Good quality and well built. However, the nature of the tropic design is the tappering at the end of the strap in both thickness and width. The keepers are too loose to maintain at the same initial position. They keep sliding. End result, ugly gapping at the overlapping and the end of the strap keeps becoming 'longer'. Quite messy.
I would suggest to keep the aesthetic part of the strap but to design the keepers to be smaller/tighter. Throw in springbar with fat tip for Seiko diver watch fans.
Another point : Potential buyers need to bear in mind that the nature of tropic strap. It is an old design, so, distance between holes is big, so micro adjustment is not good.
Got my Seiko SBDC 101 a Tropic strap, very nice and definitely worth what you paid for.
This tropic strap looks to be exactly the same finish and quality compared to much more expensive ones sold elsewhere. Highly recommended!
My first time buying from NWW. I bought 4 various straps, this was one of them. Really high quality and comfortable. Incredible value for the price. The only reason I took one star away is that given that the band tapers at one end, the loop doesn't sit far enough up (tightly) so it leaves a bit of the band loose which tends to get caught in shirt sleeves & trouser pockets. Minor niggle only.
Tropic is very pleasant and comfortable on hand. It wears very well and the quality looks very good. I am satisfied.
