If you own an older Seiko diver with 19mm lug width, Uncle Seiko's GL831 olive straps are currently only $25 - this is due to them being slightly narrower than our Uncle intended, so they're considered defective. But the good news is the 20mm fits a 19mm watch. Snug, but no problem. I tried one out on my 6105-8000 to mix things up. They're not silicone but they are quite flexible for rubber, much more flexible than my original Seiko GL831s.

Anyway a decent alternative for 19mm lugs. A few pics:

For $25 I got a 22mm version too, this is considered "defective" by Uncle Seiko. I have to admire his standards yet can't help but hope he makes more defective straps

That's like buying "seconds" cigars. Weeded out during final QC. They are often off color or have a blemish in the wrapper so they are sold without labels for cheap. But the tobacco is still the same. That's a great fit. Nice find. 😁

It does fit perfect Eric, and looks like way more than a decent alternative.
Actually seems like a phenomenal alternative ! 😉😀With the color, as
well as style really changing things up like you wanted. Yet giving you a
wonderful classic vibe at the same time. 😎I mean it's great because
the strap itself goes with the watch perfectly on the one hand. However,
actually has it's own personality too which is awesome ! Yowza, what
a get !!!

Sending a GIANT congrats your way E !!! ..Looking forward to seeing
you enjoy this, and give it a lot of wrist time. 😉
