Custom Curved Waffle Strap for SKX007 and SRPD "5KX"
[PLEASE NOTE: This is a custom waffle strap made only for the SKX007 and its variants, which includes the new Seiko "5KX" models. It will not be compatible with other 22mm divers. If you need a universal 22mm waffle strap, go to this page.]
A friend in the Seiko modding community (@seikolodi) asked me why I hadn't made a waffle for the SKX00x models which was custom fitted? After thinking about it for a day or two I agreed that this could be really good. We talked about it some more, checked out some prototypes and what you see here is the final result.
If you thought that the gap between your SKX and the strap is just how this world is, think again. This custom version is that well-loved v2. composition that is durable and crazy comfortable. I also tried to choose a length that was good for large or small wrists so I didn't need to make multiple sizes. As always, each strap comes with two "fat boy" spring bars.
