Hi Everyone,

First post . . . so go easy with me!

I'm thinking of purchasing an old Zodiac Sea Ghost watch, but the strap looks like it's seen better days, so I'd like to be able to change with something else - whether that be leather or nato. However, I'm not sure of the fitting size - the strap looks a specialized one which perhaps only Zodiac can sell. Does anyone know if these straps can be changed? and how easily please.

I've added a picture so it may help.

Thanks in advance for assistance.

Cheers Nick

the strap for this watch is a custom strap (see pic)... you can search for an OEM,which many have tried,or have a custom strap maker make one for you...a NATO will never work on that watch as the OEM strap is wider at the case and has a smaller indent/knotched in the middle of the strap which connects to the lugs via the springbar...good luck!

Thanks very much for the reply here - yes I feared the same. I'll try as you say. By the way do you have a feel for this watch - is it a good watch and investment for the right price?

Cheers Nick I'm not sure what you mean by investment?...but if you like it then go for it,nice watch,but most watch guys are not into quartz watches,personally I would be looking for something that can use conventional straps and with an automatic/mechanical movement in the same price range...

Thank you for that answer. I'll have a think on your advice now.
