    strap identification help on a lecoultre

    Hi, can anyone help to identify the strap type on this lecoultre? And if possible where to purchase it?

    They're called pilot watch straps and are widely available on eBay and specialist online strap companies. If one wanted to be really 'correct' about things, then it's probably not the 'correct' style for a dress watch. Obviously if you like it, then that's great. But it wouldn't have been the sort of thing fitted to it when first sold (more likely a more dressy style, perhaps a croc or alligator).

    Also, as you can see, they're made for 20-22mm lugs and so in this instance, the strap has been cut to fit. They're more often seen on larger watches, such as pilot's watches and some chronographs. The LeCoultre looks to have 18mm lug spacing.

    Thanks for the information. The pilot or flieger straps that I've seen online does not have that metal part that is connected to the lugs. Does it mean that I would have to have it custom made?

    Maybe.... try widening your search? I doubt this is something you will find on ebay.There's also a custom strap section on this forum and no doubt someone there can sort you out if you can't find what you're looking for.
