    Watch strap for Mickey Mouse Watch!

    Hello, I received an Ingersoll Mickey Mouse watch as a gift. I love the watch, but have not been thrilled with the band. I have seen many great looking and unexpected strap and watch combinations on this forum including the Seiko on my wrist right now. I would like to submit my Mickey Mouse watch for suggestions. I'm thinking something casual and fun (it is a Mickey Mouse watch after all) and not too matchy. Leaning towards NATO, but the right piece of leather could work too. I have a couple of plain Jane watches in my modest collection so let's have some fun. The watch has 18mm lugs. Thanks for the suggestions!

    A red NATO to match Mickey's pants might do it.

    How about something like this?

    Hirsch LOUISIANALOOK Embossed Leather Watch Strap - RED | HirschStraps

    It is a alligator "embossed" strap, but it is also bright red so hard for that to not be considered playful. You could also go for....

    Di-Modell Rallye Black Red-Stitch

    A racy Di Modell strap in black with red stitching! It is pretty fun too thanks to the design and stitch. Both of them are also fairly cheap and come in 18mm!

    Like the idea of the rallye strap. Found a couple in brown leather with red stitching that look nice. What about an oxblood croc or lizard print. Too dressy? This will probably get worn with anything from t-shirts to button downs when the mood strikes me.

    Red or green RAF or perlon. Red for the pants, green for the center background color. Also look at Sui Generis' straps. They're patterned denim in a NATO style.

    Nah. not too dressy. The fact that mickey mouse is on the watch easily counters any dressy strap attempts :P

    Go classy. Only use the 12 o'clock spring bar, wrap a NATO around it, tie it to a belt loop, and use it as a pocket watch

    Does anyone know if there is a manufacturer that makes the red patent leather strap for the 1946 US Time Mickey Mouse wristwatch?

    Thanks for the tips. I really like the idea of a Rally strap with red stitching, but I want one in brown leather. Here is the front runner, but I might hold out until I find one with redder stitching.

    I ordered this NATO for dirt cheap on the 'bay to tide me over until I find the right rally strap.

    Hard to tell without knowing the lug width, but something here might work. An exact replacement might be hard to find for something that old. Good luck.
