    Look at 3CTactical's post here. It's the 54th post on that thread. His watch looks absolutely amazing with a para band.

    I see its a Casio but I wasn't sure that it would fit the same way as my G-Shock as it doesn't look anything like that. Thanks for the link

    I have, but depending on what Gshock model you have, it may be almost impossible. I had to specially modify the lugs for the spring bars on this one to get the paracord to fit. Here's a pic:

    you guys inspired me. had some foliage paracord lying around and after a couple hrs just finished this one, took a couple tries to get sizing right. but i dig it so far. my original nylon band had broke, and ive been looking for a new band. didnt occur to me that paracord would work.

    That's a sexy lookin' band. Care to give your recipe for making it? Looks like you just wove it but I don't know if I'm missing anything

    Nichud,

    Thanks for posting that link man. I 'cobbled' (joke from another thread) this band together last weekend. My original band was shot.
