Mondaine strap ... in brown?
I like my Mondaine Night Vision for many reasons. I also like its strap which is light, shaped (ie tapered in its thickness), lined and functional. Nothing too special, but they only make them in black and red. And, maybe...if you can find one, white.
I'd like a brown strap for my watch. Can anyone recommend one, please? It's 20 mm lug width, plain, parallel (not tapered), and not a "chunky" design as I see a lot of members put on their divers.
Any suggestions, please?
In case you don't recognise the model...

Thanks for the suggestions. As you say, there are some nice straps on their site. Unfortunately, they don't appear to have a 20/20 in smooth leather - which is what I'm after. I'd even have a stiched strap like one they make for Panerai: link.

Thanks for the suggestion, but it's not quite what I'm after as that one tapers down to the buckle and I'd like to stick with the Mondaine 'look' as far as possible.

I think I've found one!
I think I've found what I want; the Hirsch Scandic. It's calf leather and available in brown (link) and many other colours.
Thanks for your suggestions.
Did you end up fitting the strap? I'm also tempted with one and would love to see how it looks!
