    Also, the traditional non-compass crown is such a pleasure to handwind (smoothest in all my watches).

    Recently shipped from seiya. I had to get the bracelet after seeing these pictures. (not mine, yet)

    Installed a nice camel color strap from G. in Greece. The purse is a caimon alligator skin for the wife's birthday gift.

    About that SS bracelet, I have it but removed it because the clasp did not lie flat enough for my liking. One end tended to be raised. Mind you, I have a smallish 6.5 inch wrist and the curvature of the clasp tends to be less arced....

    Hi T Wong, do you own a SARB033/035? If so, could you comment on the quality of the SARB017 bracelet and that of the SARB033/035?

    The photos I've seen make both bracelets seem similar in quality, so curious to hear from those who have owned both.

    Okay, you scared me into buying one, would be utterly depressed if they were completely unavailable. I've always liked the look of the 017 and think it will be a nice addition to the 50 odd watches in the collection. Anyway after reading 27 or so pages of the thread I'm pretty sure you all can't be wrong...

    Sorry, I have not seen the sarb33/35 bracelet to compare.

    I've had both and I think the bracelet that comes with the SARB017 is on par with the bracelets off the SARB035

    I like the look of the factory strap, but have not been able to break it in as well as I hoped. I received this Hirsch GOLF strap today and put it on (with help from the strap section of this forum), I like it very much. No wrist shot, once you've seen one hairy wrist, you've pretty much seen them all.
