    Please provide suggestions for Brown Alligator Leather Straps

    Would you please provide some suggestions for brown alligator leather straps an Omega Speedmaster Date 3210.50? I really like the color / look of the strap in link below.

    See below for some relevant information on the watch:


    • 19mm lug width
    • 46mm lug to lug length



    Some other relevant information:



    • I have 6.75" diameter wrists, so I believe the length I would need is 115/75
    • I was looking for the band to be padded, preferably something around 5mm tapering to 3mm thickness
    • Prefer a leather band that is not extremely glossy, but not quite matte either
    • Was originally looking for a deployment clasp, but an Omega deployment clasp is over $200 alone, so I am leaning towards an Omega tang buckle now.
    • I was looking at #8 from Peter.Watchacc at the link below, but I wanted more padding

    • I am willing to pay up to $300 for the right band



    I really appreciate any information you fine people could help me out with. Thanks.

    CAD would be my suggestion if you are wanting to have something made for it.

    You might try Rios1931 straps on eBay. They make a nice gator in several styles for $125 in 19mm.

    Hirsch Makes an excellent after market strap. The Viscount straps are high end quality at $375. I went with a navy blue one for my Baume and Mercier. I am thinking of getting another Viscount in dark brown. Plus they are water resistant up to 100 meters.

    Hirsch is a good option, especially as they make the original straps you refer to

    The size you are after is mid way between the two length options available form Hirsch, Medium is 110/70mm and Long ( Standard ) 120 / 80mm so you might need to compare these lengths against your current strap to see which best suits but here"s a few options.

    The above are not as heavily padded, coming in about 4mm as in comparison to the Hirsch Viscount, pictured below, 5.9mm at the watch end and the top of the range with Hirsch
