    Please Help Me Find Perfect Leather Strap for Tudor Heritage Ranger

    All summer I've been wearing the watch on a Navy RAF from Terry over at ToxicNato which I think it looks good on but looking into getting a leather strap for the Fall. I have the OEM leather band and even after wearing it for a few months I find it incredibly uncomfortable and stiff. I'm looking for simplicity and comfort. Not looking for a leather nato (though I think that could be an attractive combo on some wrists).

    At the moment the leader in the clubhouse is the Crown and Buckle Black Series Fennec. I haven't seen too many reviews on the Black Series but I know C&B has a good reputation around here. Anyone have any other suggestions I should be looking at? I was thinking Happy to look at ebay or etsy or other people too, just trying to make an informed decision. Thanks so much in advance for any help!

    Crown and Buckle is most excellent all around. All great straps for the money.

    If you like that design, you might try looking on etsy.com as well.

    I like ColaReb leather straps which you can find at Holbens. That's what I would do if I had a Tudor Ranger. In fact I am seriously looking at the Ranger. One drawback is that there's no date on that one.

    I would say that you'll look quite a while before finding a strap that works better than the Fennec. I even like the contrast stitching...which often I can pass on...because it largely mirrors the dial/indices color pattern. The strap is understated but with character, due to the texture. It gives a vintage impression, which is also entirely appropriate.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I think the C&B Fennec would likely work very well, just wanted to explore all possibilities. I know its a polarizing watch around here but I think there are quite few Rangers on wrists so I imagined others had gone through the same search.

    As you look at what to order strap handmade, there can be their own preferences

    It seems to me that these watch will approach AMMO leather or vintage.
    Just some kind of exotic skins such as ostrich
    Stitching should be minimal
    That is what I can offer options
