    Off Topic post G-shock bund strap?

    I've seen square G-shocks on bund straps floating around. I've seen them in black as well. I know that bund straps aren't popular among WIS in general, but I think they're kind of cool looking. Does anyone know where to find these online?

    the first one in the pix is made by leather and it traps your body heat and sweat - very uncomfortable to wear : hot and sticky

    I got one with my G-5700, many years ago. Pretty cool looking strap.

    Even though it's not a square, I think this is the watch I saw a while ago. It does look really cool. It's a discontinued model, I assume? I'm going to have to start hunting.

    Very discontinued. It was a special edition back in something like 2004. It's the G-5700L-1JF. I think the strap was just "pleather", if memory serves me. Nothing to write home about.

    I thought the brown one was some custom mod, I though he really did great job matching the bezel color and strap. But I see the writing on crystal is same brown color, so it's probably original model from Casio?

    I'm not very familiar with bund straps, I saw someone put King on Bell&Ross style velcro, maybe you could do that as an alternative?
