    Waterproof Band with Bronze Hardware?

    I was recently gifted a Christopher Ward Trident Pro Bronze and I love the watch, and I love the leather strap that it came on, but I would like to get an additional strap that I could swim with - it seems a shame for a bronze watch to develop its patina entirely out of the water. Also I just love the watch and don't particularly want to take it off. So far the only bands that fit the bill are zulus with bronze rings, but on account of my small wrists I really can't pull off zulu straps (also I just don't particularly like them). I like nato straps, but I have yet to find any with bronze hardware, and I don't know if there are any canvas or rubber straps that have bronze hardware either. Does anyone have any recommendations? Obviously I want something that won't clash, so something in the dark brown or blue (light or dark, not royal) family would work, but not much else.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hirsch Robby series for another suggestion.

    Not easy to find straps with brass hardware, so I just purchase the bronze buckle separately, as they are easy to source, and swap out.

    I did not find it terribly easy to find bronze buckles... at reasonable prices. So I just swapped the buckle to a different strap any time I swapped straps.

    Data point: the Zelos Mako V2 in bronze comes with two straps -- leather and rubber. But only one buckle. If you want to swap straps, you gotta swap the buckle, too.

    Somehow it never occurred to me to swap buckles, which is dumb, but yeah I'll definitely look into finding a bronze buckle I like and then a reasonable strap, that'll certainly give me far more options. Thanks for the input!
