    What are the 'go to Web Stores' for premium straps?

    Hello,

    I need to get another strap for my Zenith El Primero Stratos.
    The rubber strap which is on this watch is too long to fit my wrist (my wrist is a tiny bit below 7 inch).

    So, where do you shop if you are looking for a strap in premium quality.
    I'd like to get a rubber strap since I believe that this material fits the watch perfectly....
    The strap is 23 x 18.... Not a very common size as far as I've gathered.

    I found a few stores selling rubber straps but with a price tag of around $20 so I'm a bit concerned in terms of its quality.

    Any help/hints or pointers would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply, I've seen hirschstraps but they don't have straps in 23mm on the case-side.....I think a 22mm strap would look odd?

    Odd size rubber strap may be hard to get particularly if you need it in a specific length. ABP Paris does customized rubberized calf strap but it will be expensive. You best bet is to check with Zenith to see if they offer a shorter strap or get an after market Omega style deployant clasp.

    It's probably because of the kind of reviews they get:

    watchstyle.co.uk - one to avoid - takes payment - bans me - no strap no response
    Stay away from Watchstyle.com - Rolex Forums - Rolex Watch Forum

    Slightly OT, but it's crazy to me that an OEM strap on a high-end watch would be too big to fit a ~7" wrist. Based on some polls that have been done here over the years, the average wrist diameter is 6.75-7".
    Cheers,

    I've had nothing but good service from them, but when I've tried to recommend them to others, even in PM, the name is blocked. I figured the owner was Ernie's half-brother who maybe gave him one too many wedgie as a kid.

    Forum sponsor Fredawatchstraps, as suggested, is always good. But 23mm in rubber will be tough, I imagine.
