    Grand Seiko on Straps

    I love my Grand Seiko on bracelet that they came with. However since I use a laptop all day, bracelet just gets in the way and get scratched by the edge of the laptop. So the reasonable thing to do is straps.

    I'm sure there are others GS owners that wears their watches with straps instead of bracelet. Would love to see this thread grow to be a reference guide for others that want to walk on the strap side. So let's see some Grand Seiko on straps.

    I'll start with SBGH039 (21mm lug width) on a horse leather NATO strap I already have. I'm just cycling some extra straps I have already to get a feel before I purchase any specific strap for this GS.

    I wouldn't have thought that combination would be a look one could pull off, but it actually works pretty well. The dial color and the strap complement each other nicely.

    Also, it feels like an odd observation to make, but the stitching on the strap looks really even and carefully done. Seems like a lot of the time the thread ties on leather NATOs pinch the material.

    I was just as surprised that it will work at all. :) NATO and GS, almost an oxymoron. Then again you see plenty of Rolex pull off the NATO look successively, so why not GS. Will continue to try different straps until I find one that really work well. Some will be total duds, some will be meh, but so far its off to a good start. Life is way to short to not experiment with something as simple as straps. BTW, the NATO is a Panatime, they make quality stuff.

    Re: Grand Seiko on Straps

    i too, have been looking for a strap for my GS.
    I am only interested in one with curved ends.

    Have contacted a couple GS dealers over several months and
    received no response to my queries.

    Last week, I came across this forum and contacted the site sponsor, Topper.

    Today, Andrea at Topper and I discussed the possibility of finding one..
    She is searching for the correct one for my watch....My impression of Topper
    is that they are willing to go the distance to find the strap I am looking for....Apparently,
    it is not as easy as one might think.

    Would love to see what is out there. Been looking for a nice strap to complement my SBGH001 - need a strap to diminish the pesky gap btw side of case and end of strap.

    Never seen one on a Nato before, but it works nicely and looks good.

    BTW the 21mm lug width limits the selection of options.

    Re: Grand Seiko on Straps

    Here is another strap. Not feeling it. The stitching near the lug are a distraction to how clean the watch looks. But overall I think a nice reddish saddle brown color is the right direction.

    It's kinda hard to judge the watch on different straps when the watch is so damn beautiful!
