    Looking for a particular type of strap.

    Hello all.

    I've got a PVD coated Radiomir Homage and I'm looking for a calf/buffalo strap in XL length that looks like the OEM style strap as far as its thiness goes. I've currently got a black buffalo strap with black stitching, but there are two things that bug me about it. First I think that its just too thick for the watch. I'd be different if i was putting it on my 177 or a 111/112 style case where I think thick straps look great, but the Radiomir cases are a bit thinner and I think that it calls for a thinner (or at least tapered towards the stitching) strap.

    Also I think that the 26mm buckle is a bit too large. I've got two options for this one... i can either get a tapered strap and go down to a 22 or 24mm buckle, or I can get a 26mm thumbnail buckle. Problem is that I can't seem to find a PVD coated 26mm thumbnail?

    Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks in advance

    Picture for inspiration.

    Lloyd @ Watch prince possibly? or maybe Stan @ panatime.

    Panatime doesn't seem to have anything that will fit the bill. They have a black Croc strap, but I'm not into those...

    I haven't tried Lloyd though. How does one get in touch with him?
