The friend who gave me these watches also imported a huge batch of NATO straps and he gave me a set with the watches.

I was also searching for Nato straps, the ones from abroad were running to around 10US$ each. then I chanced on the seller "fundeals" on ebay india. Besides him there are also other sellers. try this link http://www.ebay.in/sch/Straps-Bands-/179575/i.html
I've bought four in various sizes and colours at 299/- each, and can confirm they're really good.

My recent acquisition, the one i was desperate to get for quiet some time. Off course didn't like the strap which came with the watch, so upgraded to NATO strap. And this looks classic

i own a Casio Databank Calculator Series watch which looks tech savvy from outside with it's black strap and black casing.

But in digital watch category i feel the best watch that would suite for both professional duty and casual outing is the Steel finish based Casio DB 380-1.

Here is the link to that watch, Attaching a picture of the watch for signifying it's beauty and elegance

Pickup another watch Basis Peak. More of a fitness gadget. Like the interface and results are nearly accurate.

I am looking for a 23mm black metallic bracelet for a Citizen. Any suggestions where I can find? I am not able to get any till date. I see only 22 or 24. But no 23mm.

Thanks. Before posting I was looking at Amazon and I saw that they had the same product which Strapcode shows. But they dont ship it to India. Will look for others. Looks like the 23mm is a genuine problem!

I am not a watch enthusiast, I own a few Swatches, a few Casios, a citizen ecodrive, a fossil but after I bought my favourite watch SKAGEN, Titanium 809XLTBN, I almost stopped wearing any other watch.

Bought it online from Creation watches Singapore, and incredibly it was delivered without any duties, though delivery by Fedex was delayed by a week due to Diwali.
If it has a 30 meter water resistance, you're pushing it. I suggest you don't.

Cheers,

Hi jay. No, as you'll see from the pic posted, the Seiko snzg07 has 100m water resistance. Been swimming about 20 times and I wash the watch and nylon strap every few days.

I have had Seiko watches for the last 40 years. The waterproofing as stated is 100m, and I have never had any water leak. It used to be on my wrist 24x7, bathing swimming - no problems.
