Hello all new to forum!

looking at two seiko watches

http://www.jherronandson.co.uk/watc...-p3977/s4914?gclid=CPSnzpXr68YCFXDHtAodXI0JSQ

or

Its the face I like in particular and never had a seiko before. I normally go for leather watches like the top but fancy a change and go for the steel steap but bothered about how 'thick' the seiko are, is the steel seiko watch strap a thick one if you get what I mean compared to leather or is it thin steel?

Thanks

Hey Union,

In my humble opinion, Seiko's bracelets are ...excuse the pun, the weak link in their watches. Many that I have came with cheapo rolled steel links and clasps that were flimsy. Some of the watches are very nice and merit better steel. With that said , I am sure some models > 500 have better bracelets, but then again they shoul at that price point.

The date is pretty cool on those!

That steel strap will be good quality & nice n smooth. As previously stated, lower-end Seiko steel straps are usually not very good at all.

If you're not used to bracelet straps, bear in mind that you may have to adjust the strap a little between summer/winter which is easy enough to do but also easy to scratch the bracelet.
Also your exact fit may be between 2 adjustment positions, so the strap may be slightly tight or slightly loose. It can also change during the day - mine is usually very slightly loose, but right now for some reason is slightly tight. Gotta love the Jubliee bracelet tho (see my avatar)!

IMO leather looks best on that watch. But I prefer the dark face.:confused:
