    I've seen quite a few nice person straps, can anyone recommend a seller?
    I'm in the UK.

    Watch out for the clasps, the pins an shitty one can come out meaning that you loose your watch!

    Eulit make a couple types, one with a stitched in clasp, the other double threaded.

    These are the more expensive end of the market - German designed and made.

    The cheap Asian clones that watch obsession sell for £9.99 aren't so great.

    If you are in the UK Watchgecko definitely is the place to go. I am in Arizona and they managed to get my order to me with free shipping in three days. I really like all the straps I got from them, especially the two Eulit Palma Pazific perlon straps. I bought one two piece for my Speedmaster and a single piece for my Hamilton. Their new sewn in buckle has been fine. My only desire is that the one piece were longer - I have a 7.5 inch wrist and if it were any shorter I wouldn't be able to use the strap. It looks really tight in this picture but it isn't bad at all. 20160713_111109.jpg

    +1 @ watchgecko. Super fast delivery. I purchased from their eBay store as they have 10% off when you buy 2 straps.

    +1 @ eulit palma & panama straps. The Palma has a slightly thicker weave than the Panama. Nicely made quality straps that feel like they will last ages.

    I got two perlon straps from wristcandywatchclub.com and they seem to be pretty good. Attached are some
    Pictures.

    If you want to see these straps in better detail, check out " the urban gentry" on youtube, he has a review of it.

    The loop that holds the extra strap is dirty on mine as I was just working on my car, going to go wash the strap right now!

    This is my pet peeve with perlon straps. I have yet to find one with a decent buckle. :thumbsdown:

    Eulit is phasing out the old style buckle in favor of ones that are only sewn in. It works very well, and is quite comfortable. While the price is much higher, they are the only "perlon" straps that are actually made from Perlon. 20160715_142701.jpg 20160715_142733.jpg 20160715_142749.jpg

    That looks like a better solution. Will have to give them another try.
