20mm ANGUS-J Louis 316L Stainless Steel Watch Bracelet for Seiko Mini Turtles SRPC35, Brushed, V-Clasp SS201820B074

Seiko’s Zimbe limited edition model watches are solely manufactured in Thailand which was first introduced back in 2016 from the idea by Thailand’s managing director of Seiko, Harumitsu Akashi, but later replaced with Katsumi Kubota in 2018.

More round and sturdy solid link Angus-J Louis watch bracelet is an upgraded version of Super-J Louis watch bracelet. All links composed by scaled up solid 316L stainless steel beads and well-built precise screws, the more robust it is. New Screw-in adjustable details with open end on both sides can lower the risk of the screw loosening during dynamic.

Besides Japan and China, Thailand was next in line with one of greatest influential market in the Asia Pacific region. The target market for Seiko’s Zimbe limited model watches are towards the Generation “Y” age group since they represent more than 30% of the population in Thailand. Customer from generation “Y” are classified as a group with high purchasing power as they prefer to choose watches from designs and functions matching their lifestyle.

Super-O 3D Boyer watch bracelet is a new breakthrough of our Super-O Boyer Collection. Same as Super-O Boyer, this Super-O 3D Boyer composed of 3 flat and solid 316L stainless steel units plus highlighted 3D effect curved solid end pieces perfectly fit Seiko Mini Turtles SRPC35K1, SRPC37K1, SRPC39K1, and SRPC41K1 models.

One of the latest release from Seiko’s Zimbe 10 collections are the Green (SRPD17K1) and Yellow (SRPD19K1) Zimbe Mini-Turtles. (999 pieces each color) As a new product, the two shiny and bright colors that were chosen on these selected limited editions watches could not have come at a better time then now since spring is literally just around the corner.

You would think the cost for these two models would be be much higher, seeing as they are limited editions (Thailand exclusive).

Cordura Fabric 1000D, the majority of US Army uniforms are constructed with CORDURA fabric – durable, lightweight and comfortable. Reinforced lockstitch round holes to extend durability of the watch strap. This light weight watch band is a good choice for matching with most of the military watches.

The price we picked up the two pieces were actually almost the same as the other current released mini turtles which is anywhere from 450.00 USD-500.00 USD. If you do not have a mini turtle in your watch collection , the Green (SRPD17K1) and Yellow (SRPD19K1) mini turtles watches are certainly a watch that one should consider adding to their collection.

3M Reflective Thread Yarn has retro-reflectivity, helps the eye perceive objects in low-light conditions when illuminated by a light source. A large amount of reflected light is returned directly to the original light source. MiLTAT G10 military watch straps Glow-in-the-Dark collection is a crossover of nylon thread and 3M Reflective thread. These 3M strips reflect light to make you visible to cars or bikes, high visibility just like glow in the dark. Studies suggest that in the dark, in car headlights a reflective product is more visible than a fluorescent one.
