This watch still gets a lot of compliments.

Sweet. Thanks.

Does the watch still need to wound daily? I would hate that and probably stop wearing it if it started pulling stunts like that...

Will all the seiko 5s act like that? Or is it just the one you have i.e. is it a defect?

This was my attempt at it, i used a an Orient Star Standard
WZ0031DV, although this is discontinued now, they do show up from time to time on ebay from 350 to 500. I chose it because it was closest in size and shape​
as the aqua Terra, and the own in-house movement of the Orient star gives it a uniqueness. the Strap is red brown from Hirsch, about 40 dollars and the clasp was from an old Tag i changed a while ago. The Orient star standard is an excellent quality watch weight and feel is a build quality close to the Omega with a decent in-house movement, but at 500 dollar price rather than 3000.

Hi all,

I fell in love with the look of this watch, and intend to customize a seiko SNE049 to have a similar result. Any advice on straps I could use for it ? Some of the links in the discussion are broken / items discontinued, and this specific color looks hard to find. Any advice is more than welcome (with possible shipping to France) :)

Thanks !

Matt

Hirsch straps are your best bet for straps, they come in many different colors and quality, from20 dollars to 300 dollars. Deployment clasps are available on e bay, 20 to 30 dollars for a respectable one, avoid the 5 dollar ones

i believe the omega is using a burgundy Hirsch
