    Help identifying strap from vintage watch

    Hi,

    I found this strap on an old Felca Seascoper I found in a thrift shop. I'm not very familiar with the watch, but there is some information on the Internet (nice two crown super compressor, this particular one in dire need of service/restoration). The strap is odd. It fits the watch poorly, and I'm curious what it's originally from. I haven't found a watch it works with, partly due to the thickness of the plastic end piece. It's a pretty cool strap - I'm looking forward to wearing it if I can get anything to sit snugly! (After a thorough washing, it... it was pretty gross. ) It feels nylon, but two distinct layers sewn together. End pieces seem to be one piece, with strap sewn around - not spring bars. I'd have to rip the stitching to be sure, though.

    The strap:


    The buckle logo:


    The odd plastic end piece:


    And with the watch I found it on - if you squint you'll see the strap is too small for the lugs:



    Any pointers appreciated.

    E with an arrow in circle on the buckle? The strap comes from a contemporary Timex Expedition.

    Aha, thank you! I feel more comfortable just throwing it in the washing machine now.
