    After Market Straps

    Looking for a good aftermarket strap for my Aquis, any suggestions?

    Your only option is to go custom. Do a search on WUS and you'll find pictures of lots of custom straps members have had made for their Aquis.

    You can also use a regular strap and carefully notch it yourself. Mine came out nicely and they almost look custom, unless you look very close. I used an X-acto knife and measured before I started cutting. The first one was good and the second even better. Results depends on the kind of strap you're modifying. There are some guides for notching straps so best to search for that.

    For a Nato, this seems to be a good one: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f22/fin...t-1442034.html

    Have a look on the Combat Straps site but be warned - they do some lovely stuff.

    I came close to firing off an offer on this when I saw it for sale but I was in the middle of working out a deal on a Propilot. Nice job on those straps. I need to try this for my Aquis. I'm getting 26 mm outside lug-to-lug and 11mm inside. Sound right to you?

    I sold my Aquis without the leather straps. Send me a PM if anyone is interested. Will put them up for sale in the appropriate forum soon.

    edit: straps have been sold.

    John Toshi in the UK makes great straps for nearly any DIver, or other watch for that matter. If you don't know about him - check him out. I found him to be exceptionally accommodating- even making a 4-part strap for my Sinn
