Custom Leather Watchbands - where to get them made?

I ´ve had a Heuer vintage Monaco with a black band and the Heuer (no TAG) clasp, like Steve McQueen wore for about 20 years now. A while back the original band began to decompose but I was lucky to find a replacement.

Since then, however, they apparently only make the TAG Heuer branded watches (slightly different) and the bands to go with them. When the current replacement band goes (and it´s about to) I want to keep my Heuer clasp and not wreck the look of the watch with some newer clasp.

Other than eBay which seems to be exhausted, can anyone recommend excellent custom watch band makers that might be able to outfit me with a new band including the original clasp?

Austria / Germany / Switzerland would be great but I´m open to any suggestions as I love this watch. I have not contacted TAG directly about this as I have never found any reference to such a problem on their site or elsewhere.

Thanks in advance,

Man with a suitcase

I have a contact in Vietnam who specializes in croc and usually comes in around $50 USD. Let me know if you'd like me to cc you in an email intro.

Looking on the TAG website they still sell the Heuer branded watches with Heuer clasps (looks slightly different to yours though). So you should ask TAG if you haven't already. Although it doesn't answer the second part of your question.
Equus Leather do some excellent straps and are an affiliate vendor on here, it might be worth checking with them.

Hey mate - I would be interested in your Vietnam contact. Are you able to PM me the details please?
