So, I bought myself this watch. I never liked fashion brands, but this one really caught my attention. The tall cylindrical casing with flat crystal and beautifully skeletonized dial with brand barely visible on the crystal, it makes it a really pretty watch. I have a somewhat tiny wrist so wearing girly watches was never really an issue for me. I have the Casio Futurist which is really narrow entirely with case and strap, but looks good. Same for Seagull M182SK which is also branded as women's watch. Anyway, the case of this Fossil Boyfriend watch is sized reasonably well, it's the strap that really gives it away as girly. Especially being beige even more so.
The original strap is just 18mm. I'm wondering, are there straps that would have 18mm at the lug where you attach it, but 24mm right next to the lugs and forward?
Like so (strap mockup in image editor):
Is there any special name for straps with such dimensions? I want to artificially make the watch to look bigger and strap wider like this. But I don't feel like cutting an existing 24mm strap to fit into 18mm lugs. I've seen such method of making watch look bigger and strap wider on my Seiko Spirit E-Ink where strap extends beyond lugs like this, but I don't think I've seen strap this way on sale as stand alone item.
I'm not sure about the strap yet, but I like Cordura a lot and I think I'll go with desert Khaki with 18mm lug dimension and strap at 24mm. So, is there any special name for such dimensioned straps so I know what to look for on eBay or in strap stores?
