    Help me find strap for vintage watch

    Looking for a nice classic style black leather strap 16mm for my grandpa's watch I got overhauled just recent. It didn't have a strap/band on it. I'd like a 2 pc because it will likely just stay on it as I have many other watches. I want quality but keep in mind it isn't a really expensive watch so keeping it under $80 seems to be realistic. Any help is appreciated as I don't see the options for 16mm as I do 20 etc. Pic of watch below which is when I found it but it is immaculate now, just no new pics.

    This is a nice German strap with bison grain. Also comes in dark brown which may match better. http://www.holbensfinewatchbands.com...leather-black/

    On sports watches yes, but not on dress/dressier pieces - they'd look so much out of place.

    OP - id recommend a black RIOS strap of any style/type of leather you like. I bought one made of Russian leather for a Seiko Cocktail Time that was fantastic on it. Got it off eBay from a seller in the Ukraine for $30 shipped (sells for $45+ from other places).

    Thought I had seen 16 before, but it's been a while. Hirsch and Morellato have great straps too if you can find a style you like.

    Maybe the do make them but none of the ones I clicked on were and it seems that way for most places which I understand. I do appreciate the replies for sure.

    Sorry, but that would look stupid on a vintage dress watch.

    16mm is not as widespread as 18mm, however if you search for the watch band centre shop, you will find a good range of straps. Keep it simple, cheap and plain at first until you get more idea of what you like. Then you can spend more on exotic leather straps if that's the way you want to go.
