Seiko bracelet on Maraton SAR

Recently the battery in my really good Seiko SBCM023 finally quit, after eight years, exactly as it was supposed to. But when I tried to get the battery replaced I was told the watch was broken...

Earlier the same week I'd asked for a suitable bracelet for my Marathon SAR. Didn't find one, but bought a rubber strap for it (which is now on my Sinn 656). Reminded of the Seiko, which I had removed the bracelet from before turn it in, I tested its bracelet on the SAR. It fits remarkably well and looks right.

Unfortunately, it turns out the SAR is a lot heavier, and the divers' extension part put too much pressure on my wrist, so that's not the right solution. But it was an interesting experiment.
