    Help me pick a strap

    I just bought limited edition (500) Bulova A-15 NOS. For a few reasons, I'd like a different strap/band, and I'm looking for ideas.

    To my mind, it could go one of two ways. I don't think it's a very dressy watch, it has some color to it, and it has some history behind it. In the latter case, a simple leather strap seems appropriate (though not the faux distressed style it comes with), and that's easy enough. I think my preference is to play off the color a bit.

    I imagine what I'm looking for is a NATO style strap. My first priority is quality, second is color. The key challenge is that the lugs are 18mm and I want to avoid black. Any suggestions?

    The watch arrived today. Not only do I not like the faux distressed leather strap, but it's clearly made for people much larger than myself! I'm on the second to last hole... I robbed some other watches, and cobbled together an actual 18mm distressed leather strap (it may actually be from the 40s) with an appropriate (albeit cheap) stainless buckle.
