That should look pretty nice on there.  I like the vintage genuine shark bands, and think they compliment most dive watches well.  I have a few with contrasting stitch colors on divers in my collection  ;)

That's a cool looking band and it will look vintage for sure.  If it ends up not working out definately check out a NATO Strap.  I just got one and put on my black and orange SeaWolf.  I love the look of it, also it is in keeping with vintage dive watches.  NATO straps pop up in James Bond and other spy shows and movies of the 60's and 70's.  Check out my post if you want to see it, but you can't go wrong either way.

I have a "military" light  green NATO strap, but lately I have been looking for a regimental NATO strap, with colors matching the light green hands. Something like this: http://www.singularstraps.se/shop/images/92/?240,240,1865302745.

Or what about this, i like the light green: 130433856468.

What one of the first two pictures on this: 140397213628.

My Seawolf could need a bit of freshing up.

Yeah......  I actually prefer the White dial and ceramic bezel over the Black dial and metal bezel!  Just looks better to me!

Great looking watch, and it looks exceptionally pristine, no brassing on bezel edge visible in the image.

I finally found a fairly decent looking enamel bezel SW myself (but in black dial).  I have to say that those bluish gray enamel bezels are exceptionally beautiful, much better in person than they usually appear in photos
