Godzilla on mesh

In my ongoing search for a suitable steel bracelet for my Godzilla, I came across this shark-mesh bracelet.

Although this bracelet quality is dubious at best, it's the only one I could find in 23mm.

Your feedback is welcome.

Looks real sharp on that strap! I might go as far as to say better than the strap it comes on....IMHO

Hmm..i love mesh. I like the Gojira dial as well. But for some reason, they clash with each other. They're both seeking my eye's attention in different ways.

What makes that case awesome is it's unique shape, finishes and angles. The Zaratsu polishing really makes it one of a kind.

That Alibaba Chinese sweatshop trinket totally cheapens the watch and drowns out that wicked case. You lose the whole effect of the case.

I don't mind swapping the original band, but for another leather one be it shark, alligator, Horween, etc...

Just my opinion obviously. Great looking watch though.

Not bad but that watch calls for a blood red hornback crocodile strap.

What brand is the mesh? Where did you get it?

I have a Citizen Eco-Drive on mesh. It's comfy. Enjoy yours!

That looks amazing. I like the ultra-modern with the vintage mashup vibe. Works incredibly well...

That looks amazing, the Godzilla is by far my favorite Seiko piece and you have done it justice.

Regarding the mesh, could a Breitling 24mm be modified?

Great looking combo!

Love shark mesh. There are certain divers where it just becomes the perfect fit. And they're damn near indestructible.
