    Pretty thin. Seems strong enough right now but I've only had it on a day.

    Got a delivery of NATO straps. Changes the look and occasion dramatically!

    Opinion time: Picked this up cheap on e-bay the other day (hasn't arrived yet) and I'm brainstorming band ideas. I'm not going to actually buy one until I have it in my hands, but I'd like to hear some ideas. Right now, I'm thinking blue leather- I have a selection of more conservative watches, this one will be somewhat more fun, so keep that in mind.

    So I finally got my new Seiko. Really nice dress watch, pretty much Mike-proof too. Sapphire crystal and 10bar water resistant. Landed here in SA for around $300, so pushing the poor man's watch limit, but hey, us poor folk can save up sometimes ;)

    The newest addition to my watch collection - Seiko SSC017 solar chronograph. I have a SKX007 in the mail on its way to me but my wife and I were out at Kohl's last night buying baby clothes and I saw this and it really caught my eye. It was on sale and my wife had nearly $200 worth of gift cards she didn't want to use and "Kohl's Bucks" (whatever those are) so it only ended costing me about $100. Now I just need to get a NATO strap for it.
