    2pcs velcro strap for DW-9050, what are the chance to get one new?

    Hello, as tittle stated, what are the chance to get the velcro two piece strap for DW-9050 in new/like new conditions now? I'm looking one for a friend. google, forum search and ebay didn't get me any result. it's a gift from his passed friend so despite being pretty old, it holds sentimental value to him. my position is in Indonesia anyway.
    thank you.

    I'd rather buy from places that ship to Indonesia directly. Amazon won't :( but, if that would be my last choice, then I'll have to use a forwarding service

    I didn't take the picture, since when i met him last weekend my phone's battery drained totally. But from Google search, it's this one

    Actually the strap is still working, but the leather part is pretty much worn and the canvas part is hairy... Which makes him uncomfortable to bring it to work. I'll try to ask some photos if he took it to his work camp this week.

    Anyway, the site i found that picture listed it at 15.000jpy.. Whoa... That's some hefty price LOL

    perhaps it's time to get yourself and your wrist some updated technology
    that velcro strap traps body head and water, as a matter of fact, all of Gshock's old/classic velcro traps are
    get a pair of adapters and the one-piece zulu/nato strap
    easier to change and fashionable too

    He's helping out a friend who has a sentimental attachment to the watch. He does not want to update to a new watch.

    thanks for the suggestion :) but it's not for me. i've suggested him to either use resin or nato+adapter but he refused. he want to keep the previous look for the watch as sentimental keeper. as for a new watch for him, well.... it's an entirely different story and didn't fit to this thread's purpose since he's not looking for a G-shock - at least for the moment. i'm still working on persuading him ;)

    if he wants to restore to back to original, it will be difficult or expensive. he could come close with a one piece gshock velcro band and soem adaptors but by the time he does that its almost the price of a new one.
    id personally retire the watch, remember the good times and put it to the side or make it into a desk "clock" with a stand or attaching it to a toy or something then buying a new one to start the love affair all over again ^_^

    haha, i figured that too. But he's looking for a dressier and trendy fancy watch right now -I failed in convincing him getting a new G, sorry :(- and gonna use this as a weekend "beater" off the office.
    Sigh.... Still looking for clue xD

    I type butter when on my phone
