This showed up from the ebay fairy today. Needs a good cleaning and a few scratches removed but since it cost less than my last haricut, I think I did alright. I need to pair it with a nice looking band but am not sure what would look best to me. I was thinking of going with one of the bomber leather bands from strappedfortime that I saw someone else post on here but I'm not completely sold on it for this watch (since the band would then cost a lot more than the actual watch!). So, what say you? What would you pair this one with?

When playing in the affordable end of the swimming pool, this happens... a lot! You get use to it. I certainly have.

As for what strap. Perhaps a croco grain cow leather (to reduce cost) strap in a deep chocolate brown with white stitch, which would accent the dial color nicely. They can be had pretty cheaply from strap sellers on the bay for ~$15.

My thoughts exactly.

I'll wade around on the shallow end of the interwebz for a bit and see what floats by. I knew the strap/bracelet would double the cost of this one but I would like to avoid quadrupling it (for now haha). Thanks for the suggestions.

The case seems to have the same shape as the SNK669 (pic borrowed from here), for example, and may originally have had a steel bracelet.
Steel could look good with this case.

This probably isn't what you had in mind, but I would personally throw a bright colored NATO strap on it. You could get a few different styles and change the look of the watch every day for the price of a decent leather band

I lately bought this Pontiac an added the Hirsh Forest strap. I think it's a nice strap for an older watch.

I definitely considered the NATO strap and might pick one of those up for it as well. The face of this watch is actually silver (looks white in the poor pic I provided) so that is a consideration.

I'd go Rush or Pink Floyd.
