Hi guys, just trying to get some opinions on an appropriate period-correct strap/bracelet for a newly acquired IAXA dive chronograph (Valjoux 7734 movement) from the late sixties or early seventies. Currently on a NATO, but not feeling it. Lug width is 21mm (odd).
Because of its mix of racing chronograph/diver characteristics I think it could go two ways.
Either a rubber tropic or steel mesh for the diver side or a steel rally bracelet for the chronograph side.
I tend to lean towards a steel option if possible but I am very curious to find out what was OEM on these types of hybrid watches during those decades.
Cheers for your time.
