    Ready-made 21mm straps?

    Hi guys,

    ive been really looking through all the resources i could find, googling, with help of forumers, but i simply cant find a good range of 21mm straps.

    why is a 21mm strap lug size so difficult? my watch is an IWC Pilots chrono. im using a 20mm strap now and its so unsightly with that gap.

    some suggested to get a 22mm and to trip off the edges, but i still want to find a proper 21mm strap. can anyone point to me? i dont want a custom made, but prefebably a allligator leather 21mm in matt black.

    not very difficult, but just cant find any!
    please help! :thanks

    why in the world do they even make 21mm lugs if its so hard to find bands to fit them? and why is it so hard to find watch bands to fit 21mm lugs when the watchband makers know they make 21mm lugs?i think the easist thing would be for the freakin watchband makers to just trim a little off the top and make 21. about 1/4 of all watchband people have 21mm and iit pisses me off. anyone have any suggestions for me?

    Don't sweat - buy 22mm straps. They squeeze in without a problem.

    I just ordered a couple an hour ago from the "Watch Boys" out of Toronto, Canada. They have a nice selection at good prices; but of course, I haven't actually seen one in person yet. Google them.

    Another shout out to The Watch Boys. Their straps are super high quality and service is second to none!
