    Strap recommendation (leather, 22mm, thick-ish, white stitch)

    i am looking for a strap recommendation (what strap and where to buy)

    it has to be 22mm (and available in 20mm would be nice too), leather (weather proof is nice, i don't dive or swim with it, but i don't want to worry about it when washing my hands or in the rain), thick-ish (maybe 4-6mm thick), contrasting stitches (maybe white is nice)

    best to stay under $40 if its all possible, and normal length (180-ish mm?)

    Panatime has some nice ones that would fit your list - as does Fredawatchstraps. I also like IWM as their prices are super.

    I have a Hirsch Liberty and I bought it because I was told that it was "long". I need an 8in and it just barely buckles on the last hole for me. Its not really a genuine 'long" in my opinion.

    i guess that depends on your wrist size

    for me i have 48mm (lug to lug size) SAR with 180mm (about 7") strap and i buckle on the 2nd top most hole (shortest) with my 6.5" wrist

    so my guess would be a 50mm U1 with 8" (202mm) strap would be too long without punching new hole

    Your math sounds right to me. Disappointing because the Liberty is a nice, if thick, strap.

    Try IW - I've been amazed at the quality for the price.

    I've got a liberty and a 6.5inch wrist. It works fine for me. It's really not that long. mine is 8inches long total 115mm for the strap end and 90mm for the buckle end

    if you don't mind, can you meassure the length from the springbar edge to the closest first hole on the long strap?

    Another strap similar to the Liberty is the Di-Modell Jumbo, which is available in a more "regular" length and can be had for under $30.00.
