    I've eventually found the perfect strap for my 70's Seiko 7000-8000. It's a Di-Modell Bali alligator grain:

    I think this is a pretty perfect match...
    Seiko Cocktail Time, old version, on a Dark Blue leather strap from Breitling. The strap has a matt finish, and it is usually paired with 20mm lug titanium models like the old aerospace but I think it works beautifully here.

    Little shot trying to capture the matt finish.

    I don't imagine this is the 'perfect' strap, but it nicely replaces the original. Alligator, chestnut brown, thin and subtle. I would have had to wait months for a replacement from Omega.



    From the Belgium firm 'Lic'.

    I really like this! Is there a name for the outer track of the dial? Not seen one with such numbering before, restarting at every hour marker.

    I was looking at this model earlier today. And a dark blue leather is exactly the strap Iíd choose for it. Thatís pretty much perfect for me. Must resist buying yet another watch...

    Sub on a Nato

    I think this works? It makes it look more utilitarian and takes the emphasis off the lugs, in my eyes anyway!

    Once the thought's in your head... resistance is futile!
    Seriously great watch for the money though. I don't think you'd regret it.

    Re-waxed an old Horween Toshi and decided to fit it to my '74 5513. iPhone camera doesn't pick up the brown and makes it look almost black!

    Not usually a fan of the camo style straps, but strangely that one works perfectly to my eyes.
