    Farer Lander watch strap recommendations

    Hi all

    I have a Farer Lander, but I'm unhappy with the strap it shipped with.

    Do you have any suggestions? colours, brands etc, that you think would suit it?

    A Nomos cordovan strap should look good on it IMO. You can buy it directly in their shop. If you want something a bit more vintagey, the Windup shop has a few nice looking straps.

    For other styles and more rough and textured look, I quite like Colareb straps (available on Amazon). If you want a rubber strap I highly recommend the Hirsch pure, simply the most comfortable strap I've worn

    I have the same watch and was also unhappy with the strap. I ordered a vachette strap from Veblenist and am very happy with it.

    The straps are made to order, which means a turnaround time of a couple of weeks. On the upside, the leather choices are fantastic, you can select a taper, thread style and color, etc.

    Well, I let the original Barenia Tan leather strap acquire some patina and I think it looks nice an rugged.

    I think it looks nice on the Farer Universal Milanese strap.

    Wear that which you feel is groovy, get down with your bad self, and shake your money maker if it makes sense for you to do so.

    How about a grey or light brown suede?

    I think the Rios1931 shell cordovan straps are tough to beat for the price, and the cognac color would go well with this IMO.

    I recently picked one up for about $55 shipped off eBay.

    Re: Farer Lander watch strap recommendations

    Thanks for the replies all. The nomos strap is nice, but a bit pricey. in the end i found a Fluco Beige suede strap for 12 dollars. in fairness it was on some odd web side called Jaffy Shop..... so if it actually arrives it will be a miracle, but 12 dollars isn't much.
