    Looking for 21mm watch straps

    I just bought an oris model 733-7670-4051LS which has a 21mm lug. I'm not really into the aligator strap. I would like to get both a brown calf skin strap and a perlon strap. I'm guessing I could go 22mm with perlon but I'm not sure about leather. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I use a 22mm strap on my Seiko Flightmaster (21mm lug width) and it works fine. I used a pair of pliers to just gently squeeze the spring bar end a little bit, just to make it easier to install. Looks just fine. 1mm is very small and leather is flexible. Anyways, below is the strap I have and attached are photos of my watch

    WATCH BAND SPECIALIST - Watch straps and more from Watchbandcenter.com

    Pretty good assortment of odd sizes, which are not common. Another possibility is a bund strap...they have several that include a few different-width lug mounts:



    and here, you can go slightly smaller for easier mount/dismount (the only real problem with going with the size up).

    After that, the crafter-sellers who cut to order. Etsy has quite a few sellers. Martu has a wide variety of materials and straps, and will cut to length and width on most. This'd look good on a distressed leather or leather/canvas, I think.

    On the perlon...if you go one-piece, then yes, you can go 22. If you go 2 piece single weave, you probably can go 22. If you go 2 piece, double weave...I'm not sure that would work. The downside with 20mm is you see a weeeee bit o' the spring bar. If you wanted to go with a Eulit Palma Pacific, which is 2 piece double weave, I'd say either be prepared to eat the cost (not that much) or get one that you can repurpose to a different watch. This is WUS, so presumably this should not be a problem.
