    Anyone has this strap or others from Colareb? Or any other good tips under 50$/€?

    I like the one that's one right now (picture 2) but the finishing and quality are terrible.

    I recently picked up two straps from twostitchstraps.com. They are just a tad thicker than I'd like, but at $55 a pop, I can't find much to complain about.

    B&R bands during their 20% off black friday sale can't be beat for quality "affordable" vintage/suede/racing designs.

    I own some 80+ straps . If it comes to quality, comfort wearing it, and colors i go for bulang and sons or Omega Nato.

    However this page has big scale overview of strap builders.

    +1. He did a custom strap for me as well with curved ends. Not cheap, but quality was good, and communications were clear, detailed and professional. I was very happy with it!

    I've collected a few very nice resources for leather straps over the years, but what I've been less successful with is my quest for good nylon straps - I'm looking for something like Cordura Nylon (not canvas!), and the straps should padded.

    Something like the Dark Side of the Moon strap or the nylon strap for the 2019 IWC Spitfire Chronographs. Did anyone come across any good manufacturer for this kind?

    (I know the thread title says "leather", but I felt this fits in here... if not I'm happy to move)

    Hi. Maybe I dont understand, but I find it difficult to find a band for my DSOTM. As I understand the size is 21 mm, and it seems that not many are producing this size.

    I bought a bunch of Theo and Harris straps which I love. Nice balance between comfort and durability and they look great, especially on vintage pieces:

    Not super exotic, but I do like the understated nature of it
