    What strap for my Kemmner Tonneau?

    I'm having an ongoing struggle trying to match my Kemmner Tonneau with a strap. I've browsed through Google ad nauseum. And I LOVE this watch!

    I have a very cool beige, almost orangish leather strap I got with the original purchase from a WUS, but I need a black one.

    I do not like the deployment strap the watch ships with, so I picked up a cordovan, but it's just not doing the trick for me.

    Any suggestions?

    Preferably black, though I am not opposed to oxblood/dark reddish either. Generally not a big fan of prints, such as croc, lizard, etc.

    Here's my watch on the cordovan:

    Might check the sponsor page on this site for other selections from vendors.

    There is also a sticky at the top of this forum that lists a number of on line strap vendors as well.

    I know the feeling, have been pondering the same question the last couple of weeks as I absolutely love the watch but I am not convinced about the stock strap either.

    I have narrowed it down to two straps which I think will work on the tonneau:
    First up is a regular black calf leather strap with black stitching and pretty thick (4-5 mm). I have this strap and tried it on the tonneau and in my view it is a really nice match!
    A good place to find one like this might he toshi straps, as far as I remember his designs are pretty similar to this.


    Second option is a rally style strap, as the casing of the tonneau is pretty similar to a tag monaco (for example this strap: http://www.watchobsession.co.uk/coll...hite-stitching).

    Let me know what you think, and if you come up with something else!

    Great minds must think alike indeed!

    My current two choices are almost identical to yours. I looked at Toshi, but am now leaning towards Gunny 317; I too like its thickness and simplicity:

    I haven't yet made up my mind on a rally strap but have liked them for a while, plus I currently do not have any watch on a rally. I like your watchobsession choice, except I think black stitching would be better.

    I also like the Heuerville, leaning towards the reddish brick colour, though I'm not sure about the tapering to 16mm:

    Maybe black with some white stitching, like on this Hirsch

    Man, I could make straps for that watch all day. Where to buy? My wallet is open for business.

    I know that Roland Kemmner has an ebay store under "erkahund", but he currently does not have any of the Tonneaus. You could contact him; he's good at getting back to you and a good guy to deal with.

    Re: What strap for my Kemmner Tonneau?

    Hi Guys,

    I am reviving this thread since I am in the same boat as the OP.

    Recently, I got myself a Kemmner Tonneau and I love the watch but the strap is not quite right.
    I tried a similar strap with white stitching but I'm still not convinced.

    The original strap is too long for my small wrist and I'm not sure the buckle has a place on what is essentially a dress watch.
    At the moment, a flat black strap, maybe cordovan, with subtle black stitching, Nomos-style, seems the way to go but I can't seem to find any decent ones in 22mm.

    I hope to see some suggestions and examples from Kemmner Tonneau owners who have also tried to solve this situation.

    Thank you!
