    Is it really this hard to find a long-length, leather, racing style 18 mm band?

    Either my Google skills are deteriorating or this for some reason is a rare item.

    I can't even find much in the way of longer-than-normal racing straps of any width.

    Help a large-wristed brother out?

    We Know how you feel and carry XL straps for the larger wrists
    Our racing straps come in XL as well, but not in 18mm. We do have 20mm &22mm.

    If you can't find a suitable 18mm strap, you might want to consider custom. I just had an Heuerville strap made for my Speedmaster and absolutely love it. The construction is impeccable, and the quality of leather is amazing. Within a couple of hours the strap felt butter soft and completely broken in. Stewart will custom make his Heuer racer style straps to whatever size specifications you want, with either an 18mm or 16mm buckle and lots of colors and types of leather to choose from.

    This is a pic of a nubuck strap from the website. The strap I ordered was Umber Brown full grain English leather... beautiful.
