I have the skx013, so I thought an extra skx is redundant
I had it swapped for the snzf

A year later someone offered to buy off my skx013 for a reasonable price.

So both skxes got offloaded. Not in hurry to get one again.

nomadwatchworks emery ones are nice around rm120+

if budget below rm50 can get from shopee just search 20mm watch straps and you can buy based on the review ratings

if you want a local leather strap maker can try Aming Leathercraft on facebook.. you could also probably ask him to stamp your friend's initials on the strap

Aming leathercraft strap:
Rm80. The strap is stiff as cardboard. I dunno it will break in nicely or not. He say it is vegan tan leather.

all new unworn leather straps will be stiff..

how I break it in once I get a new one is to strap it as tight as possible on this type of hard shell pillow and store it

or you could purposely bend the strap to a wrist shape to loosen it too

Black because it matches with anything you throw in, be it straps or clothing.

I did have plans for a blackout stealth skx using case from crystaltimes, but not now. Some other time. Bajet takdak. The cost for such a mod can get me a stock mm200 so I don't have the reason to justify spending.

Bought the sapphires from crystaltimes.net. then got it swapped by Steven of wah foong.

Not sure if cttimes carries sapphire for cocktail. Alternatively you can also ask if thongsia can order.
