    What strap should I put on this watch?

    Just purchased an old Vostok Amphibia off Ebay, from around 1980. I was drawn to it because of the wear on it, giving it that cool patina'd look, as well as the red and black bezel as most watches in my collection lack in color. I got it for cheap and think it was a good buy. It is about 39.8mm and I'm excited for it to come in the next couple weeks. I have attached three pictures. Would love to know what you guys think of it. Anyway, I have no idea what strap to put on the watch when it comes in so I'm open to all recommendations. Tell me what strap best suits this watch!

    What strap should I put on this watch? (modified with pics this time)

    Sorry, I got ahead of myself and posted the thread without pics, so here it is now......Just purchased an old Vostok Amphibia off Ebay, from around 1980. I was drawn to it because of the wear on it, giving it that cool patina'd look, as well as the red and black bezel as most watches in my collection lack in color. I got it for cheap and think it was a good buy. It is about 39.8mm and I'm excited for it to come in the next couple weeks. I have attached three pictures.

    Nice pick up. Choosing the right strap can be a challenge sometimes. Given the vintage vibe, I would perhaps look at dark red leather with distressed finish? That would pick out the red of dial. Good luck hunting for the right strap, it may take several attempts but that also a great way to build up a strap collection.

    I'd say a distressed leather, but since its a dive watch I would try and find a faded nato that matches it's style and color scheme.

    To me, this watch screams "thick brown vintage leather". Check strapsco on ebay; they have this.
