    23mm strap for a blue watch?

    I'm looking for a 23mm leather strap for a watch with a dark blue dial. 23mm straps are hard to find especially one with the right shade of brown or blue. Any suggestions?

    A 24mm will fit great in the 23mm lug section, possibly way more options available with the more generic 24mm size.

    Agreed... might just be best to get a 24mm band to fit.

    Out of my own curiosity, what watch takes a 23mm band?

    I think the strap looks great and so does the watch, but I could never get over the squished up part of the strap. That being said, for a 2mm difference yours doesn't look bad at all.

    I agree totally with that on the squished up part with a 2mm difference, that would drive me insane, like seeing a woman wearing a pair of pants 3 sizes to small, Madame muffin top, 1mm is not as noticeable though.
    Combo looks great though.

    24mm strap will be almost unnoticeable on 23mm lugs.

    If you want a 23 try watchbandcenter.com for one suggestion.
