In the past 2 weeks I've gone through some serious WIS trauma. I had to sell off my meager collection because of some financial set backs. I've already sold my U1 and my SOA and when my Glycine Incursore comes back from Everest I'm gonna probably have to sell it as well. So, here I sit feeling naked with zero mechanical watches to wear. In an attempt to ease the pain a bit I picked up a Tissot Seastar w/ silver dial for $300 as my one and only everyday wearer. I'm not so much into the flashy bracelet that comes with it so I'm looking for an affordable, totally waterproof, black strap for it. Black strap silver dial mmmmmmm........ Here's the dilemma... The only rubber/silicon strap that doesn't make my wrist break out is the crappy PVC Seiko type. The problem with that is, I used to own a SS 1000 a while back and the Seiko style strap looks terrible on it. It must be the blocky case.... I also tried a Zulu/Nato on it and the Seastar head is just too thick and heavy for 1 wimpy layer of nylon... What about leather??? Well, I have yet to find a "waterproof" leather strap that is actually waterproof and that doesn't end up with serious sweat stank after a couple of weeks. There is also the carbon or kevlar option, but IMO the carbon is too flashy and shiny and don't the kevlar straps have a leather backing??? Hum, now what?
Then I ran across the double thick nylon KHS Conqueror MK II.
Has anyone had any experience with this particular strap? How thick is it and what's the quality like? Any input would be great! :thanks
