    Looking for a specific strap for my Nomos Orion 38 datum

    Hey guys,

    I saw these pictures and fell instantly in love.
    Could anybody identify it, or provide me an alternative?
    I also saw that the lug-width is 19mm, what would be more suitable of this size is not available, an 18mm or a 20mm?

    I always would go for the 19mm strap, everything else does not fit.

    Strap looks similar to the Uhrenarmband 19mm Alligator Louisiana by Graf (Buckle 18 mm).
    Moving your post to Straps & Bracelets, simply the bett place for your query.
    Kind regards
    Mike

    Check watchbandcenter.com or sirtoli.com as they have similar looking straps.

    In spite of what stuffler,mike says, 18mm and 20mm will fit in 19mm lugs. 18mm will leave a 1mm gap where you'll be able to see the spring bars, which doesn't bother some people. You can get 20mm straps into 19mm lugs. It's a tight fit, but you can definitely do it. I put 18mm straps on one of my vintage watches with 17mm lugs.

    Obviously 19mm would be best, but you can definitely do 20mm.

    I have one in 20/18mm and 19/16mm. I always go with the exact lug width instead of squeezing a larger strap.

    Here is a photo I took of the 20mm on Zenith. It's a tad bit lighter in person (depending on lighting), but not as light as the strap in your picture. I think it's the perfect shade of medium brown.
