    Closed loop aviator straps by Tourby or Fluco?

    Hi, I'm very interested in purchasing on of these but am having trouble getting the right measurements.

    I have a 7" wrist but like a long tail. My preferred length to get the right tail length is about 150-160mm.

    Does anyone know of any aviators that fit in this range?

    Thanks!

    I have seen XL aviator straps, (140mm+) once in a while at watchbandcenter.com

    So I ended up with the Tourby closed loop. It's quite a bit longer than I expected but I think I pull it off.

    Not a bad looking Strap.
    do you know the length of the long Piece ? (looks more than 150 mm).
    I looked into the FLUCO, Di-Modell, Rios1931, they all are 170 mm Long. way too long for my taste.

    BTW, how Thick is the strap ?

    The long piece is about 175mm. Also BTW I think the Tourby and the Fluco are the same. I had a Fluco and was worried it was too long so I returned and tried the Tourby. No difference really. Here are some more pics sorry for cell
