    Help finding less expensive strap

    Hello. First time starting a thread, long time lurker...

    Anyway, I love the velour leather nomos strap but at $75 it is a bit higher than I want to spend right now.

    Does anyone know where I could find something like this for closer to 25 or 30 dollars? Thanks.

    Might see what Crown and Buckle has to offer that could be similar but less expensive, as one suggestion.

    Thanks Brad. The fluco bands looks like it is exactly what I'm looking for. Do you own any? I'm wondering what the quality is like.

    Like others have said, you may try crown and buckle - they seem to have what I would consider a good mid level range of bands in the $25-40 price point. Hirsch may have some too, but they generally run a little more. If you can find reviews, they will be helpful.

    I would recommend going for a decent one if you can, especially if it is going on a nicer watch. I have bought cheaper bands before and there can be a big difference in quality from hopes/expectations to what you get. The last thing you want is for the band to get stretched, distorted, or worse. Then you are stuck buying a $25 band and another one later.
