Looks way better than the "stock" strap... but then I would say that as I swapped out my strap for one similar to yours. Nice job

Agreed..the original strap looks and feels cheap and should be replaced...even if it's just for another black strap

The 007 and the Sumo look the biz. Good watches and great value. But, due to my advanced age, the stigma of cheap and cheerful, crappy Japanese '70s watches remains. Stupid, I know. The GS and numerous others, incl. the ones mentioned are amazing watches. I guess it's a bit like when Hondas were considered sewing machines.

The Black or Blue Sumo is in my final 5 for <$1000 diver.

I agree, the green-dial Alpinist is absolutely gorgeous, I have it too. Got mine from Higuchi (who does take credit card directly). Just bought my second Seiko, this time a sports watch, unfortunately with the 5 movement, but couldn't resist as I love the clean look of it:

I thought it's toyota that makes sewing machines.

Picked up a Seiko 5 Military for a casual wear. Also stopped at J.Crew today and picked up a couple straps to add some color. Not bad for $20.00 for 2.

The new straps look nice. What did the original strap look like?

I have the watch shown above (same watch as others have posted in this thread). I am contemplating changing the black strap to a dark brown as shown above. Main reason I am doing this is because I wear brown shoes 4 out of 5 times and I just like brown more than black. However, this is my business watch and was wondering if in that context it makes a difference?

No, not really. Dark brown should be fine.

Does anyone have experience with ebay seller Timewares? And re Seiko mods, i.e. Yobokies mods, do you just purchase a new dial and install it yourself or do you buy the watch already modified?
