Gather ye 21mm straps for Seikos while ye may

For my new SNA411P1 Flightmaster, a few strap options for those hard to find 21mm stubby and super tight lugs. I'm not a fan of my Seiko bracelets (although the one that comes with this is not half bad...but not half decent either). Here goes L to R and all are quick release: ZuluDiver Mayday padded sailcloth (which is actually rubber made to look like sail). Barton sailcloth in grey with leather backing which is just long enough to fit my 6 1/4" wrist. Barton super soft black rubber with the reverse side yellow. The rubber comes stock with the pin and buckle piece and a long and short slotted strip for the big and little amongst us.

I also couldn't stay with the Seiko bracelet for the mighty Flighty. It is well made but too chunky for my taste.

I went the TGV route and picked up an NDC parachute strap.

It would be a lie to say I haven't been watching TGV's Flighty videos on replay. But, I was honestly surprised how many awesome 21mm options are out there since he kind of dismissed them for the NDC.

Oh I know - I am a collector of vintage chronographs, and many of the European chronographs from the 1960s and 1970s have 19mm or 21mm lug widths - and even more troublesome they require curved strap ends. This puts all the quick-release options out. I usually have to have straps custom made for them so that I can get a rally style strap with curved ends that will accept curved spring bars.

Here is an example of one I had made for a 1970s ONSA chronograph (made by Strapped For Time to my specifications - https://strappedfortime.com/ ):

I even had to have one made for a 23mm lug width once for a very cool mid- 70s Le Jour chrono. Some really good strap makers also on Etsy.com.

Yeah, this is a new line that ZuluDiver just released. Texture wise I almost can't tell the difference. Strangely, my 21mm fits well but the 22mm I put on my Tudor BB Heritage 41 fits longer. I didn't see a short or long option when I bought them, so it is a bit weird.

Oh yeah. I actually live near the most congested exit on the most congested length of 95 which, of course, is the most congested interstate in the country.
