    Maybe black leather would have looked better, but these straps do not look bad at all!


    Cheers,

    I really like the new strap design you made. And how it attaches is very cool. It's interesting to see a watch band with only 1 hole. But since you are the wearer and know the size it's supposed to be one hole works great.

    Great job!

    Awesome new design Iyonk. I really like it.
    It's definitely not ugly. G's are not easy to fit with aftermarket straps. But you have figured out a way to put a leather strap on and make it look great. Awesome accomplishment.
    Only one buckle hole looks great too. Easy to know its a custom strap with only one buckle hole.

    I think it looks great! Very cool!...I actually dig the brown leather with the black watch. It puts a unique G-Shocker spin on a classic color combo.

    Thx Greg and K L.

    It aint no panerai but for now it's one of a kind hehehe since no body in the right mind would wear it haha!

    the leather is very soft and 'breath', i never have problem with smelly leather or sweat... so just want to enjoy this one, may be i'll make a black one someday hehe..


    the previous leather is super comfy also but a bit to thin... this one is thick and balance the thickness of the DW9052...
    its a new life for this G since i rarely wear it at first due to the factory strap diggin' to my wrist and causing discomfort... I like this G since the backlight button is easy to access like DW6600 and DW6900.

    have a great day everybody!
