I like the rugged-looking, but distressed strap

Did you "age" it or did it come that way? I have to say the Turtle Frenzy around here is highly entertaining! Cazalea

Hi Cazalea, I hope you know that for me you are the single reason why the Seiko-thing got out of comtrol So good to hear you enjoy the contribution. To your question: The strap is a miltat, that comes as distressed as shown. The bezel insert I distressed ... 

I usually "distress" my watches by banging them on door frames, or dropping them on the floor

I have lots of dangerous chemicals around the house (including bleach) but I've never intentionally spilled it on my watches. I must try that someday! Cazalea

Hi, I am also a regular in scatching my watches, I find it much easier to take, if I start with some intentional distress, everything afterwards is just fine. As they say, the first cut is the deepest... You should try for sure. C.
