Can anyone identify the ref. no. of this?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Looks to be a Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra--can't tell what diameter (e.g., 38.5 vs 41.5)--and I don't know the ref. number offhand, though. Also can't tell if it's blue or black faced. Really sharp watch with the strap; I have a blue faced on bracelet I don't wear much... but might if it had that strap...
It looks like this with a different band. http://www.authenticwatches.com/omaqter258.htmlI agree...hence why I want know
Very similar, but not that watch in the link. The watch pictured is an automatic (Co-Axial movement)--the watch linked is a quartz.
Anyone have a recommendation on where to find good straps? I have a Seiko SKX007 that I wear the majority of the time on weekends and when I'm not wearing a suit at work. I have a forest green NATO strap on it now that is on its last leg (fraying and coming apart due to constant trips into the salty Atlantic Ocean). Can't remember where I bought the current strap. I'm looking for one that isn't extremely bulky. I'd also consider other types (leather, metal bracelet, etc.) although I haven't seen any I really like on this particular watch.
that watch looks good on the NATO's and bracelet it comes with. You can try a rubber strap or a dark brown strap. Ebay has thousands of straps available. Talking about Seiko's, this is so much watch for the money it's almost like you are stealing from Seiko:

Nice looking Seiko. What model is that?
Got one identical to it, and it is the Seiko that broke the camel's back for me. This was my second Seiko, and this one runs down about 3 or 4 hours after wearing all day, and through the day, it loses about an hour of time! The first Seiko (can't remember the model) was a $250 quartz model, that just quit. It was taken to a jeweler for what I though was a new battery and wasn't it at all. It was then sent back to Seiko and I was quote $300+ to return it to working order.
