I've switched the mighty Bulova "Davey Pee" onto a thick black leather strap, just for a change, so I'll be wearing it today to see if I like it better than the original bracelet (no photo of the strap yet):

I have better but for some reason I really like this Sekonda. Maybe the slightly domed crystal which magnifies or the way the sub dials unwind all the way back to zero.

I've taken a couple of pics of the Davey Pee with it's new strap (and just noticed the date is wrong - DOH! :mad0218:):

Would have been better if the stitching was yellow to match the second hand, but it's a great quality strap, and is lot lighter and more comfortable than the bracelet anyway  :thumbsup:

You cheeky monkey, I'll ignore that! :angry:

The strap was included with a TW Steel watch from the sales corner, along with the original one.  I preferred to keep the watch all original, so I put the original strap back on and this has been sat in my spares box. I've fitted it to a few other watches, and it looks pretty good on anything to be honest.  The branding on the back is "Strap Junkie" and the quality is awesome.

That is the pic that got me thinking about changing the bracelet for a strap - Cheers mate :notworthy:

Oh, and stop press: I've now switched it again, this time to the Nixon black rubber strap from my "The Unit" digital - My favourite strap of all time, and now it's a keeper :tongue:
