    Vintage 'Delvina Geneve' - suggestions for a suitable strap / bracelet

    Hi All,

    I recently purchased this vintage 'Delvina Geneve' watch it looks like a 60s / 70s design I would like some suggestions on a suitable strap / bracelet for a watch of this age and style.

    Should it be leather, stainless steel?

    A nice style that would be good in my opinion with any kind of heavy duty, rubber, leather, metal. Black or s.s. Not a thin leather.

    Added comment: I have a fine gold and silver Mexican with 2 colors that sort of match the watch that I might use.

    In my opinion, this type of watch (and others as well) should always be on vintage beads of rice bands....but that's just me, I'm addicted to this band! Name:  BOR.jpg

    I have spent a while looking at different options then I remembered the old Rolex Oysterquartz style braclet....

    The Delvina is not even close to the quality of a Rolex however the style of the Oysterquartz bracelet may work?
    Does Anyone know of any bracelets which are similar to that of the Oysterquartz? or the name of this type of bracelet?
