    Check the sponsors' sites. They have tons of nice straps, in general. 21mm are always a problem, though. If you find some 22mm straps that you really like, some work pretty well on a 21mm watch. I find that thick, flat straps are not so easy to squeeze down to 21mm, but straps that are padded and have thinner edges do fine.

    watch-band-center.com is my go to site for odd lug width straps. I'll be looking for 19mm straps as soon as my 39mm HydroConquest arrives on Monday (19mm lug width).

    They have a 21mm fish leather strap that might be appropriate for a diver:

    They are located in Germany and carry a nice selection of uneven sized straps.

    Its really a diversale watch that looks great with almost any strap or band. I have been using mine on a nato and carbon strap lately and love it. I also found out that you can fit almost any 22mm leather/rubber band on it. Really love the watch! Here are some pictures...(the carbon strap is 22mm)
