Stream26, great watch. I wear a watch everyday, and Seiko and Orient are also my favorite brands.

Here is my Hamilton KHAKI Automatic on a Barton Nato Band.

I have found Barton Bands to have a great selection of colors and materials, and all their bands use their quick release spring bars so it’s really easy to swap.
I have a few of them now that I swap out with the OD green canvas band that came on one of my Citizens. They're some of the most comfortable watch bands I've ever worn.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

Those look pretty good, and they aren't too short either for people with large wrists as too many are...

Exactly right! I have 8.5" wrists and they fit perfectly. Always have trouble finding nice long straps. I do cut the keeper strap off to try and keep the watch closer to my wrist. Works good for me.

Same here..

Almost all standard type bands are WAY too short.

Unlike you folks I'm the opposite; wider yet smaller wrist circumference for me. It depends on my local weather/mood ;)

Bracelets are easy to size to my wrist; I prefer NATOs from BluShark & Moosestrap (soft seatbelt quality) + Leather NATOs as well; Barton silicon at times (quick release hardware and they come in shorter lengths); Horween leather on two piece bands where the tag end doesn't hang over too much as well.
