    Dressy strap for this vintage Omega?

    Just got this nice 1958 Omega. I plan to wear as a dress watch (suits, tuxedo).
    I'd like to keep the cost of the strap under $30 if possible.

    Are there any straps you recommend? I did some searching and quickly got overwhelmed.
    Should I have glossy or matte? Plain or animal skin?

    Thanks

    Not sure what lug size that is but how about something simple like this? Looks thin enough to go with a vintage.

    I own a couple of vintage Omegas and I think that lizard (either genuine or embossed leather) looks really good with a vintage watch. I've attached a link to the ones I buy for my watches

    For your watch I think black would look particularly nice.

    Those are nice too!! With 7.5" wrists would I get medium or long?

    Very nice watch. I'd have something made in black or brown gator.

    I picked up a Hirsch plain black. I thought about gator but didn't see one that wasn't shiny.

    Do you have any pictures of your vintage with lizard?
