Not as el scorchio as the (now OOS) John Lewis £189.50 Ladies' Cocktail Time but you can get the Red SRP853J1 variety for £299 at the moment from Ernest Jones (code EJSAVE50)
Ooh that looks gorgeous!
nice catch on the watch gecko deal, i can suggest the strapcode bracelet, however i sold my alpinist on very soon after I acquired it, found it to be a real lemon of a watch styling wise but to each to their own..
That round-the-houses plan might actually work out! (Buying the strap and selling the other "bits"). There does seem to be demand, but of course, time has passed so it may be a gamble.
Cheers - I'll drop Seiko an email and see if they can supply a spare. My local jewellers said they could try and source one but expected it to be about £60 inc fitting. I pointed out it wasn't a Rolex! Either that or buy the entire strap on eBay and break it for parts lol.... might even make a profit. I tried posting on reddit r/watchexchange but had no success there
