    Leather strap recommendations (gold watch)

    Hi all,

    Hope everyone is safe and well

    Many thanks in advance for taking a look:)

    I just made my first (and very excited) purchase from the SC on an Ultimor 18k watch (purchased to match my wedding band)

    Would love to hear any reccs on a good leather strap. Ideal something in a deep red / burgundy

    I have been eyeing the one below from Hirsch:

    Also sharing a pic of the watch!

    Thanks again!

    NB: Huge thanks to Will for the sale!

    Best,
    Akash

    To the OP - you are looking in the right place IMHO.

    Beautiful watch and strap combination!

    Would you have a link to the specific one?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've been using him lately. I was always a Toshi strap man until I found him.

    He makes bespoke. Ask him what you want and he will show you the leather he has.

    How about genuine lizard rather than embossed calfskin: www.ukwatchstrap.co.uk/DiModell-Lizard-Classic-Burgundy-G9.html?

    Other than that one, select the lug size from the left hand column on their webpage and scroll down to see other burgundy offerings at about three-quarters of the way down.

    Think this might be the winner! Have you ordered from them before by chance?

    Thanks

    Many times and I'm very happy with them. If I recall correctly, you can only order one strap at a time and pay by PayPal. I once made an error and ordered the wrong size. My email to them prompted a cancellation of that order allowing me to order the right one. The straps arrive pretty promptly too...but it's RM and may be influenced by Covid. Search the forum for 'ukwatchstrap and I'm sure that you will find other satisfied customers.

    A Nomos cordovan strap? They look gorgeous on vintage dress watches the kind of Burgundy one in particular

    In my experience, ukwatchstrap.co.uk provides the best quality, choice, price, value for money, delivery et cetera in the UK.

    Just take your time and read the website carefully, because it's big and offers straps you may not have considered at first glance.

    I've also bought from ukwatchstrap and been very happy with both products and service. Here's another couple of places I've used that may be worth a look . . .
