap. It's bought from a UK army surplus shop some years ago. It's actually a one piece Sleeve/cover. Cheap as chips, but does keep all the site dust/detritus off nicely. Stinks a bit, but is machine washable. (Which is to say, it hasn't fallen apart yet.) See shots below.....
    A brief google using words/script like DPM, NATO, watchstrap cover, UK gives you... Military style Watch Covers - Surplus and Outdoors
    You might come up with better if you exercise more patience than i. Even works on old Code Masters....

    Does any one have any tips on better fitting my king on my wrist? Like the fourth hole is too loose and the third is too tight :/ thanks in advance.

    Oh ok I see now! Nice! I actually thought you had replaced the straps with those, and since I am currently looking for a way to better "fit" my king on the wrist I figured this would have been exactly what I was looking for. Great project nonetheless, I might have to do some fabrication and come up with something. Cheers.

    Dude, last time i screwed with a factory standard strap, i left a nice new luminox ($200) that i was just getting to like, with a nice new NATO strap($25) at the bottom of the Cooper River in North Caroliner.
    Although you cant see it, that Code master has a similar "mod" to the below Frog (If you can see that, sorry for the crap camera) Basically cut four slots into a nice thick (2" or 50mm) piece of belt leather. Once you have it in place, it just kinda fits your wrist in time. I mean litterally....it just gets more and more comfortable. IF YOU CAN stand the offset. They last for years and all the stinky build up you get, you can just scrape off. (YUK!) But hey, it works.....
    There's prolly better ways. but not many that last. That piece of leather on the frog was first on a protrek 10 plus years ago....
    And the chicks dig the pheromones......Ok no....I'd scrap often...and..well!....in my case....anyway....

    Oh gosh!!! Yeah I'd rather deal with the king the way it is lol I would hate to lose it to the bottom of the Delaware river or something, especially since summer is arriving. Actually, weird story... Today I decided to wear it on my right wrist instead of my left (on the third hole) and surprisingly enough it fits and feels very good! I'm happy and you may have just saved a king with your story there sir'! Since I'll be doing ZERO modifications to this factory band! Cheers! And thanks again
