    Short Strap for Small Wrist

    I'm thinking about buying a Seiko 5 for my 9 year old son. His wrists are too small for the factory strap, and I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good, cheap replacement? Something Velcro might be the way to go, but I'd prefer another option.

    Thanks

    NATO cut according to your sons wrist measurement using a sharp blade and a quarter for a guide and then melt the end with a Bic lighter to seal it all off from fraying . Cheapest option probably and looks pretty cool to.

    OR get a ladies strap, in a manly colour of course voila problem solved.

    Love it. He will lose his mind over a camo NATO strap.

    My wrist is 6.25". Hadley Roma has short straps and I still have 2 holes left on my HR to use.
