    Designer Strap Manufacturers

    I'm looking for a new leather strap (possibly in white/double stitching) for my Omega Speedy Pro Moonphase.

    Having searched this forum I can't really find anything in the more 'upmarket' class of straps manufactured by known brands for their quality & prestige. Some straps equivalent to the Omega, Rolex, or Panerai reputation of watches?

    Any hints for renowned strap manufacturers?

    For the really high-end stuff, try ABP Paris:

    Good luck!

    Thank you for the welcome and the ABP-Paris link :). But woah! What a choice :). Without going through the entire selection, roughly how much am I looking at for a white plain leather strap for my Omega? I realise there are various types of leather, etc. I'm just looking for an average.

    Also, what difference is there to buying a strap from Omega direct?

    As you can see, I am strap clueless (this is my first 'prestigious watch').

    Thanks for giving me a bit of an insight into designs & pricing Wycombe :). Any other manufacturers you (or anyone else) could recommend other than ABP?

    Also, bit of a long-shot, but I'll be in Vegas over Christmas, anywhere there I could pick a nice strap up and get it fitted at the same time (I'm from the UK btw)?

    If you're going to Vegas, go to Tourneau in the Caesar Forum Shops. Then across the street to the Venetian and the other hotel attached to it. Lots of watch shops there. Between those, you should be able to find a strap :)
