Thread: Opinions on strap for my Skyhawk

  1. #1

    Opinions on strap for my Skyhawk

    I am thinking of swapping out the metal black PVD bracelet on my Citizen Skyhawk. It is just a tad too loose.


    How do you guys think it would look on this Panatime MB-1 strap? I need some objective opinions.

    If it's loose, maybe take out a link or two?

    I tried taking out one link and it was too tight!

    No micro adjustment on the clasp?

    i'm not a fan of PAM straps and especially not the buckles, but that's just my opinion, you buy whatever YOU like...

    Excellent suggestion mate. That would indeed look cool.

    if you check ebay, you have tons of black mesh straps. They start from 5$ and go up to about 175$. I think the mesh is more durable than a leather strap, water resistant, and last but not least, extreme adjustable...
    Good luck in choosing!

    Now, I am not a fan of black metal. I think that strap could look quite nice. I have had a couple of straps made to order by Toshi and am very happy with them. Just not so great if you're swimming.....
