Strap Suggestions Appreciated for Omega Banana 166.068

Post by Dualmonitors » Fri Jul 27, 2018 8:51 pm

Dear All:

I have a new watch (to me) -- an Omega Banana, 166.068. May I please ask for strap suggestions? I have a very small wrist for a guy: 6", so most standard length straps, or diving straps (those are often extra long) will not work for me. NATOs can, but if you have suggestions that are too long for me, I may be able to find a custom strap maker to make a similar one based on the picture(s) of your suggested strap.

Colorful straps are great! More plain, monochromatic straps can also be great. I may get more than one so I may swap them for a fresh look.

Please show me so I may get some good ideas! Thank you in advance.

These might work as these are "cut to trim to size" types of rubber straps with a deployant: (note please that i have a very small wrist of 6")

the black might allow the watch to "pop" a bit more. the gray might match the gray on the dial.

This atypical black PVD might be a bit too shiny and black for this particular watch. Or do you guys think it's ok?

For convenience and reference, here's the watch again:

You may want to start with an intro thread...

I think it looks good on the one you have it on.

I’d wear it on a grey nato. The one you have looks great too.

Tapatalk tells me someone was a bad boy, but then changed their mind and decided to play nice!

I think the NATO you have it on is a great match. You could try one of the ToxicNATOs Magnum XL straps as an option as well.

Is this a discussion thread? I get confused.
