    Put a Hirsch strap on Intra-matic

    Not anything flashy, as the look is basically the same, simple. There is a difference in the texture between the original and Hirsch. The Hirsch is the Diamond Calf leather strap.

    The Hirsch tapered at the buckle just like the original so I was able to transfer the Hamilton buckle.

    The top and bottom of the Hirsch are very soft and smooth.

    Here are some pics.

    Nice! This will be helpful information when I eventually have to replace the strap on my Intra Matic. You have done your fellow WUS members a service!

    Hirsch Diamond Calf is a pretty near match to the original, slightly lighter in texture but close enough, might want to consider a Genuine Croco to dress it up for those special nights out !!

    WatchObsession,

    I bought the strap from your website. Took a while to get to me, but it's a long way from the UK to Texas, and it seemed like it was stuck in Chicago forever.

    Good experience, I'll purchase from ya'll again.

    I put a Diamond Calf on my Intra-matic. It's the closest thing to the OEM look that's out there... and better quality. I was forced to find an alternative because the OEM strap was ridiculously short.

    The next thing you should try is a Milanese mesh bracelet. The Intra-matic looks unbelievable on a Milanese mesh... it's the perfect, retro style match.

    Thanks for your order, much appreciated by us all here at WatchObsession, delivery times can be frustrating, especially with the Customs Clearance, seems to take an age sometimes, so thanks for your patience, much appreciated.

    I definitely want to put a mesh on my intra matic and my visodate but I have no idea which brands are good. Do you have any recommendations? I checked out Staib but they are a bit too expensive for me at the moment. Thanks
