    Still wearing my Pulsar PXH227 model. But I swapped out the surprisingly great, stock, rubber strap with a NATO James Bond strap. (Yeah, yeah, I know. The two grey stripes on black isn't accurate. And the NATO design didn't exist back when "Thunderball" and "Goldfinger" came out. But it's still a good-looking strap.) Seems as though it was made for my Pulsar.

    One thing I didn't like is that Amazon lists the band as being 22mm. Yeah, it's not! It might even be as small as 16mm. I got the 22mm Bond strap from County Comm. It fit. But was tight. And bunched up at the sides. I was in the mall, and popped into the Fossil store. They sell the same exact band as CC. Only their version is just a notch better in quality, and only available in 18mm. I bought two such straps. The 18mm is a better fit. Just a miniscule amount of bunching at one side. I doubt my watch is a 17mm. Possibly a 16mm. The 22mm Zulu strap from Maratac wouldn't fit at all. Too thick. Not to be confused with too wide. The NATO band is very flexible. The Zulu quite a bit more rigid.

    Words of caution:
    Don't go by the band listing on Amazon. Unless a skilled jeweler has confirmed the mm of your particular watch, best not to get aftermarket straps or bands over the internet. And if you have an 18mm compatible watch, and you really want the NATO James Bond strap, get it from Fossil instead of the Maratac version from County Comm. It's truly a notch better in quality for the same price. (Minus the huge shipping rates from CC. Especially if all you want is the strap.)

    I just hope you didn't end up with a 4mm gap like him:

    LOL, nope!

    That's how I know Amazon got it way the Hell wrong. That pic above shows what you get when you fit a thinner strap on a watch that actually takes a 22mm band. My 18mm strap from Fossil is a great fit on my (according to Amazon) 22mm band Pulsar.
