Default Barton Watch Straps.

Well, I'm really loving my Seiko Turtle but, combined with the stainless steel band, it was feeling a little heavy for my liking. I did some searching and found Barton watch straps and decided to go with their Elite Silicone red for the Turtle. It is amazingly light and I really am digging my Turtle now!

In re: watch bands.
Talk about yer being a few years late and few $'s short.
Back n tha day when I was a RR engr we had a freight conductor
who made all kinds of leather goods. Mostly at our layover spots.
Some while he was enroute on the caboose. He could have made
me dozens of leather straps. But I was carrying a pocketwatch.
RR grade wristies weren't approved yet.

I don't get your response but, whatever. The watch wears better now that it feels lighter on my wrist.

Boy oh boy, that looks awesome, and like it fits like a glove with
the design, and also comfort wise SeikoLuvR !

I know you were looking for a strap for your SNZF17J2 earlier
in the week, and now you found a winner for this stunner here.
It's terrific how it not only works with the watch perfectly, but
evidently is so light, and comfortable like that.

Big congrats on the find !!!

SeikoLuvR:
My intent was to express WF's don't live by stl stl or rubber straps alone
Many Freeks like leather straps. And that I had a good source for leather
straps right under my nose. But didn't avail myself of leather straps acct of
carrying pocketwatches most of the time.
