    Challenge: identify that strap

    Hey Internet, can you help me identify this strap (or an alternative of the exact color leather)? I have a vintage rose gold zenith cal 146d that would look killer on this color strap.



    Thanks!

    Can't help with identification, but this Tech-Swiss is really close, color-wise:

    Lots of straps out there very similar. Try Hirsch, Hadley-Roma, and you can also look at the the sticky at the top of this forum at the list of on line strap vendors you can also review for ideas.

    Not sure about the strap brand, but the leather looks like it could be Horween Natural Essex.

    That's the thing - not really. OP, as I understand, is looking for a very particular pinkish-beige hue, which is not all that common. Most of the light-colored beige or brown straps don't have anything pink about them.

    Right on Jacob e. It's a tough one.

    Crazyfingers - natural Essex is a good suggestion. Very close. Maybe I'll try that and see if it scratches the itch (unless the new owner of that Patek PMs me the maker)
