    Strap for use with Black Bay clasp

    Good day, all.

    I posted a previous thread about this, but will start a new one and let the other one die on the vine.

    I'm trying to find a strap, either made of fine rubber (a la Hirsch Pure) or dark brown alligator (which I think might actually look quite nice - who knows) that is very close to the same dimensions as the Black Bay's strap that will work with that wonderful clasp. I've found plenty that taper from 20mm at the lug end to 18mm at the buckle end, but not very many at all where the one side (if you will) is half the size of the other such that the clasp will meet up in the middle of the wrist and the whole thing won't be too long. Thickness is of course also a concern.

    Do any of you know of something that might work? I feel like I've exhausted my Internet searches, so I turn to you strap gurus here.

    Thanks,
    Mick

    Okay, well, sheesh - I guess I might be overthinking this. So, on the Hirsch PURE note, we have the 20/18 measurements, which work; the grand total length of it seems to be very close to the 120/80 "Long" version and maybe a bit better in the slightly shorter "Medium" length; though the thickness of 4.4 looks to be pushing it by my calculations which appear to only allow for a maximum of 4 mm.

    Yes, a normal strap or either 75 x 115, or 80 x 120 should line everything up correctly. Thickness relates more to the strap fitment to the case to make sure you have enough clearance.

    The Hirsch should fit just fine.

    the black bay require a 22/18, not 20/18.

    the thickness is the main concern to fit the clasp as well.

    i've done alot of oem replacement straps as many people don't like the original strap.
