Strap Guide written by @wonger.bonger.
When Ken approached me to do a strap guide for the Polerouter, I wanted to do something different. As we all know, the Polerouter looks great on many different straps. However, I wanted to really show that the Polerouter can do so much better than just different shades of brown and black. It’s easy to pair the Polerouter with a nice matte brown croc strap and call it a day. However, for this strap guide, I took it as a challenge to find unexpected pairings that normally one wouldn’t expect the Polerouter to pull off. Here are my choices.

The SBGW231 is without a doubt my favorite Grand Seiko watch. It’s a beautifully executed watch, with impeccable mirror polishing on the case and the dial. The way light bounces off the applied indices and three hands is fascinating and stays true to Grand Seiko’s decades old design language. While the SBGW231 does not feature an exotic dial like the Grand Seiko Snowflake and other modern models, its simple and creamy dial makes it a strap monster, and a watch which can be easily dressed down or up. I usually pair the watch with Delugs’ Matte Black Alligator Signature Strap, but I wanted to explore different leather types, styles and colors. In this guide, I look at 5 different straps from Delugs for the Grand Seiko SBGW231.
