I have a 1940's Bulova gents watch with fixed bars. Spent quite a while searching for open ended strap for it, without any luck. 😢
Suggestions anyone? Just to make it more challenging..... I'd like a green strap. But, beggars can't be choosers...
Stopped wearing watches years ago when mobile phones began, although always fascinated by them.
Be wary of thickness. I had to deal with some 20's women's watch that was clearly designed for like a silk ribbon and no leather or nylon web was going to pass through those lugs. I'd assume this is a different story, but if you have an unloved NATO strap laying around, cut it narrower to check.
Should leather fit, you can get the glue-it-on-yourself leather jobs like so.
They exist you just have to keep looking and eventually one will fall in the right price range. Check eBay too.
Thanks for the suggestions, I compromised on a black one in the end.
Buying from the USA, by the time postage and UK import tax is applied. 🙄
After close examination using the Starret VMM at work. I realised that it is not a fixed lug bar, as what I initially thought were fixed lugs, rotated when, err, rotating the bar. Quite easy to see on the VMM, the magnification meant that the bar was about 20mm diameter. 😁 Cut it off and fitted a normal spring bar, more pointedly, this green strap.
