    What is the Best Bracelet on my Seiko Presage StarLight?

    Dear Guys, after changing many straps, I find out that the dark blue dial of the Limited starlight 087 is actually shine the most on a bracelet

    The problem is that I'm not quite satisfy with the original seiko bracelet and need to look at STRAPCODE BRACELET and have found 3 options

    Here is my starlight and the original bracelet

    I think they all look awful. That watch is made for straps

    I think it looks best on the brushed oyster. Otherwise, I'd go leather.

    The watch is on the dressy side and would look better on a strap, but if you insist on a bracelet, then a Jubilee would be my choice, in keeping with the dressiness of the watch.

    I would go with a black leather strap to complement your watch's blue dial for a more classic look. However, if you find that your Seiko aesthetically looks better on a bracelet than go with the ANGUS Jubilee.

    As above, those bracelets suck. That jubilee looks cheap and tacky and the watch doesn’t suit at oyster bracelet. Put it on. A dark blue alligator strap (or anything dark blue)

    if it has to be a bracelet, I've found that the old Gay Freres Beads of Rice style ones work better on vintagey/"dressy" style watches compared to the Rolex Oyster or Jubliee style ones.

    Wish you have this watch in flesh. It not pop on blue/dark blue strap (I HAVE ALREADY TRIED)

    Only bracelet/ light colour strap can make it pop...

    Hmm... I'm surprised so many people hate the bracelets. I really like the oyster with the PCLs. I think it should be a bracelet with some polished element to match the case better - the fully brushed oyster looks weird to me.
