    The best way to stop the button from sticking is to remove it and clean the button and the hole is resides in. Have a look on Google images to find the type of strap you want for the watch, there are probably more than one original style, then keep an eye on ebay or similar. I think your watch has 18mm lugs but the original style strap will be wider than that at after the lugs close to the watch head. Is the model number 6138-0030?

    Hi,

    Nice looking piece. As you can see below it was originally on a bracelet.



    If I was looking for a strap I think I'd look at something in black with a red or orange stitch. But with a budget in mind you could go for a cheap Nato in complimentary colours.



    Regards,

    I found this on eBay. Although the clasp is signed, I think it is an aftermarket fake. Finding an authentic bracelet in good condition will probably take some patience.

    Regarding a leather, rubber, or nylon strap, I think the watch will look a little funny because of the 18mm lug spacing.

    These bracelets are difficult to find. Mine is a JDM version, and I finally found a JDM bracelet on eBay that's the right match for its original one.
