    Leather Strap for Armida A8

    Hey Guys,

    I just got an Armida A8 with a green dial. Love the watch but want a nice leather strap that can support the Armida Brass Buckle. I've been to the Strap Site sticky and there are tons of good sites out there but not many have brass hardware, especially large size like the Armida buckle. Do you have any recommendations for a nice brown leather strap that I can buy?

    Thanks,

    Ciro

    You're best bet is to go custom. Cloverstraps is super reasonable and just tell him what you want and he can accommodate the large buckle and tang.

    No need to go custom on a 22mm strap they are widely available.

    This Horween Chromexcel in dark green should match the watch pretty well. It's available in other colors as well if that's too much green for you.

    Chromexcel is a great pull-up leather that will develop a very nice patina.

    The leather looks so much better IMO; great choice! I used to be anti-leather-on-diver but what works, works.
