    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...

    Picture borrowed, with thanks, from Mondaine link used above.

    I've put them into my favorites for future reference. Thanks again...

    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!

    Yes I did...and it's stayed on my Night Vision Mondaine. IMO, it makes it looks a more casual, ie less B&W. I don't have any photos at the moment, but they're on my agenda. It's looks are a good match for the OEM strap, but it is slightly more lightweight (IMO).

    Just make sure you get brown (colour 10) rather than taupe (colour 12) that is sometimes sold as light brown (unless that's what you prefer). Watch Obsession now list both colours.
