    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.

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

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

    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? [​IMG]

    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.

    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?
