Favorite Watch Strap Retailers?

Greetings Fellow Timepiece Nerds,

I‘m not in the market for a new strap. I have plenty.…for now. However, I am curious as to what your favorite strap retailer or makers are. 
 

I live in the Seattle area and have been impressed with Holben’s Fine Watch Bands. Had a custom strap made from a lady in Canada once and it was perfect. 
 

Where do you buy from? Who would you avoid?

I came to recommend Holben's, but I see my services aren't needed.

Because I've answered this question many times on this site, I won't repeat myself here. But you might wish to avail yourself of the search function. It's right in the middle at the top of the page. I suspect there are others who feel as I do.

Delugs or Hirsch is my go to.

·

Strapcode has some really nice offerings in both straps and bracelets.

I've also bought from Holbens, Barton, and Panatime.

I think they need to be talked about more. Really good people.

Both are solid choices. I’m a big fan of Delugs.

Strapcode is solid. I I think I have a bracelet and a rubber strap from them for my Turtle. Quality products. Have to look at Panatime.

Not sure what to do with that response, but thanks for posting.

Erika Originals for MN style 

Hirsch for hybrid

Jean Rousseau for high end leather 

blu Shark for a wide variety of nato

omega are of course great but grossly overpriced 

·

Chinese no-name shops at Aliexpress, Alibaba and their ilk and this one guy that lives nearby who makes straps and other leather goods. 

They're cheap, end of story.

@WatchCrunch we need a wiki feature because this topic definitely needs a complete wiki. Each thread has some slightly different answers and it would be amazing to have a big list of all the top recommendations for each price point and type. @ChippewaCraig I’m glad you asked this again since I learned of some new brands! Ignore the haters :P

Jean Rousseau and DeLugs

I've ordered from Holbens and Bartons and been happy with both.  

Does anyone have any experience with Nomad Watch Works https://www.nomadwatchworks.shop/?  YouTube's algorithm spit out a video from someone who really liked their straps and I am sorely tempted.

Pretty sure a coworker bought one of Nomad’s rugged bands. Seems to be a good strap.

I’ve been tempted by JR in the past. Will have to check them out.
