I thought I saw that wotancraft had one.

They do good straps.
“To absent friends, lost loves, old gods, and the season of mists; and may each and every one of us always give the devil his due.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman

I bought a cheap watch from a crazy man
Floating down canal
It doesn't use numbers or moving hands
It always just says now
Now you may be thinking that I was had
But this watch is never wrong
And If I have trouble the warranty said
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

Size? Simona used to have a nice red. Micah has red, but it’s fairly bright.

Thanks guys. I need a semi dressy 20mm so that let’s out the major players, all of whom I’ve bought great straps from.
I also checked out Etsy and found several nice ones. Some talented guys form Vietnam, Croatia, etc.

For semi dressy you can try Cordovan #4 or Cordovan #8. #4 is more reddish.

Thanks. That Bordeaux is nice. I just remembered that I have a Cordovan #8 in the strap box.

Just ordered an alligator strap from him. I usually go with peter.watchacc but he was out of grey alligator. Also, Peter charges $199. This one was $115.

My VN strap came in. Here it is compared to the original Tourby black alligator (the longer strap, with the buckle). It's a better length (the Tourby was too long), the pattern is nicer, and the thickness/flexibility is better. I also like the dark grey. Overall, he's a good source for custom alligator straps.

Thanks for the recommendation, Nick and Paul. Just ordered 4 new straps from Duc in VN. Will report back when they come in. Two for my SBGJ001 and two for my incoming Topper Laco.

This thread was in the back of my mind when I bought the Bell Diver.

I picked up a red leather (not dark) Geckota strap on WUS.


Looks like it might work with two watches, just not sure I have the stones to wear it.

I'd vote Scurfa yes, U1 no. Try out red canvas on both.
