About a year ago, I bought my brother a Strapcode Super Engineer II 22mm bracelet, as he has a good number of watches in that size. He absolutely loves the thing, and uses it quite often.

I, too, was quite taken with the product, but I guess I always had something else to blow my spending money on, as I never got one for myself.

Until now, that is. I adore this bracelet already.

It is flawlessly machined (brushed with polished sides), gorgeous and just oozes quality.

As fond as I was of my original ORIENT Mako, the end-link situation relegated her to NATO territory, and I really am a bracelet kind of guy.

Then I bought the MakoUSA and forgot about my other watches for a while (those solid end-links did the trick).

Last week, a fellow redditor was looking for bracelet suggestions, and I offered up the Strapcode as a possibility.

Realising that it was time to get one of these beauties for myself, I did just that...and here are some photos!

The thing really is top-drawer. Easy to install (I don't mind straight ends at all and the fatboy spring-bars that are included fit precisely) and a joy to adjust (I dig the screws over friction pins), I have literally not one complaint.

Highest recommendation!

I have been on the look out for this Orient Daydate homage as I believe it’s been called. I figured out a model#: 2EV03002G and I found an old listing on before they took it off. I would love to know if someone has a source for where I can buy this watch. it’s absolutely stunning and it’s the only non Rolex day date that I enjoy looking at. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

This isn't much cheaper than a GMT Master II, but boy is it pretty. Seiko also make a few kinetic GMT watches, like the SUN025 and the SUN019, which I've heard good things about. You can check out watch videos on youtube for a quick look.

this seiko 5 is a great watch. I have this one and wear it almost every day. I have small wrists and this looks great on them. It is dressy enough for when I wear a button down but also looks great with just some jeans and a t-shirt.

Whatever you get, please let us know!!

You could always go for a Chronograph, although it doesn't have the rotating bezel.


You didn't mention if it had to be a machanical watch? If you're OK with some electronics I'd go for one of Citizens Eco-Drive watches, like the Brycen ( or a divers with rotating bezel like the BN0150-28E (


Eco-drive is powered by the sun, so no batterychanges ever.


If you prefer a purely mechanical watch I suggest the Alpinist. It doesn't have the rotating bezel like a diver (although I has a compass) you get an incredible amount of watch for your money:


Seiko has a similar technology to Eco-Drive called solar.

Graduation present from my parents. Quite snazzy, it is a tad busy! I've also got a leather strap and a 2 piece NATO on the way.
Probably going to pick up a SKX007 next. My pop has got a vintage 6309-7049 which is the same pretty much and I'm quite partial to Seikos as it is!

It is a snap back, it's a little tricky depending on how tight it is. To do this properly you need a [case knife] ( or a sharp screw driver. You will find a small lip/cut-out under the case back, there is only one, so have a close look. Use the knife or screwdriver, it will fit into the Cut out, give it a little twist and it will pop off. Swap out the battery. Now getting the case back on can be a bit tricky. It can take a fair amount of force and you have to keep the caseback parallel to the case. This is made much simpler if you have a [case press] (

Or take it to any jewellery shop that sells Watches and they will do it, but the price can vary a lot ($10 to $20), but where is the fun in that?

Citizen BL8000-54L on a The Grey NATO Grey Nato. Easily my favorite watch and strap in my collection.

u/former_retail_worker · 1 pointr/JapaneseWatches

Such lovely watch, can't justify spending that on this watch so i've opted for the DW-5600E-1VER and ordered a metal bracelet from ebay. Cost me £170 in total.

You can get old-style g-shocks for like $40 if you want something a bit tougher than OP's:

Those first couple of watches you linked will be limited edition. I haven't seen them available to purchase yet, but here's a bit of information on them.

A couple are on Amazon.


The Turtle divers seem to be coming on the market slowly, you can occasionally find them on Amazon but I haven't seen a reliable source for them, at least in the US.

Looks like a Seiko Pilot Chronograph of some sort, but I'm not sure if the exact model. Looks similar to this one, but not exactly the same.

This was the watch that first popped into my head, followed by the Seiko SNN079P2 (no longer in stock on Amazon, but here it is for reference):

Nearly every review complains about the size being smaller than expected (42mm).
