Resizing a new bracelet on a Deepth Charge

Fancied a diver in my small, but growing collection and was tempted by the remarkably good price of this little watch. Resized quite easily and am very happy with it, I shall try it on a NATO type strap soon as I feel it would look the part any suggestions for bgood suppliers of quality straps in the UK?

Also picked up a solar Timex field style piece on brown leather strap from the same suppliers. Quick delivery and was very happy with the price for both coming in at a little over 2 hundred. Watch Shop in UK , I will have to keep an eye open for future bargain's from them. #wruw

Love the look of Depth Charge watches.  Yours looks very cool.  For straps in the UK try WatchWatchWatch.  I got a fantastic quality 24mm silicone last week for £8.99 and a really quick turn around. Here it is on my Nite Hawk.

Nice, thanks for the heads up much appreciated. I have a couple of Nites both variants of the Icon. But the Hawk was at one point very much on my Radar. It's a great looking and rugged piece.👍

No not Sinn, I was just using a spring bar tool I have which came with a steel bracelet I got for my 857utc.

No this is a brand from the WatchShop an on line store in the UK. Retails at £160 ish but they had a 25%code sale so I grabbed it , seems well finished and has a Seiko NH38 movement with ghost date position. I just liked it's style and did not have a diving watch in my small collection, was looking for something cost effective and it's own thing to put on a NATO strap and have as an everyday beater. Think it is made in china most likely.

Nite are great watches , British company and design. Manufactured in China, I understand. I have owned 3, only got 2 now as my first automatic Icon was stolen a few weeks after getting it in 2016ish.

I think it means Gaseous Tritium Light Source, in other words tritium tubes with a twenty five year half-life. Radiation on your wrist.  There's even a tiny little trifoil on the case back.😃

Ah. K, I knew what tritium tubes were, just haven't seen that abbreviation yet. Thanks, mate.
