After looking at the many cool pictures of G-Shocks fitted on Zulu straps and how great they looked, I decided to take the plunge and ordered a pair of adapters and a 24mm Maratac Zulu strap from BroadArrow.

For this project, I decided to make a picture tutorial for newbies like me who have never converted to a Zulu. I used my old DW-6600B Frankenwatch because of its nice orange accents and a beefy orange 24mm Zulu strap. The adapters will take straps from 22mm - 24mm, but I figure the broader the better it will look on a G so I chose the 24mm. Note, these adapters won't work on the 4 ring NATO style straps.

Anyway, a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are the pictures. I hope they will prove useful. After the conversion, I must admit the G looks fantastic. I hope someone can show how to fit these on a Frogman next.

Sorry for the modem burners :-!

Not generally a fan of orange but that looks pretty sharp.

Nice work!

Nice work. I'm not a fan of Zulu straps after trying them on some of my analog watches, can't get over how the excess strap sticks out. But that said, you did a nice job on the tutorial. It seems that I have started a bit of a trend on tutorial postings. At least folks aren't making fun of your hairy arms...

Good stuff.
