Watch lovers who are keen to have different straps to wear their timepieces on often like to have this classic design in their collection. The bund strap appeals as it is not only stylish but has a rich and interesting history. It was originally used by German airmen in the Luftwaffe in WW2 for very practical reasons. At high altitude the temperature in unheated planes would fall dramatically. Imagine the cold piece of steel, the watch case, held firmly against your skin and the effect this would have. The pain would simply be unbearable. Instead the leather pad, backing, of the bund strap served to hold the watch case away fro the wearers skin. The other practical reason this worked for aviators and then increasingly ground soldiers was that it stopped perspiration entering the watch case at a time when many watches were not highly water resistant. The leather bund watch strap rapidly became those serving in the forces go to as a watch strap.
This particular strap is perfect for Seiko watches as it comes in both 20mm and 22mm sizes covering the vast majority of Seiko watch models, especially their dive watch range. Bund straps seem to work particularly well with dive watches as shown by the photos of a Rolex Submariner on the strap. Your Seiko will look equally as good, if not better.
High quality leather is used in the watch strap with white stitching that serves to highlight and accentuate and white on the face or hands of the watch. Comfortable, functional and stylish - this leather bund strap is the perfect choice for your Seiko watch.
Coming in at 220mm long, depending on the size of your watch head, it will fit most wrists except the very large.
The fitments on this strap are made from stainless steel which will prevent them form corrosion due to moisture and provides strength - keeping your treasured Seiko watch right where you want it.
