    Straps on a g-shock?

    I'm looking at getting a full metal g-shock since they're quite unique.
    I was planning to get the gold one, but the all black was a lot more appealing in the flesh.

    However, the end links on the metal bracelet are too wide for me, so I'd need to wear it on some sort of strap.
    G-Shock does offer a resin strap along with the metal bracelet, but I'm pretty sure I'd need a short strap or something custom to make it more comfortable.

    So...what strap options are available for g-shocks?

    well for about 20 you can get adopters and then use nato's

    for example


    their are different types too
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Natos are quite interesting....

    But does anyone make resin straps (or other materials) for g-shocks in short length?

    can't think of one off the top of my head but with in reason you could modify any one you wanted to fit .. did see somewhere one that had a leather strap cut and modified to fit ...

    to my understanding the straps was designed to be strong long lasting and water proof so that is what a g shock is so think to the large thats all you get

    The resin straps are pretty easy to shorten. Cut a little off the end and touch it up with fine sandpaper. Looks great and fits better.
