    Sorry I missed your posts. Yep, it is the SNX111. I replaced the strap on mine but I've heard of at least one place that sells them with a leather strap. It's pretty easy to just get yourself whatever leather strap you like and get the metal one replaced. Looks pretty good with either black or brown leather.

    If I had to pick one for wearing (not for selling and then buy other nice things with the money), I'd take the Timex in a heartbeat.


    Thanks. I did a bit of research and found this site which lists a ton of Seiko 5 dress watches: http://m.gmarket.co.kr/Goods/GoodsDetailInfo.asp?goodscode=186294820
    and bought this one which I like even better than the SNX111: http://luxlass.cafe24.com/MINISHOP/lux/SEIKO/a53.htm
    But you pointed me in this direction, so thanks!

    That's a very nice one! I might have gone for it myself :)

    Post pics when you put it on the leather strap.

    I know this has been discussed a fair amount, but any recommendations on where to get NATO (or fabric) bands other than ebay or some good sellers? I seem to find a hard time finding many patterns for a 22mm.
