Default Turtles with Leather?

Would love to see some Seiko Turtles with 2pc. leather watch bands. I am trying to find something for my Seiko SRP789K1 but, it's hard to visualize when just looking at the bands. If you got some pics, please post them and what band maker you have. Thanks in advance, SeikoLuvR.

No worries! I think I've decided to go to field watches and my divers will probably just go away now.

Asked and here’s the answer, my PADI Turtle on Barton “Quick Release” blue leather strap. Cost about $25

Great soft leather straps that need almost no break-in time and the quick release has you changing out straps in seconds with no tools.

That looks very nice, at a great price too.
Chaz, are you the guy who tried several different band options on a turtle? It may not have been you, and it wasn't this PADI for sure. Maybe a save the ocean.

I tried a few before arriving at a blue Zulu Diver on my STO turtle.

Maybe a Nato with PVD hardware will be the next choice??


This's what I was thinking of, the thread has a couple different bands.

Smile Turtle/strap

This is a pilot's strap from Di Modell! It has a step down to fit the Turtle perfectly. It's also water resistant and is well made.....
