    Suggestions for a strap like this?

    Thanks in advance to anybody who reads this and helps out!

    I'm picking up a DLC coated watch and am looking for a 22mm strap similar to the one on the left. The color and stitching are perfect, and I am open to a variety of textures/grains. I'm looking for good quality leather and my budget is anywhere between $50-$100 or so. Bonus points if the buckle is already DLC/PVD. Do you guys have any links or recommendations for something like this?

    Alternatively, is there a way I should be searching for a strap that looks like this if nothing comes to mind?

    Personally I have never seen a strap that would match it "perfectly" on sale anywhere. There are a ton of custom strap makers on these forums though that I am sure would be happy to help you out. You could also check out the padded brown straps on Bas And Lokes and see if one will do for you. The stitching won't match but they are happy to change stitch color and other simple things like that on request.

    Looks like it might be buffalo or emu, but could just be grained leather. You should first check Watchbandcenter. Huge selection of straps at reasonable prices, and they have a good search tool. I don't think they offer PVD buckles on the straps, but they sell them separately; just make sure the tang will fit the strap holes.

    There is a sticky at the top of this forum that lists a number of on line strap vendors you can review for ideas.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll be checking that out. Do you have an idea of what the texture on the strap is called? Also, would you call that stitching orange or something else?

    Looks like Copper stitch and I would also call that a buffalo grain.

    You might want to check out custom straps. For under $100, you can likely get whatever you want made for you. Most will allow you to pick the strap material, the stitching color/pattern, buckle style/color, etc.
