Default Seiko SUN065 PADI kinetic

Bought the new SEIKO SUN065 PADI special edition GMT kinetic.
Great watch so far. Incredibly accurate!
Put on a full charge in 2 days for a 6 month power reserve.
Stunning dial, bezel rotates with solid movement with no backwards play.
Lume is stunning. Silicone strap is perfect on my 7 inch wrist and very comfortable. Much nicer than the rubber dust attracting band found on less expensive Seikos in my opinion.

Lug to lug wears great (51mm)
47mm case
14 mm thick
Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coatings.

The detail on this watch is amazing.
Check it out!
Sorry about the orientation of the picture, could not rotate it.

Nice! I actually like this better than the PADI Turdle, but just a tad too big for my preference.

Default Strap

Thanks guys!
Looking at the Hirsch performance Tiger Perforated Blue leather rubber watch band strap for the new PADI Kinetic.

Any other recommendations for straps?

Mesh would go nicely.

IMO, silicone gathers more dust and dirt than anything. Very comfortable though. Have to agree with Roarry. I like jason's mesh. Looks good on that piece and they are comfortable too.
