Default Seiko strap for Tuna homage

As I stated before, the strap that came with the Heimdallr 'Tuna' homage is a dust magnet. It's made out of silicone rubber and already the matt surface is starting to wear off at some spots. So I ordered a genuine 22mm Seiko replacement strap, a DAL1BP (replacement for the GL831):



Packaging (with two fat spring bars):





From various angles (it has only one keeper):


















It fits the watch like a glove!

How does it fit and feel on the wrist?

Good. It's less pliant compared to the strap the watch came with but more so compared to other straps I have used in the past. The ad stated the strap is made out of rubber but I wonder what kind. And I have the luck that it fits. Sometimes, because of the way the holes are spaced it's either too tight or too lose but it fits, well, like a glove

Yes definitely that looks the part. I've decided to stick with the same strap. Or the GL831 anyway. Even though it's well worn in, it's obviously stiffer than that silicone thing but it kind of morphs to the shape of your wrist too over time.

Looks like the exact same strap to me with a different buckle design.

Hey neat Frans ! Was thinking how not many factory straps out there
are instantly recognizable like this. Just the whole design, and even logo
on it are awesome. But then they are evidently excellent quality wise, and
feel great on the wrist ! ..Seriously, you couldn't ask for more.

Oh yeah, and they won't break the bank most likely. So there is another
cool aspect ! ..Was a fantastic idea to pick one up Frans. So glad that
you got it, and that it's so comfortable. Big congrats there sir !!!
