    Tuna1138: interesting to here you have had good servie from seiko uk.

    Is this the website : http://seikoservice.co.uk/

    I sent in a seiko kinetic on the 4th of novemner and have struggled to get much communication from
    them.
    So far i have a reference number but it seems i need a username and pass to use that which they
    have not provided.

    how did the system work for you?

    thanks
    Martin

    Tuna1138: ok different letter to me

    It has been me who has instigated any communication.

    Got a preInvoice so maybe that is why.
    It says how much they expect it to cost.

    Emailed them again to see if they can clarify things

    thanks

    Obviously our circumstances are a little different,
    mine was a warranty 'repair' simple fix I guess as it was only a bit of dust/lint under the crystal
    hope you get sorted soon

    very happy with this, which has been firmly clamped to the wrist since it arrived on Wednesday. Any suggestions for alternative straps gratefully accepted, given the 19mm lug width. Would be interested to know what fellow owners use.

    Great choice, congratulations. I love the 039.

    As an owner of an SLA021, I can recommend a look over Uncle Seiko's straps. I bought their version of the waffle style similar to yours and I'm very pleased with it. Choices at 19mm will be limited, if it were me, I'd keep that on the stock strap you have on it, am I right in thinking it's silicone ? Think Seiko got it right there, their silicones feel great and they offer much more flexibility in fit due the the closely spaced holes, better than you'll find on aftermarket jobs.

    Try wjean straps. Iíve heard they are a softer compound to the Uncle Seiko variants and are more comfortable. I just ordered a wjean waffle at 19mm for a SLA017 myself.

    Agreed. The Uncle Seiko straps are not very comfortable

    Cheers for the comments. Agreed that the stock strap looks spot on, only draw back is the length, with the tall coming right around the back of my wrist. Not sure what itís made of, at a guess I would say rubber.
