    For water activities I use either a kevlar or a velcro strap. Both my Morellato.

    And I also have it sometimes on a bracelet, "borrowed" from a Casio Lineage watch. The fit is not perfect, but good enough for me

    Much nicer with the Hirsch Liberty strap. For 35 bucks this is a great buy, did I say the stock strap is garbage?

    Alright fellow Alpinists,

    I have a question. I saw that the three big name sellers of JDP Seikos have restocked their supply of Alpinists bracelets. I'm trying to decide whether I should buy the bracelet or buy a thick Panerai-esque strap for my SARB017. I usually wear my watches on bracelets, so leather will be new to me. What do you all suggest?

    As for me though leather > bracelets. I am biased because I like my wrist light because I have some wrist issues. Also leather straps/NATO can give your alpinist the much cooler vintage look. That's just my opinion. Not like it's important. Lol.

    I have one on the way with the 2 factory straps, leather and SS. I's like to get a nicer leather strap, what's the lug with on these Alpinists? 20mm?


    thanks,

    I have recently bought the Alpinist bracelet and feel it suits it really well. I like to have the bracelet for a watch if a bracelet is available but, even when I've got the bracelet tend to wear leather more. One thing to bear in mind about a "thick Panerai-esque strap" is that it is only a 20mm lug. I have had a thickish vintageish strap on it but my favourite strap for it is a Darlena Woodland. Pics below of both straps and the bracelet (and more in this gallery)

    If the bracelet is available again and you normally wear your watches on a bracelet then I say get the bracelet. I'm sure it won't be difficult to sell later on if you change your mind. I have the bracelet on mine and don't wear it any other way since I think it makes the watch even better.
