Uncle Seiko Straps Review:

Post by koimaster » October 16th 2020, 11:36pm

Let me just put it out there: I love Uncle Seiko. I often wish he was my real uncle.
Ok. Whoa.
Allow me to start that again. I love Uncle Seiko. I’m not sure when or how I found out about Uncle Seiko straps but I was immediately intrigued. There are a number of companies (Watch Gecko comes to mind as one) that make aftermarket versions of popular dive straps (tropic and waffle style, e.g.) and bracelets (oysters, jubilees, etc.).

Then there are a few that make aftermarket products specifically for Seiko and other brands. Strapcode is one such brand that makes bracelets especially for Seiko divers (including a few new ones specifically for the new Seiko 5 “5KX” watches that came out recently).

Admittedly, I haven’t handled anything by Watch Gecko or Strapcode but I’ve heard varying things about both brands. Strapcode, for the most part, seems to be a lot of people’s go-to for aftermarket SKX and SRP Turtle bracelets. But then I came across Uncle Seiko, a brand that has Seiko right in its name.
I thought, “Man, if this guy is going to call himself Uncle Seiko he better be bringing it.” Especially considering such aftermarket Seiko heavyweights as Yobokies and, previously, William Jean (known by many as “wjean” [side note: what happened to wjean?]), stepping into this arena seemed like a bold move.
Well, my friends, bring it he did.
