    BC-3 ADV. Love this watch. Any band recommendations please?

    Hi everyone-

    Love the watch and it's performing well. Not a big fan of the buckle type band however. Anyone know of a good source and possibly a band you have bought that works well with this watch and has a clasp style or similar? Saw a pic of a Oris Dual time and it looked like it might have a leather type band but with a clasp.... Has to be black of course. And a little more formal.
    Metal is not out of the question but light and comfortable is the key. Thanks - any info is appreciated!Name:  5876_735_7641_47_64_rs.png

    Oris do a black leather strap for the BC3 which I THINK is a deployant type clasp but you would need to speak to an AD to be sure. The alternative is to have a word with a custom strap maker and see if they can knock something up that meets your criteria.

    It looks like it has standard lugs to me (unlike a lot of Oris watches) so the sky is the limit as far as aftermarket straps go. Virtually any type of standard tange buckle strap can be retrofitted with a generic deployant clasp, so you don't need to limit yourself to looking strictly at deployant strap/buckle combinations.

    Do you know what the lug spacing is?

    Thanks to ya both for the replies ..... 22mm. I have a basic Bonetto (sp?) on my Luminox which I guess would work. The OEM bracelets etc. seem pretty expensive so I'll keep looking on line. Nothing local but the Bonetto rubber w/ clasp...

    Have a sort of feeling that back in the day Oris did a similar sort of strap. They no longer do it so the information is of no use. The strap does look well on the watch whether it cost $35 or $350.

    Thanks. A bracelet would be another option but not sure I need to go there yet. The band is smooth on the other side so you have two choices. I looked up OEM types and I'm just not going to spend 200 bucks + on a rubber band... I really like how light the combination is. I'm wearing it a lot more then I did my Omega PO.
