Been toying with idea of having a leather strap fitted no my new Seiko Military watch. I wanted just the right look and colour that would suit my taste (and go with the watch obviously), but to no avail. So this morning I went to a jewelery store, went through the Hirsch range of leather straps they had, I found two I liked, but they both had polished buckles, which would not go with my watch. So the guy that helped me, disappeared to the back and came back with a buckle that has 99% of the same sand-blasted look than my watch's casing. This suited the one strap very well and I said I'll take it and this is the result - I'm really chuffed with it. The strap is a very dark brown, although it does appear almost black on the photos. Also, I had a rubber gasket fitted to the outside of the casing of the watch - there's like a groove that runs around the perimeter and I think this does add a little something extra to the watch (it's not that easy to see on the photos, but in real life - it does have an impact). Some photos below (also tried to be a bit arty in some of 'em). As always, you comments will be appreciated.
