ABL received this watch a few years ago as a gift.

IMG_3093The strap that came with it finally broke after years of use.  ABL contacted Tokidoki to see if they had any replacement straps.  It was still a good watch with a nice design so it would be a waste to get rid of it.

After a few days, Tokidoki responded and said:

Just make sure that the replacement parts you choose compliments the design.
