    I don't think the black coating fit the vintage look of the watch, which is really cool.

    Looks slick.

    any better pictures of that strap from the first post?
    like what I can see. Goes great with that piece too

    Here you go, it's actually a strap that's aimed at the woman's market but it has a great Terminator vibe to it and being $100+ strap that was being cleared out at 75% off I couldn't leave it behind.
