had this in mind when I modded a Seiko Alba Hypertech watch with a G Shock yellow Frogman strap, long enough to fit his wrist! 45mm bezel width, tough enough to wear on a bike.. Very Happy

This watch looks like it's doing 150MPH, while just
being on the wrist Thian ! Duff's biker watch hybrid made... Icon_biggrin ..The shape on that
case, along with the overall MEAN look is GREAT !!!
While the G-Shock strap couldn't be cooler ! Duff's biker watch hybrid made... Icon_cool

thanks, Tom...the Hypertech series of Alba is a vintage one and seldom seen, even in Japan.

Most Japanese knew/know of the Casio resin G Shocks, but not the Seiko Alba Hypertech sporty line. I bought it used to inspect its quality and features ...and concluded it was just as strongly built as the Gs. Interesting that the Frogman NOS yellow strap (i had bought it to resell 6 six ago!) fits perfectly on this Hypertech bezel! The original strap was black resin.

Many guys bought this color combo in the newer G Shock Frogman (Yellow strap on black bezel).
Not sure if Duff has the guts to wear such a 'gaudy' color combo........but it will now be donated to his collection! ahahaha!

I'm sure your cahones are fine....after years of biking! maybe a bit squashed though...hehehe!
Since you are in Florida, the yellow strap is perfect!
Just set it to Florida time/date for you....interesting watch...the 10 spot pusher is a lock/unlock button, which seems to lock your settings in to avoid accidental hitting of the time/mode buttons.
To adjust the time, you hit the unlock pusher, hold the 2 spot pusher in, and wait for the seconds numbers to blink, telling you that you are in time adjusting mode. Then you just hold 4 spot pusher and set your desired time. To set the minutes or hours, you clik the the 2 pusher again and watch for the blinking....
Anyways, gonna get a box now at the mall.... Very Happy
