Thread: Would like to see photos of light sunburst dials with glossy straps

    Would like to see photos of light sunburst dials with glossy straps

    My latest Seiko I think might like this combination (silver dial, dark brown Croc-style strap) but could do with seeing photos before I decide....

    Normally go for scruffy muted leather, so I'm outside my comfort zone!

    Couldn't you just swap the strap?

    I've only had a couple glossy straps, but took rubbing alcohol to them to dull the finish down

    Not a glossy strap, but here it goes. Just did this mod the other day, with some leftover parts.

    Gray Sunburst dial, made more bursty by the dome'd crystal.

    I'm not really looking for answers to the question "do you think this works?" as I'm already quite tempted, but would rather see pictures combining the two first.

    But to satiate curiosity, the sunburst watch (currently sitting not especially happily on my only spare 18mm strap) and the glossy strap I've seen (I think this particular example is a perhaps a bit thick at 5mm at the watch)

    Wonder if de-coloured photos might be less confusing

    That strap makes my tiny, battered, chipped 1961 Seiko very happy. Right now I'm wearing that watch on a black perlon - feels much better but doesn't give the watch the charm that the pink strap gives it
