    Strap suggestions for this vintage, please

    So, I'm finally going to get a strap for this one--I'm thinking something olive colored or military inspired?

    Suggestions are appreciated. Width is ~16mm. Hands are blue steel (noting this just in case someone thinks they might not match with an olive strap or something else).

    Another photo. And, no, this nato doesn't fit the watch. It's a couple mm too wide.

    Yes I agree. Maybe something in canvas, or a two-piece Nato, or a nice dark brown finished grain strap as suggestions?

    It would also look nice on a Brady sailcloth strap.

    Honestly, I think just a nice leather, well made, and then accent stitch it in an olive colour, and you'd have a winner.

    Trade the blue accent for olive and I think it would work great.

    Also, maybe a mustard colour leather, and then again with olive stitching. Would give it a touch more liveliness.

    CAD, those look incredible. Where can I look those up? Or are they custom?
