    strap for Smiths PRS-29 from Timefactors??

    Don't like NATOs, or the alternative strap it came with which goes out to the full width of the lugs if that makes sense. Any suggestions for a good leather strap that would go well are appreciated.

    Not sure what you mean, exactly. Do you mean the strap doesn't taper towards the buckle? In any event, it's a personal choice - a bit like ties or shoes - and what you think works. Price is also a consideration. Brown v black, stitched v unstitched, grained v smooth etc, etc. We don't have much to go on here... You could get 10 pages of suggestions and they might all be 'meh'!

    There are lots of online vendors with gazillions of straps. Here are two personal recommendations and both have quick shipping:

    Watchbandcenter in Germany (probably the largest selection of straps in the universe)
    Globalwatchband in Florida

    Post moved to the more suitable forum you should flick through to find a matching strap.
    Riveted black Flieger strap (Jürgens), Hirsch Andy or James for a more sporty look. Anyway, flick through here. Thousands of possibilities.

    I think the term for the old strap I dislike is a notched strap. The very end fits within the lugs, but then the rest of the strap is a bit wider. Like this.

    Anything in black or brown will work, hundreds of possibilities out there and that dial is clean enough it could go the sporty, casual, or dress route with a strap and work fine. Personally I would advise you to consider a black Hirsch liberty, assuming you can get it at the right lug width for the watch.
