    Please recommend straps for Maurice LaCroix and Armand Nicolet

    Hello all, and thank you for taking a moment. I have two on the way, and Iím pretty certain Iíll be looking to replace the bracelet/strap. Iíve included the best photos I could find, since I canít take photos while theyíre still with UPS! Iím not a big fan of bracelets (Maurice LaCroix), and itís rare that I like an OEM strap (Armand Nicolet). My criteria are:

    No exotics.
    No print (croc print, etc.).
    No quick release.
    Must have the channels for the spring bars securely stitched.
    Buckle must be securely stitched.
    No deployant/deployment/whatever the correct term is.
    Should be $50 or under (each), but for the perfect strap Iíll consider a little more.

    and here are the not so good, but best I could find photos:

    I believe we fulfill all your requirements, what do you think about our vintage- and suede leather straps? Safe 15% with the WUS member voucher code: watchuseek

    The vintage military green strap could fit the ML perfectly, when you don't want to go for classic brown or black. I can also try to photoshop your choices on the two shown watches

    Iím not a fan of suede - are all of your vintage-style straps suede? Iíve had a few straps from you, and wouldnít hesitate to buy from you again if you have something with smooth leather. The quality of the straps I had was excellent! I think I tried you out because you offer 21mm straps, then I was glad I did, so I picked up a couple in more common sizes. If it isnít widely known that you offer 21mm, you should shout it from the rooftops - theyíre hard to find.

    Maybe WatchGecko's Simple Handmade Italian Leather Watch Strap which seems to be on sale for about $40: https://www.watchgecko.com/classic-h...-leather-strap

    Something from Colareb perhaps?

    No we don't only offer suede, I linked the vintage leather straps as well - It's soft leather strap, little vintage styled - If you like it a little more classy and casual we also offer leather straps from Eulit, Eulut and Barington but only in 18-, 20- and 22 mm

    Thank you, glad to hear :) yes we do offer most of our WB Original straps in 18-, 19-, 20-, 21-, and 22 mm

    Thanks for the replies. I do like Colareb straps, but I wish they had a brown with a hint of red. I received both watches and Iím returning the ML. Itís very nice, but I just donít think itís worth as much as 1.5 to 2 of my others. Iím doing something Iíve done once or twice before - Iím ordering another of one I recently sold and miss. Itís an Eterna Eternity Silver Dial on a bracelet. I think I have just the strap for it, but Iím on the hunt for one to put on the AN and one to put on a Hamilton Regulator Silver/White Dial (not the newer cinema version).

    Out of curiosity why didnt you like about the ML? I have had watches from ML in my cart a few time, but never purchased.

    There wasnít anything about the ML I didnít like, it just didnít seem any nicer than other watches Iíve paid considerably less for. Iím sure someone with a more refined eye would see enough of a difference to justify the price, and Iíd love to have something like their retrograde model.
