: Super Engineer II + Seiko Monster

01-21-2015, 03:56 PM
Picked up a Seiko Monster recently (SRP311) and decided it needed a new bracelet. I managed to get the original bracelet sized properly and didn't lose any collars (I am not a fan). I wore it for a week and constantly checked the bracelet to make sure one of the collars didn't fall out (okay, I'm anal). I had purchased a Super Engineer II before and loved what it did for my Victorinox Mach 6.
Strapcode had a 20mm black model and now I have one too. Heck of a lot easier to size. ( ( ( (

Oh, did I mention, it's extremely comfortable. No it's not cinched super tight, just my contortion to shoot a wrist selfie. I do wear my watches tight enough that they don't move.

That's a really nice combo, particularly for that watch. Be careful wearing your watches so tight though, compression of nerves there can't be too good. If it works for you though, it works. :biggrin:

I'm in with archieGoodwin as u get older wearing a strap real tight can cause nerve problems in ur wrist . Trust me I know , having problem with the wrist and finger(s). My stainless straps are loose and my leather straps are not to tight where the watch swings around the wrist . Just saying... Also I'm over 50 and been wearing a very long time

My main concern is weight. If I feel a watch move it's irritating to me. YMMV Don't like to feel a watch sliding. That said, the Nautica I'm wearing this week comes in at at 199 grams/7 oz and I can insert my index finger between the band and my wrist. My Seiko comes in at 187 g / 6.6 oz. I can still insert my little finger as it is sized a tad tighter than the Nautica. The second image exaggerates the tightness as I cocked my wrist as I took the shot. I appreciate your concern, thanks.
