    New Seiko Arrived At My Doorstep ***PICTORIAL***

    So not sure if I made a correct choice in terms of a brown strap.
    I was flip flopping between this or a black one. The strap was $19.99
    and it came with the rose gold plated deployment clasp. I could of
    gone the safe route and picked up the black one to match the black steel
    but decided to go with brown to try to pick up the brown dial. Maybe I should
    of gone with a black leather strap? You guys be the judge :)

    I think the brown looks fantastic - it goes with the rose gold finish and doesn't clash with the black dial. Black is so boring, anyway; I usually avoid it when I can. The brown strap makes the watch stand out a bit more.

    I haven't seen this model before. It's a cool looking piece.

    The brown strap accentuates the bezel. I have a thing for deployment clasps, so that's a cool addition.



    Nice shots and thanks for sharing.

    Other than the tail being the wrong way I think it looks very classy on the brown.

    When it comes to deployments I like it in that direction for some reason it feels more comfortable and easier to put on :)

    nice watch. Is this a mod or an actual model itself?

    Your strap colour choice is perfect, David. It matches the bezel and even dial perfectly!

    It adds character and shows your already gorgeous timepiece more elegant! I also mostly prefer brown, burgundy, even good tone of dark red leather straps over black straps.

    Wear it in the best of health . . .
