    That's beautiful, the strap as well!

    That looks really good, a nice chunky quality mesh. Would you mind sharing the brand/model and supplier? E.g. was this from Strapcode? Thanks.

    The shark mesh was on eBay and was found after long search because I needed to find an XL.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the good quality for about £25 as I wanted a half decent one but not at Strapcode prices for a £50 watch. I no longer have the suppliers name but the strap was quite like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/22mm-Watc...3FV:rk:37:pf:0

    That is a 22mm for the SE.

    Mind you, since the early days, I have modded my beater watch to death and spent about three times the original price - crown, date-wheel, hands, dial, Scuba Dude 2 caseback, bezel, bracelet and brush finishing the case. I think I got a bit carried away in the end with 'modders fever.'

    The cheaper bracelets on eBay start at around £5 and the better quality at £25. The eBay link has the clasp like mine.

    Hope this helps.

    Barry

    Many thanks Barry, this is enough to point me in the right direction :)

    I don't think I'll be modding this Vostok though, it's too beautiful, but some strap options would be good. Cheers.

    You can find it here. It's currently out of stock but you can sign up for an alert that will tell you when they're back on the shelves.
