“Leather Band” Cedar Park, 2018

こんばんは。How’s it going?

So the other day I was looking at some reviews of the Seiko SNK809 and one of them featured a watch with a leather band and I thought it looked pretty good. I did a little online shopping for one but then thought that I might take the 20mm band that is on my Timex Weekender and put it on the Seiko. The problem is that the Seiko takes an 18mm band, but just to see what the watch face might look like with leather, I squeezed the 20mm band onto the smaller watch. And it turns out that it not only looks good (in my opinion), but the 20mm width matches the watch better than the skinnier 18mm. As an added bonus, the leather band is much more comfortable than the nylon Zulu strap.

So, I am going to wear the smaller SNK809 at home and then wear the SKX007 when I am at work. I guess sometimes I’ll wear the smaller watch outside too. 😝 I suppose it’s an effort to keep both watches wound, and I’ll try to keep the dates accurate too! I’m curious to see how it works out. But the “new” leather band on the Seiko SNK809 gives it a totally different look. It’s almost like having a brand new watch. 😀

I hope you had a nice day!
