    Help me find the perfect strap!

    I am looking for a light brown/golden brown smooth leather strap for a Seiko SARB065. I really want this watch to be perfect, any suggestions are appreciated

    Cheers,

    Dex

    Ultimately, there's no substitute for doing your own legwork. Sticky thread at the top here has all kinds of online sellers, and flip through some of the other targeted threads.

    I will say, don't focus on price alone. Also, my strong preference now is for minimal stitching. Full stitching often means padding is included, and I'd rather get better leather...shell cordovan or Horween. If you want confidence...unlined, with the Horween stamp on the underside, means you're getting full-grain leather.

    There are also quite a few very small makers who don't even have web sites...they're not that big. Etsy has a large number of vendors like this.

    If you do the legwork and find straps that look good, you can check for reviews/comments.

    And you'll be in better position for the *next* strap purchase. There will be more coming, once you start down this path. :)
