    Recommend strap similar to Maratec Elite for Seiko diver??

    I want to put a black stitch Maratec Elite strap on my Seiko SK007, but they are no longer made.

    Can anyone recommend something similar, ie black, smooth (no ridges or perforations), relatively thick?

    Thanks

    I bought a 24 and 22 from there in the last couple weeks. The quality is very good--I believe they are Maratac.

    thanks for the additional comments. county comm is out of the black stitch model, plus they charge $15 for shipping and handling. they must really handle that strap a lot because postage is probably less than a dollar. 20 pounds plus exchange and shipping is also a bit much from watchobsession.

    i ordered one of the ones like drivegas got. hopefully it works well.

    just to update, i got this strap

    22mm Black PVC Composite Rubber Diver Strap Watch Band Fit Breitling Maratac 22 | eBay

    turns out it is similar to my Maratec, but also different. it is shorter. i have a relatively small wrist, and the strap barely reaches the 2nd strap loop. if the strap is not in the loop, the loop migrates around on the strap. also, the material feels a little different. might be because it is not broken in yet.

    i'm going to keep it as it is close enough, but imo the Maratec is a superior strap.

    Thanks for the update. They sure looked the same from the ad. I think I have sold all of my genuine Maratacs :( .
