    I recently bought a watch and the lug width is 18mm. I want to get a brown leather strap, but it's hard to find 18mm straps that will fit my 6.15" wrist. Will an average 7.5" strap fit my wrist? Will even a 6.5" strap fit my wrist? I really can't figure it out. I've been looking at thewatchprince.com but they have very limited 18mm short straps. Any suggestions?

    Custom order. ABP or Camille Fournet for high end. Banda for lower price.

    BP is good, service was nice at the Paris store. I will say that they are overpriced for the quality.

    I love it.

    It sucks that the only IWC that works on my wrist is the DaVinci and I don't care for that watch.

    Nope, definitely not. The 38.5mm version is ideal for my (7 inch diameter) wrist. Like all Nomos, though not to the extent of the Tangente types, the Club wears large compared to its size - and don't forget the lugs are very long on this perfect wristwatch. [​IMG]

    How do you find any watch for your enormous wrist? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    great looking explorer. try a grey maratac nato. they grey really looks great with the lighter
    904L steel (I wear my Sea Dweller exclusively on the grey maratac nato). also, the matte finish on the maratac hardwear looks great. the explorer would prolly look pretty great with a black or brown leather/croc strap.

    Minor thread hijack. Does anyone have a good source on the proper way to fit a zulu strap. I know how to fit a Nato strap, but have had no luck finding a guide on fitting a zulu.

    Look up natostrap.blogspot.com. The guy who runs it is a great guy to deal with too.
