Just acquired a seiko ssc 019 and looking for suggestions re a band or replacement bracelet? I don't much like the seiko bracelet...too shiny. I'm leaning to a band to dumb it down a bit????

Do you have access to anyone who can bead blast the Seiko bracelet for you? You could always brush the center links yourself to take off the polished look. Seiko makes nice bracelets imo, that's why I'd suggest keeping it and putting a different finish on it. Nice pickup btw @!<$

Strapcode super oyster if they make one for that watch. Love the one on my SKX007.

Edit: screws not pins also. About $60

I would keep the OEM bracelet and put something else on. Brushing it can turn out fine but may also look janky and it's nice to have if you ever sell the watch.


Can always do straight end, but the fitted Strapcode appear to be sold out for the Solar diver, including eBay, Island Watch and Amazon.

If you want a bracelet with fitted endlinks:

Seiko rubber straps are stiff as a board imo and the price is freakin ridiculous. Then again I'm a cheap bastard.
The one above from Long Island Watch says 'Soft Pliable' in the item title, so it is likely softer/silicone version. Same with the blue one as it has the same rough texture I've seen on the silicone with metal keeper.

Yea those may be different with the metal keeper versus the rubber keeper. I purchased an all rubber Seiko strap recently and had to do the old hot water in a glass treatment to get it to form to the wrist faster.

Yep. I'd put the stock bracelet away - can't stand those folded endlinks anyway. The newer Seiko diver straps with the metal keepers feel pretty damn nice, the metal keepers are cool, and a blue strap would look great on that watch IMO.

The blue Seiko strap at LIW is the strap that came with the 'Nemo'. It's pliable, comfortable, and would look freakin' great on that watch. The Yabokies BOR would look great, too. There are lots of brushed and polished bracelets out there, the Strapcodes are nice, and sold out as a testament, but they're never gone for long.
