Which strap suits the watch

on Sat Jan 07 2017, 13:29
I really like my Seiko 7548-700B in fact it is turning out to be my favourite of my collection apatfrom the fact I just can not seem to find the right strap to suit the watch.

I had a dig around today and found a rather large collection of straps



Which one suits the watch guys I need your help here

Nice selection of straps.

Brown leather with white stitching, bottom left looks good.

The strap, middle right, with the red, black and white is a clever idea and a good match colour wise. If it's a chunky / substantial watch though it may feel a bit light or flimsy.

The black leather strap also matches though the acid test would be trying it on the wrist to see if it was comfortable. In fact I think that would apply to all of them as most of the straps look suitable but may just not feel right on the wrist. Very Happy

I have had this dilemma before with a couple of Seikos and in my opinion the Pepsi bezel is a better option on the watch than the black but and this is were it's hard to find the right strap the black bezel insert divers seem to suit more straps

That does look good.

While I like mesh straps they sometimes don't feel comfortable. Its like they are too rigid rather than having some give to fit around the wrist. It's probably though down to my bony wrists rather than the straps. Very Happy
