    Aftermarket Strap Thickness for Oris XXL (Valjoux 7750 movement)

    Hey Fellow Watch Lovers,

    So I recently purchased an Oris XXL 7515. It comes on a crocodile leather strap, however I am not a fan of the croco leather and also I think that it is too thin given the thickness of the watch case (14mm). It has the valjoux 7750 movement.

    In light of this, I have been searching for a thick, quality leather strap to place on the watch. What do you think would be an appropriate thickness for a leather strap on a watch this thick? I think that I probably would not want to go below 3.5mm. I have attached pics of the watch below. Thoughts on color and stitching would be appreciated too.

    Thanks!

    I'm liking the combo as it is now. Had a look but I didn't see anything I liked more - sorry.

    Di-Modell Chronissimo is a terrific strap. I have it on my thick Louis Erard chrono - the combination is just perfect, and its thickness (7mm at the thickest part) has a lot to do with it.

    Unfortunately, the only colors are black and dark brown (picture below) - I would go with dark brown for your watch.

    Nice! Does the 7mm strap feel at all to be too thick for you? Other than its thickest portion, what is the thickness of it along the sides?

    No, it doesn't - as you can see, the thickest part is more of a ridge, which enhances it visually.

    Thickness at the ends of the strap is 4mm, and it tapers gradually.

    One thing to be aware of is that at the "standard" length, it's a rather long strap - I had to exchange mine for "short" version, which is just right for 7" wrist.
