Read the blog post by delugs on Grand Seiko SBGW289 Kirazuri Cherry Blossom and was motivated to score one to dress up my watch. However, there were limited ready stocks. I waited for approximately 3 weeks and when the stock arrived I immediately ordered it. It arrived within 2 days of my order and is just like what is shown on the website. I am satisfied with the quality of the strap and it gives my watch a brand new look.
A nice strap, looks to be well made if a bit on the thin side. You are given the option to purchase a folding clasp with this strap, which I did. I wouldn't recommend this. The folding clasp isn't great at all, you need to up the quality of this as it's way too light & flimsy. It's also not practicle for this strap, it's virtually impossible to put it on your wrist.
The strap with the normal buckle I'm more than happy with.
Strap is fantastic, stitch is great but buckle quality needs improvement. All in all good strap and value for money.
The matte grey strap didn’t disappoint, nice color to match with many light colored dials.
Works well on my Grand Seiko Ryusendo and Reverso. Love the matte finish.
