    Having trouble finding a leather strap...HELP needed..

    Ok, so I love the SS strap on my Mido All Dial Chronometer but I want to switch it up for a leather one. The problem is I have not been able to find the proper strap on any internet sites and I believe this particular watch will require something custom because the pins are held in by 3 prongs on both sides. There are leather straps on eBay specifically for the Mido All Dial but everyone I find is 23 mm at the lugs and I believe my watch is 20 mm given it is only a 42 mm case. Anyway, if anyone knows of anywhere I can either have a strap custom made or where I can find a leather strap specifically made for this watch let me know. Any help from a fellow WIS would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Give Jeanna a call at Stone Creek Straps. She does fantastic custom work.

    would really love a leather one. Would that rubber strap fit the Mido All Dial?

    Lapse in intelligence. Where do you think I can purchase that strap?

    Thanks for the help. I still am somewhat of a newbie. Good to have veteran help. Cheers.

    I was also wondering, Mike, if you had any experience with this particular SS band. It seems the pin isnt going to be easy to get to. Would you think it would be possible to swap out the strap? Any additional advice?

    Of course you can. Maybe not you but any watchmaker can. Otherwise it would be not pssoble to replace it with a rubber strap. MIDO has an excellent after sales service, just e-mail them and ask them where to get the rubber strap replaced close to your place. No big deal I guess.
    Kind regards
