    I got a nice leather nato from Steveostraps. A great strap that didn't break the bank:

    Another Steveostrap. This may get a mixed response but I had it made to give a different look to my daughters Seamaster.

    I'm a big fan of Steveo's stuff. Eagerly awaiting two more from him as I write.

    Recently received a strap from Steveo and can highly recommend also. I wanted a certain leather in a vintage style. It wasn't shown on his website but there was no problem in getting it made. Quick turnaround also. It won't be my last from him.

    what kind of turnaround are we talking here?

    I'm looking at placing an order with him for a custom strap to fit an Oris aquis so it'd be good to know

    Canvas

    Anyone any ideas where I can get a good canvas NATO/Military style strap for a CWC G10 with fixed lugs 18mm. I don't mind even if it's a Velcro type fastening in fact I wouldn't mind trying a Velcro. Like the khaki green type colour but it's not a major factor. Any ideas much appreciated

    I am now running the risk of this thread starting to look like an advert for Steveostraps but ..... If you check out his site he has canvas NATOs. He very kindly made me one with black hardware to suit my CW Typhoon. It is really well made but may not be the style you are looking for though.

    im afraid i have to concur with the posts above. my usual routine is 1. order/buy watch, 2. think about new straps, 3. email steveo or carl at GGB. pretty much every watch i own has a steveo/ggb option in the box or on the watch.
    2 of the best strap makers in the business and pricing is shocking good value for the quality you receive. GB should be proud

    the canvas para strap in green is a favourite of mine.

    hi Guys, noob here.

    I just wondered when it comes to bracelet straps, are they make and model specific or can you put generic ones on?

    Any idea where i could get a leather strap made for this? I've called a few places but am struggling to find somewhere that will do it. The small distance between the lugs means no conventional replacement strap will fit it.

    It's a Breitling Colt GMT +, model ref A32370.

    Any advice would be appreciated, I'm pulling my hair out here!

    Argh integrated straps! I think someone used to do a 'converter' attachment for solving this issue with these sort of straps, similar to those that enabled Casio G-shocks to be fitted with std. NATO straps... The Casio ones had something like a 16mm block one end but with std. 20mm gap 'lugs' at the other end... Haven't seen them recently though!

    An adapter would be an excellent idea - google is giving me no joy though - do you recall where you saw them before?
