I recently received this Seiko SBDX023 and a Strapcode bracelet for it. I have owned the SBDX001 previously but this one is a keeper.

Great watch and one of my favorites. I own the SLA021 and the SLA023. I have previously owned the SLA019, green dial, and I may circle around and pick it up. I am going to look at the bracelet as it looks nice.

I love the watch. The SC bracelet imo does not look good on it. Enjoy it!

Whether you like the look of it is, of course, a matter of opinion. I like it quite a lot. I don't care for the polished bits on the links with this watch. Technically the Strapcode bracelet fits perfectly at the lugs and is very well made with screwed together solid SS links that I prefer to the Seiko bracelet. I think the Strapcode bracelet is heavier duty than the Seiko and that goes better with this watch, IMO. I have the GS SBGA031 with a similar bracelet and I like the look and feel of it better on that watch than this one.

Vincent you are right as long as you like it then that is all that matters. In one of the pics it looks like the endlinks are sticking up higher than the watch case. Are you using the stock spring bars?
