    Looking for this here strap..

    Hi Forum,

    I'm Paul from the Netherlands. I'm new to the forum, so hello to all!, but not new to G-Shocks, been wearing 'm for about 16 years now.

    My current every-day watch is something of a hybrid of my own construction using a Black Helios (remember those?) and with parts of two others, a velcro and snap strap attached.

    Here's the thing though; my strap needs replacing. Can't find it anywhere on the web though.. I'm looking for the all-black velcro and snap strap, of which I've added a picture borrowed from one of the sites that list them but have no stock, and given the age, I'm guessing if there's no stock now, there won't be any....

    Any of you fine knowledgeable gentlemen know where one can still pick one up?

    Much obliged,

    Paul

    Welcome to the forum!

    If tiktox don't have them, I wouldn't know where to look next. Have you asked if tiktox can order them?
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Thanks!

    No, truth be told I haven't yet, assuming that since it's from way back in the day, it's probably no longer manufactured..

    But I'll give it a try nonetheless, thanks!

    Paul

    Is this not them??

    Casio straps - G Shock - Cloth & Velcro - from Tiktox.com

    Edit: Just noticed they only have charcoal or navy though. Sorry. Have you thought of grabbing the charcoal and just RIT dying it black?

    Hi Marcs,

    yeah I found those, and indeed pondered dying one, but first of all I'm not sure whether that would fully work, but more importantly, even if I manage to dye it, it'll still have 'g-lide' woven into it..

    I know I'm fussy, but this is my 'put together from 3 G-Shocks watch', so I want it to be perfect again:)

    I've contacted several sellers, but no luck so far... Anyone?

    Re: Looking for this here strap..

    I've now been contacted by several dealers telling me it's useless as it hasn't been made in quite a while, but I'm not giving up yet - someone has to still have some old stock laying around...

    Does anyone know the serial number of the strap? That might be a big help in looking..

    Thanks again, Paul
