    Question Pilot's strap with rivets - Sources?

    I am looking for a good source for Flieger / Aviator / Pilot's leather straps with rivets at the spring bar end. Stowa makes a nice looking strap, but only available in 20mm. Any ideas for sources would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance, Mike W.

    Do you need the rivet to be functional or just there for decorative purpose??

    Rivets are for looks only...

    Thanks for the info. on Jurgens, I am looking a picking up a pilots watch or two within the next few months and am trying to get a head start on some straps (I'm the kind of guy that changes straps often).

    Thanks again for the replies, Mike W.

    If it's for look only, check out steinhart straps, very nice and thick at low price.

    Only for look and a homage to the WW II pilot's watches.

    "Steinhart" is "Debaufre" in the States -- but you probably knew that . . .

    Also check out Panatime -- Stan is great!

    Suggest using Loctite 243 on rivets, stops them unexpectedly coming undone.

    I don't have any personal experience with them, but TimeFactors has some nice looking aviators straps listed at the following link:
