    Vintage Helbros Strap Suggestions

    Just got a new-to-me Helbros Invicible back from service and am looking for strap options. Photos below are on an 18mm leather NATO from another watch.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Great watch. That distinctive vintage style, and it says Invincible on the dial? Want.

    Anyway, my suggestion would be for a simple strap from a very nice leather, with a minimal accent stitch. With that gold case, I'd want to go with something that provides a bit of contrast, maybe a deep brown, and then either matching brown accent stitches, or a lighter, natural colour to give it a small dose of casual.

    MOAR PICS when you sort out the strap - I want to see more of that watch.
