Is it wise?

I just sized and attached an aftermarket FKM rubber strap designed for an Omega Sea Master to my Wise Hitman.

My first impression was: sh*t it doesn’t fit… but it feals great on the wrist and the colours match really well.

If the strap had a straight edge, the gap would be bigger and more pronounced right?

What do you think? The dream is dead, mind the gap and get a new strap Or although not ideal,all things considered the gap isn’t a dealbreaker?

Spacing looks uniform and I don't see how that is any worse than a straight end, which is also fine.

Im on the fence. The main thing is do you find it acceptable or does it bother you? Nobody else is going to notice.

I’m on the fence too. You are right that no one other than me is going to notice. It doesn’t look bad, it’s just not the look I was hoping for. Thanks for the input.

If you were hoping for it to be flush against the case, I guess I see your disappointment, but I think all things considered it fits well. Yes, there's a gap, but it's uniform and follows the same curve.

Get straight ends. Now it's looking like your trying to have a flush fit and it doesn't work. I think it's worse then straight ends.

The strap I put on was a gift. I had a look on the wise website and the fitted strap they offer doesn’t have a deployment clasp, but it will definitely give me the look I was going for. Thanks for the tip!

I put a strap for a 5KX on one of my Orients and theres a tiny gap that i forgave instantly because it looks good to me. You can also wear it and keep looking. That's a part of thr fun for me.

Thanks for sharing. Your gap is way smaller then mine. I’ll wear it as is for now and consider getting a proper fitted one in the future.
