Thread: Help with a new strap for Zenith

  1. #1

    Help with a new strap for Zenith

    Here we have my Zenith big date pilot. Love the size, matt dial, el primero movement, understated brushed case .....

    Iíd like a different look for it though and think a strap like the rubber JLC put on the Polaris would look good. Nearest I can find is Hirsch Accent. But they donít do that in the 21mm lug size (tapers to 18mm) that the Zenith measures

    Any suggestions gratefully received & A couple of pics attached

    I have the same watch and had the same dilemma. I love the watch but the strap colour is a little underwhelming. I tried a nato for a while but now on a smoke grey Hirsch Duke. It's 20 not 21 but one on the wrist it looks fine.

    thanks Pete & for posting the photo .....I just want to give it a more sporty feel which I think would suit it. I like rubber and sailcloth straps. I think Zenith do a silicone at about £220 (gulp) ..... shame Hirsch don't do that rubber in 21mm, but maybe I will order the 20mm and see how it fits (thank you for the idea)

    I'd say get in contact with Jean Rousseau in London - they will make you whatever you want in whatever material to the same quality as the zenith straps, but a bit cheaper.
