    Are third party straps worth bothering with?

    I've seen these on ebay, and was wondering if anyone here has tried one? They work out at roughly half the price of an official Casio item.

    I have a similar if not identical 'aftermarket' Casio strap. Quality wise it's fine. If it's for an everyday use watch I'd give it a go...

    I am sitting at home this week with just a little paperwork to charge work for - probably 4 hours worth. So I need to start something moving to earn a crust.

    I have a trade account, yet to be christened with a supplier of watch straps and can do similar to the eBay item for half that price to forum members.

    I can also get decent quality CR20xx batteries at a very keen price and some simple tools such as spring pin removers.

    This all stemmed from a thread a while back about getting just keepers for watch straps. I realised the other day that I have at least 10 watches that I don't wear due to lack of keepers - which aren't available separately from Casio. So I am going to put in an order for ten of the cheap diver style straps purely for the keepers.

    I will wait a couple of days for anyone who wants to join in the order to pm me, meanwhile I'll firm up costs and - the deal killer - postage - most items will be able to go at large letter rate rather than parcel which should keep the costs down.

    You can see the range of kit available at http://www.lbslondon.co.uk/ but they only deal with UK registered companies - like wot I am

    Any takers?
