    Recommendations for leather strap?

    Hi All,

    Picked up a Omega Aqua Terra 41mm earlier this year - with the date at the 6'oclock window - it comes with a Nato strap and looking to replace it with a black leather strap.
    Had a look at my local dealer and they advertise the Omega branded straps at £200!!! which sounds a little expensive.

    I've had a look on amazon/etsy/ebay and they have different sizes e.g 21mm strap, 20mm strap, 19mm strap.

    Main questions are:

    What size should I pick up for a 41mm?
    Any recommendations for what company to use, or website etc to purchase from?

    The 41.5mm has a 20mm lug width so you will have no problem finding a leather strap to fit. OEM Omega straps do cost a lot but I think they’re worth it. You wouldn’t put cheap tyres on a Porsche if you bought one...? However... there are many great strap makers whom you can buy from @degriffstraps on Instagram I recommend. Also check out crown and buckle, bulangandsons, bas&lokes

    Other members will be along soon enough with more recommendation.

    Thanks for the quick feedback, I've heard the official ones are top quality.
    You mention 41.5mm, would this be a different model to the 41mm I have, or are they essentially the same?

    If anyone has any UK recommendations for strap suppliers it'd be appreciated to - cheaper for delivery.

    I just ordered a Bas & Lokes and waiting for it to arrive. I would add Greg Stevens Design to the list. I love his stuff.

    I'm on the other side of the pond but I've had nothing but good experiences with Watchobsession. I highly recommend the Jean Paul Menicucci straps if you're interested in the vintage look. WO also has a large selection of Hirsch straps.

    41.5mm and 41mm both have a 20mm lug width.
