    Picked one up for £148 in the UK. Was pleased with that.

    Very happy with the strap. I have a blumo and an Omega SMP and I have always struggled to find an acceptable non SS strap. The blue of this rubber is excellent, not too garish.

    My only issue is the N D Limit markings. I only have two citizens, this and an NY0040 and I dislike the lettering on both.

    Earlier in the thread someone mentioned using acetone. Any one used nail varnish remover or similar? Does it work? Does in leave a mark or discolour the rubber?

    Will probably pick up a metal strap at some stage.

    I also wonder what would have happened if this had been released by Seiko. It's a great watch. Bezel is a little easy to move but the finish is great. Really happy with it.

    I used acetone once and it was though to get all the lettering out. You get rid of the white and yellow but the it's still marked and you'll see them when the light is right (and it's right more often than not).

    My black one hasn't shipped yet

    On the strap front, I'm not risking the vanilla scent thing, I really hate it and yes, it makes me headaches also. I might go with a Maratac Elit/Composite with black stitching, I had one of these on my long gone NY0040:






    It's some sort of composite material, so it's water proof and won't suck up water. It's a bit thick at the lugs (5mm) and needs some breaking in but it's also parallel and that might be nice to this BN0151 which could have be made with 22mm lugs. The worst thing about the Maratac is this AFAIR:



    First keeper is fixed and placed pretty far away from the buckle, which makes it an odd ware.

    Outside of the keeper problem, I think it's going to be a good choice for the black version.

    I have been able to move the "floating keeper" back over the fixed one (towards the buckle) and it solved the problem for my ~ 7" wrist.
    Hope this helps.

    That's fairly easy, you just need to take the buckle out. Still, you get a floating keeper that is fixed and that you might wnated to go a little bit further. I've looked into these again and I'm now aware that there is a XL version, so I'm not sure what I had back when. The buckle piece seems a bit too long on the first picture though. You'll notice from the last picture that I did need the second keeper to cover a bit of tail and I had a 7.25 wrist at the time (less nowadays).

    It's still a tip to someone, these are nice looking straps that are good for water. There also cheap, so I might try one again.

    I have more or less two more weeks to wait for the damn watch though...

    sarahbeth co uk has them for about 156 quid, lowest UK price I could find.

    Oh, and maybe there's an additional 5% discount using code SALE5, so that's 148.

    Well, I just pulled the trigger and ordered one from JacobTime. Ordered a navy blue zulu-type strap off ebay to go with it until I find a good bracelet. Sold my NY0040 so I could buy this one. I hope it was worth it!
