    What leather strap do you run on your Helson SD (Or other 22mm Diver)

    Pretty self explanatory. I just got a Helson 42mm and I am looking for some good prospects for a leather band. Any help would be greatly appreciated and pics are always welcome!

    Re: What leather strap do you run on your Helson SD (Or other 22mm Diver)

    I have a first gen SD, so mine is a 24mm. I know it's not leather, but I had it on a Hirsch Extreme, then purchased an ISOfrane and have had it on there since. Personally, I find the watch too sporty and tough to even consider leather for it.

    I just purchased a Bonetto Cinturini, model 317 for it this evening. Be a week or so for that to arrive.

    Anyways, here are photos on the ISO and Extreme...

    Thanks for the Pics supawabb. I Like the looks of both of those actually. My 500m version came with a strap that looks similar to the isofrane. I really like the looks of the extreme on there though. I'll probably purchase one of those in the near future to dive with and what not. This is my first piece with screw lugs so I like the idea of being able to dress it up and dress it down easily, thus the question about the leather straps. Do you know anyone selling the extremes for a reasonable price?

    Thanks for the suggestion Franco. I did actually skim through that thread and saw a Kain Heritage I liked a lot. Was just curious if there were anymore Helson SD's out there with something different. I actually ordered a Kain this evening. We will see how it goes!

    Brady Sailcloth with orange stitch. No brainer there. It will look absolutely killer on that watch!

    FlyinB, check out the following link, it is from the Unofficial Helson on the dive forum. You are bound to see dozens upon dozens of straps on all color variants of the SD. https://forums.watchuseek.com/f74/uno...ks-402456.html
