Nice watch, I have the SKX007 and wear it regularly as my beach & pool watch.  Wear it in good health.

YOu can't go wrong with their watches. They are great quality and look beautiful in person. I had a pilot chrono and sold it to few years back to help fund a new Rolex. I have regretted it ever since and have it on my wish list for my 40th birthday next year.

Solid, solid, solid. Excellent watches; home-made cases (Ickler makes them for many other manufacturers as well); very good for the price.

Bought one of these. Decent quality for the money. Cheapest I found.

I'm looking at one of these styles (in different patterns) from maratac:

500

Thinking particularly about the zulu (also called RAF style) or two piece as I don't like the bulk of the G10 Nato strap.

Nice shirt!

No comment required for the 1963. Iconic.

I picked up this Alpha submariner with the green bezel after seeing a similar model earlier in the forum, but consistent with many reviews I've seen, the bracelet is rickety. I was thinking of putting a dark brown leather strap on it. Opinions or better suggestions?

That's weird. Ships worldwide except Canada. What's up with that? Something wrong to ship to Canada? The mail strike is over.

Where'd you get that exact strap? I tried your search, but I just get nylon straps coming up and others that look like yours look like cheaper versions of yours.

Where did you buy your Alpha?

I got it on ebay for (I think) a good price of $50. Most ones I've seen on there have the black bezel, but this one just showed up and I snagged it. Any suggestions as to what I should do to replace the bracelet?
