    Leather straps for fixed bars

    Or to be more specific, straps that fit my skinny wrists. I've bought a PRD 29a, the older version with fixed bars. I'd like to dress it up now and again. The Rios Arizona would be a great option but it's just a little too long. Any other suggestions? Preferably something I don't need to glue on.

    I recently got a single pass leather strap and trimmed it.

    Iíve found Etsy to be a good source for straps with specific requirements and at a reasonable cost.

    This site shows the 18 mm Arizona as 82 / 114 in length.

    The 18 mm LBS is given as 72 / 112 while Fluco and Di Modell come in at 75 / 115.

    Search on clip for all the options and colours.

    Vario makes a screw-fastened leather strap with a bund for fixed lugs (https://vario.sg/collections/crazy-h...er-watch-strap)

    Some pics with my Seiko RAF Gen 1:

    Leather NATO looks to be the best option, I'd probably cut the second strap/keeper off and use as a single pass option especially on smaller diameter pieces....but hey, it's totally up to you.
