I am looking for aftermarket straps for a nighthawk, someone posted this pic in this thread. Any idea where I can find a similar strap? Thanks in advance

That looks unreal. I have a Citizen Skyhawk. I wonder if I could pull off that sort of strap with mine.

Looks like http://www.panatime.com/ is where the strap below was found.

http://www.panatime.com/22mm-straps.html couldnt find the orange strap with black stitch.

Danny, post the link if you can find the strap you posted.

Still think the nighthawk looks better with the orange and that strap is top notch.

The small second hand is the hacking second hand, the large is part of the chrnograph.

The small minute dial is part of the chrono timer function, the chrono is a one-lap around and then resets automatically - not a 12-hour chrono like the Valjoux 7750.

Did I answer your question?

I think so. I was looking for a daily wearer that had: Chronograph, Second Time Zone and Diver Bezel, and thought the Seiko might be in contention, but I think it's the display of a time in a second time zone that is missing on that watch.

Rotate the bezel so the 60 mark indicates 12 on the desired second time zone.
It's how the original Rolex GMT's worked.
