    You mean with a sewn in buckle? If so, that would have to be a custom made job. If you just want a canvas strap you can find them in tons of places then just order a bronze buckle from there if you don't have one. Unfortunately finding bronze watch hardware outside of custom made stuff is basically impossible unless you are ordering a Zulu strap.

    Might also look on etsy.com

    Some of their vendors do custom straps with bronze buckles.

    Check they've clear-coated the buckle. The buckle will be in contact with your skin, and will therefore tend to leave a little green, especially on a hot day. There's not a lot that will do so, but still, better to pay a bit of attention. My Archimede Pilot has a bronze case and bronze buckle. The buckle's showing a lot of green on the lower edges of the sides...altho not much on the wrist. (Just took it off; it's been my wearer of choice for the last couple days.)

    I see that a lot on my Zelos Abyss because they wanted the buckle to be able to patina too so it has no sealing. I find since it is mostly on the underside of the buckle just every 2-3 wears you can lightly scrape the bottom of the buckle with a fingernail and the green stuff just comes right off.

    @Kingcarlos, Don't really have any custom maker I can suggest right off the top of my head. My advice would just be to check this forum for threads by custom strap makers and look for pics with buckles. The makers who do custom buckles tend to want you to know it since that is not a super common thing. Just remember bronze watches are already sort of a niche watch collector group, and most bronze watches already come with a matching bronze buckle so they rarely order custom made jobs.

    You could buy a bronze buckle on EBAY and send it to a custom canvas strap maker like Drunk Art, Micah or Drew. I think those guys are all up to sewing in a buckle for you while making you a strap. There are others on WUS but these are my favorites.
