    SBGK005 strap ideas wanted

    I put a deposit down on an SBGK005 yesterday. Looking forward to picking it up soon but one thing I want to do is swap out the very shiny and dressy small scale blue alligator strap for something a bit more casual. I always like how chestnuts and mid to lighter browns set off blue dials. So I'm leaning toward a chestnut (ish) brown large scale alligator (not glossy) or something similar.

    Of course with this GS the lug width is 19mm which limits my choices somewhat.

    Ideally here's what I'd like to find:

    -Mid/light brown to chestnut brown large scale alligator (not glossy)
    -Taper from 19mm to same width as deployant clasp on existing GS strap (not sure, anyone here know???) - want to use the GS deployant clasp.
    -Quick/easy release style spring bars

    Any suggestions?

    Also, if you have an SBGK005 on a non standard strap and want to share photos, I'd enjoy seeing them.

    Thanks!

    Have a look on WatchObsession. It’s a British site and I’m not sure if they ship to the U.S. but they stock all the big brands so you might get some ideas there.

    Look at panatime - 20% off exotics and plenty of 19mm straps.

    I'd opt to go for a custom-made strap, honestly - 19mm lug width and quick-release spring bars can be easily accommodated.

    According to the GS parts Seiya stocks, the regular GS deployant clasps are 16mm, while the Master Shop deployant clasps are 18mm.

    Hirsch by Watch Obsession certainly does, I'm a frequent flyer there and the shipping is free over a price bracket.

    Just got this today from combat straps in Montreal. Have it on the OEM deployant as well. Dresses it down perfectly to make it a daily wear candidate over the dressy alligator strap.

    This is the Helsinki strap from A Collected Man. It’s a dark grey (with brown undertones) nubuck with quick release spring bars. Very happy with it as it definitely makes it more smart-casual.

    Look forward to seeing yours! Congrats on the purchase. Are you buying it unseen?

    A custom made Sting Ray leather would look cool on that watch IMO.

    Sweet strap combo there! Judging from your IG you've come over to GS from Rolex via AP. Nice journey and some awesome photos along the way.
