Wow this might be my first watch, I really like the green. It's a shame the strap doesn't sound to be any good.
Hey, I'm the guy who reviewed the watch in the YouTube video. Don't let the strap steer you away from picking this up; its a great watch and the strap is easily remedied with a leather nato or something from one of the strap sites out there. Id grab one at this price if I already didn't have one.
@Ty_Max @andrew.bb Thanks for pointing this out. Certainly a good point, however we're not in the business of tricking customers into purchasing bad products. We definitely want to encourage a healthy discussion about the product, which includes the good and bad points. I think most people won't be surprised when they receive a mediocre leather strap. Seiko isn't known for great leather straps because they have such a high value proposition in almost all other areas. I think the strap is on par with many other Seikos in the entry/mid level tier. Even entry level Tissots and Hamiltons in the $400-500 range have okay straps as well. I think they are a step above Seiko but they also have a lower bang for buck ratio overall.
Well said. Im new (this is my first drop) But I was well aware of the of Seiko strap/bracelet value proposition. You get a great watch for the price, and usually replace the strap. Not the worst trade off IMO.
