    20mm XS leather band recommendations

    I'm looking for a replacement band for my wife's watch (stainless case gold bezel)-preferably a leather band. I've had a hard time tracking down options in XS in the style she's looking for (broken in leather, pilot style, etc). Any suggestions?

    I have a small wrist and have to get smaller straps. I usually go the custom route, but there are companies that offer stock short straps. Watch Band Center in Germany has a pretty big selection of straps, and you may be able to find a short one in the style she wants. For custom, there are countless choices; I've had good straps from Bas & Lokes, and they have some nice distressed look straps. Greg Stevens Design is another well regarded custom strap maker, and there are many others. Another suggestion I have is to take a look at the Nomos watch website and go to their strap section. You can get a 20mm (for their Tangomat watch) Horween shell cordovan strap in a short length for a reasonable price (for shell cordovan), and they will ship it to you free. Shell cordovan may not be the exact look she wants, but the strap will pretty much last forever, and I think the shell cordovan would look great against the steel and gold of her watch. Good luck.

    Great ideas, thank you!
