Just put my father's repaired Seiko 6309 on a nice 22mm Maratac Zulu 2-ring. Showed it to my friend who prompty blasted me for using "those cheap looking cr*ppy nylon bands". He's not a watch-guy per se, though he does wear a Skagen quartz.
I love the look, economy, toughness, styling and security of these bands and I think it's a prefect compliment to the watch's true nature. Especially the diving heritage of the Seiko.
Any advice for explaining that the Zulus and Natos are part of real hardworking tool-watch styling regardless of what the fashionista's think?
