I did!   Ordered it on 25th, received it a few days later via DHL.  Paid $35 CAD for shipping and that included duties!   Crazy fast and cheap shipping. 

It’s a gorgeous watch!  Definitely very impressed with the looks of it.  Very beautiful. 

It has the NH35 Seiko movement, which is pretty cheap...   not ultra accurate compared to many more expensive movements, but, for me, perfectly acceptable.  You get what you pay for...   apparently these are very robust though.

Does that NH35 movement hack?

If you like the look of NATOs, but want more adjustability and something that doesn’t look as bulky, I highly recommend these straps:

They’re expensive though.  This watch blogger site lists a couple cheaper alternatives:
https://twobrokewatchsnobs.com/comparing-3-elastic-watch-straps-budget-choices-or-budget-be-damned/

I found my largest watch always moved around, regardless of which strap I had on there.  But this strap holds it really nicely and is infinitely adjustable.  Super comfortable.
I had seen that article before, and had thought about getting the Nick Mankey one to use with my new Fossil smart watch, but the lead time was forever. Instead I got this "James Bond" looking thing:
https://seals-watches.com/collections/wrist-watch-accessories/products/parachute-style-no-pass-elastic-watch-strap
It's a "no pass" design that doesn't block the heart rate sensor on my watch.  It seemed like a great idea. I'm not super wild about it, unfortunately. I find that the elastic holds the heart rate sensor just a little too tight against my wrist and for some reason that caused an irritation. It was hard to get adjusted properly. Too loose and it doesn't stay attached, too tight and it isn't comfortable.  I have mostly been wearing that watch with the steel bracelet.


Those watches look awesome.  I like the textured dial.  Seiko seems to be putting some really nice textures on some of their dials as well (see below). 

I'm quite enchanted with those ones. I love the fishbowl effect of the domed bezel.

Speaking of texture, they also have these that come with a distressed finish. They're the "Wreck" series, appropriately enough.




They even put some grunge on the lume!
