    Vintage watch too small? Bund strap is the solution!

    I've got a bund strap for the vintage watch that I've felt was a bit small. I'm really happy with this solution so I've made a video:

    Couldn't get more than 30 seconds into the video, but the strap looks fine.

    A really fat strap (but not a Bund, obviously).

    For some reason pictures that I and mkws uploaded got broken. I edited my post and re-uploaded my pictures and this seemed to fix the issue.

    I've never used a Bund or similar style strap to beef up a watch that I felt was 'too small', but just to participate in this thread, here is a Poljot Sportivnie (which many people would regard as 'small' for a man's watch) on a Gagarin strap:
