    Best leather straps for under $50?

    I'm looking to pick up 2 or 3 straps for my Seiko dive watch. It's my daily wear watch for the office.

    Hirsch and Crown & Buckle have never steered me wrong at that price point.

    I've no Hirsch straps, but I went heavy into C&B during their Thanksgiving sale, and I've not been disappointed.

    Crown and Buckle straps, which are mostly thicker-style straps, are a good fit for dive watches.

    I've bought a couple of their straps, and the service has been excellent.

    Just FYI, wrist is about 6.3", and their short version straps (105mm / 65mm) fit me well.

    Here's my Seiko on the Cavallino.

    Note that the Cavallino has unfinished edges, and starts off a bit stiffer, compared to the Chevlon, which I also have. The Chevlon is a bit more flexible than the Cavallino, based on the samples I've got.)

    Definately C&B, Hirsch Liberty, Waccex and Sectime have also supplied me with quality affordable straps.
    I should also add that Waccex does not charge for shipping.
    Strap Junkie looks like good value as well, but I haven't purchased from them..

    I make a few options for around that price. Offer Horween leather, nato and zulu hardware, and plenty of stitching color options.
