Recently picked up a Seiko SNK809. I like the size ~37mm but I feel the 18mm strap makes it look smaller.
I saw Aurich's exact watch and the thicker strap gives it a little more presence and I like the rawness of the leather. Unfortunately his is home made and I've found custom makers but prices easily start at 100+...more than the watch itself!
The Hirsch Liberty is close to the style I'm looking for and seems to by my only option.
So are there any 'affordable' strap makers out there or alternatives like the Hirsch Liberty?
