    Strap suggestions for upcoming vintage

    Hello,

    I just ordered this nice PIRAT vintage watch from ebay that comes with no strap.

    I am therefore looking for a nice leather that would match It.

    I love the look of this "Jean Rousseau" strap but it is way too expensive for me:

    I would like to find something similar for max 20€.
    Do you have any likns that could help?

    Other suggestions for similar colors, or even different styles that you think would look good on this "PIRAT" are welcome.

    Thank you!

    This one is actual lizard, but you could also get a leather strap with similar texture.

    Thank you badbackdan.

    On the website where I found this strap it says it's a pebbled calf leather.
    But searching for strap with lizard patterns give me some good results.

    For exemple these 2 ones:

    I just realized that the link I sent you isn't for a genuine lizard strap. It's "Genuine Italian Leather Embossed Java Lizard Grain".

    Make sure the strap has gold colored clasp, since you gold colored watch case. To best match.
    And yes, as on me, orange strap looks awesome with gold colored watch.

    Thank you for the reminder YuriyV!

    Yes, especially the first strap I posted, It looks fantastic.

    I just can't find something similar, with white stitching.

    Lizard grain is more of a dressy strap, and contrast stitching is more common for sports watches.

    More likely that you will find the contrast stitching with a different type of grain.
