    UK buyers, Where do you get your straps from ??

    For those based in the UK, where do you shop for your straps .

    I've been collecting watches for 6 months now and got about 20 watches.

    About 10 of my watches, I want to change the straps.

    Most of the people that have talked about their straps are based in USA and bought from there.

    Are there any good online strap shops you can recommend ? Am after natos, canvas, leather, rallyes etc.

    I don't really want to order from USA due to delivery times and postage costs for just a small and inexpensive item.
    Current:
    Sekonda Quartz (skeleton dial)
    HMT Janata (hindi writing)
    Seiko Orange Monster
    HMT Pilot LE (blue hands)
    Seiko 5 Sports 6119-8450 (blue dial)
    HMT Kohinoor (silver dial)
    HMT Janata (stick markers)
    Seagull 1963 (38mm)
    Seiko BellMatic 4006-7020 (silver dial)
    Vostok Amphibian Classic 420059 (blue dial)

    watchbandcenter.com is excellent (Europe based). I've had them ship lots of straps to me in North America (fast service and good prices).

    Your cheapest option is https://www.cousinsuk.com , given you order enough to a) qualify for free delivery or b) order more tham one (to justify the postage charge). Cousins is a distributor and beats any other price I have ever seen... This applies for many other things too, proper tools, parts etc. You can also order from AG Thomas in Bradford, I like them, as they are local to me so I can go and collect whatever I want. Their prices are a bit higher than cousins but still under the ordinary high street ones...

    Watchbandcentre are pretty good.

    I've just got a strap from Steveostraps (based in Dorking) and I'm impressed with the quality and service for the price.

    The same is true for CloverStraps (wus member trikpa). Great service and pretty quick coming from within the EU.
