    Leather strap and G shock

    I have a Casio Tough Solar as my beater watch for vacation, water situations, hiking, etc. It's a watch i'm not afraid to put on a wrist and do whatever i want to do. It took some damage, but still works.
    I thought G shock could be the next logical step, but i find them really ugly and way to busy. Until i saw GSTS130L in person. I like how it looks and i LOVE it's leather light brown strap.

    BUT...i don't think G shock and leather strap mix together. How does this strap work in water situations (swimming, showering, salt,...)?

    Agree leather and G Shocks are a mismatch.
    Regarding water, I would say never with a leather band. Expands and contracts when dries. Any adhesive will be stressed. That stitching also won't stand up.

    thats not leather.
    its 100% synthetic with a print over it that looks like leather.

    Also known a long time ago as pleather, and in my youth as Naugahyde.

    Many naugas gave their lives for furniture, and the auto industry almost decimated them. They rebounded and were commercially raised in China where the genetically selected albinos were used for the running shoe industry. Cheaper synthetic woven materials largely replaced them and many were released in a humanitarian gesture in the Carolinas. It's been reputed some of the locals have harvested them and sewn entire suits from their pleather. Ref: "Lizard Man sighted during partial eclipse" back in the 80's. They had already perfected the tailoring when the EPA got a ban on alligator passed and the out of work artisans found themselves relegated to laundering truck loads of designer jeans for gas money.

    Looks like Casio has invested in the industry. Things are looking up.
