“Black Watchbands” Cedar Park, 2018

こんばんは。How’s it going?

I was checking out some videos about the really cool Orient Triton watch today, when another video was recommended which was all about the Seiko SNK809. It got me interested in trying on the original black watchband that came with my Seiko, and when I replaced the band, I fell in love with it again. As much as I love NATO and ZULU bands, the Seiko SNK809 has a clear display back (so you can see the inner workings of the watch) and it’s a shame to have it covered by the NATO-style watch band. So, I went back to the conventional band and have been enjoying quite a bit.

I also noticed that although I have lots of different color watch bands, I keep going back to plain black. I think it just looks so nice. Simple and clean on the wrist. So, after trying out many bands, I have to say that a plain black nylon/canvas strap is what I like best.

I hope you had a nice day!
