    But the original strap suits it so well...
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Try our strap forum

    I mounted the brown Stowa Airman strap without rivets. You may also consider Jürgens (Jürgen Hauff s-parts) strap.

    Hello Meles,

    you might try the Hirsch Liberty
    f.e. :

    http://www.watchband.biz/assets/own/...watchband.biz/

    - search for "Liberty"

    A very nice strap (but a little too long for my 7"-wrist...)

    A few weeks ago I bought black and brown straps from Timefactors with rivets, but also available without:

    http://www.timefactors.com/tfstrap.htm

    Good quality at a moderate price and perfect for the Airman Auto.

    Astonishing nice is the canvas strap (on top of this page) in the colour "sand" - a cheap and very comfy strap for the summer...

    Regards
    Gerd

    Timefactors sells a version of their aviator strap without rivets. I'm wearing the riveted version with my Airman as I type this. :)

    Check Panatime.com for some really nice and affordable 22mm brown vintage leather straps. They are very thick and comfortable and they offer a couple of different ones.
